And another one...  


I’m watching that movie, for no reason other than it’s on tv and I’ve got sole control of the remote.

“So, Becky, have you given any thought to what you’ll major in in college?”
“… Gym.”

I’m missing my kitties. Still, tomorrow I will be home! Home to my kitties and my internet connection.
Home for Remus and Harry. Those wimps aren’t big on travel; it seems to really cut into their fuck time. Their written fuck time at least.

Harry: Yeah! *snuggles Remus*

So, Dad… I did tell you not to read this for a reason. I mean, I just wasn’t sure how you’d like to know about your daughter’s fascination with gay men. Or her incest fetish. Or her love for pseudo-pedophiles.

Remus: Hey!

Laguna: Hey!

Kidding! Sort of. Actually I read an article about one of the priests who “coerced” poor teenage boys into sexual affairs.

Harry: We aren’t nearly as coercible as people seem to think

Remus: *with a smirk* Indeed.

Harry: After all, I allowed myself to be seduced by a man old enough to be my father.

Remus: Wait a second…

Harry: One of my father’s best friends, in fact…

Remus: Hey now! *blushes* Leave that alone!

Harry: *thinks a moment* Maybe we are as coercible as people think…

Me: I was wondering…

Harry: But always of our free will…

Remus: Good enough for me!

Harry: It’s just more fun that way.

Heeee-eeey… is that Sting in Arachnaphobia? He is cute. Ah… but better with shorter hair, if I’m right.

Oh, speaking of Sting, (who was in Rose Red, which was written by Stephen King) I just got the new book of short stories by Stephen King at an ungodly price (still in hard-cover, you know). Everything’s Eventual. So far… I’m not majorly impressed. The first story had a highly scary premise, but just didn’t feel right. In other words… not terribly scary. Second story has something to do with the devil, so I’m not nearly as enthusiastic as I should be. Still, Stephen King’s bursts of genius usually seem to be most apparent in his short stories. So I’ll keep reading.

And I think I’ll draw for awhile. I want to try to get up a little early to do some running and get a shower and breakfast before being “awoken" to leave.

Everything’s Eventual

I've heard that one has a Dark Tower story in it, which is the only reason I'm considering buying the book. Have you read the DT story? Is it any good? (Or should I save my money for fannish junk? lol)

I did read the Dark Tower story and I think I enjoyed it (even though I haven't read that particular series. Then again, you don't really need it to get all of the story so... doesn't make a big deal). Umm. Gee. I'm just a little irritated because none of the stories are really scary anymore. They aren't horrifying and original and gross like the ones in "Night Shift". They aren't freaky and realistic and believable likes the ones in "Skeleton Crew". They aren't even thoughtful like the ones in "Nightmares and Dreamscapes". They're just there. Kinda self-parodying and self-indulgent. Only a couple are mildly interesting. The one called "Lunch At The Gotham Cafe" is as close as he comes to really bringing the old horror to the surface.
Anyway... um... that's my complaint against that book. I'd recommend getting the book out of the library to read the Dark Tower story, but I don't think I'd say 'buy it'. I mean... it is an interesting story... it's just... not... good. Umm... the best part about the whole thing is the cover artwork, I'm afraid. ;_____;

Thanks! I think I will just borrow a copy from the library, then. :)
