Happy Happy! Joy Joy! Pass the Chocolate Chai!

Good things:

* The nominees for the 2012 Hugo Award have been announced. I'm thrilled that StarShipSofa is a finalist, and I'm grateful to everyone who listens to and supports the podcast. Special congrats to my friends at the wonderful Apex Magazine for their nomination, as well!

* In honor of the second series of Sherlock coming to the US next month, the brilliant folks at DarkCargo (who are always up to something interesting) are hosting a "Sherlock! a-long!" for reading (or re-reading) the stories that correspond to the episodes.

* My appreciation for the Hunger Games film, which already was quite high, only increased after seeing it a second time. It definitely rewards multiple viewings.

* Speaking of The Hunger Games, have you seen the new Katniss Barbie? I can't quite decide if I'm horrified, amused, or pleased by this development. (After all, this may be the first one since the Dana Scully Barbie that actually represents a positive role model!)

* The first official shirt for The Hobbit makes me smile with glee. I can't wait to see Martin Freeman's performance.

* Now that Justified's season is over, there's Breaking Bad to anticipate. Of course, I'd be even more excited if this happened:

sci fi fantasy Harry Potter - Breaking Bad Season Five

* Happy early birthday wishes to prettybirdy979, cherylmmorgan, muuranker, izhilzha, and justicemuffins. May each of you enjoy a wonderful day and a brilliant year to come!


It doesn't feel cruel here; this morning it was 38 degrees and glorious! Oh, summer, never come...

“April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.”
- T.S. Eliot
