Because i have nothing to say but i like posting.

I am quite fond of Neil Gaiman’s journal. My favorite entries are definitely the April 8th/10th entries on slash fanfic and the April 13th entry about his daughter helping at a signing, but i also really like the bit in the June 16th entry about people “adopting” books. I need to read more of his stuff. No MLN library has Coraline yet, but all of the Sandman trade paperbacks are in the system, so when i get back from vacation in July i’m totally requesting them all through interlibrary loan. It’s mostly Cambridge and Somerville that have them. Someone asked me one time what my life would have been like if i’d grown up in Cambridge -- i lived there for the first year of my life. My life would definitely have been much different. I would have missed out on some great people, though.

And for anyone who cares, there’s an interesting InstPundit entry about Central Americans referring to the U.S. World Cup team as "el equipo de todos nosotros" (the team of all of us). Yes, i love my blog-addict father.

[Oh, the girl i mentioned who was going to marry her Internet boyfriend. My friend just told me, "she's not getting married. apparently her boyfriend is cheating on her." As awful as i'm sure that is for her, i am gladdened in a way.]
