Just a knock-off update...

To say that I have accomplished one of my New Year's resolutions, which was to read both Moving Pictures and Monstrous Regiment, thus finishing all of the major Discworld novels.

I liked Monstrous Regiment better than Moving Pictures for three key reasons:

1) Maladict. An androgynous vampire (although if you read the book... or even the first half of the book... you know what sex he is) with a coffee habit who snarks at everyone and starts acting like he's in Vietnam when the coffee supply goes missing. Priceless. I thought a young (like, late teens to early twenties) Crispin (you know... back when he was more pretty than handsome) could have played Maladict well... and, of course, by the end of the book my feelings on that were considerably stronger. Because the image of Crispin in a short skirt is too wonderful. :P Maladicta, indeed.

2) The return of William de Worde and Otto... this time minus Sacharissa. Now, I think Sacharissa is a sweetheart, but William and Otto make such a good... team. Ehehehe. Well, they're cute together. Besides, newspaper life = too hectic for romance.

3) Vimes. I mean, duh. Although, I have to admit, Vetinari in Moving Pictures was extremely amusing.

Okay. And I feel all icky and sicky and dizzy and nauseous. So, I'm gone... hopefully not to be active for several more days now, though I'll have to find something else to read and/or do.

    I feel like I should write in here, at least for myself. So I will. Hah. The beginning of my semester was murderous, due to one of the off-campus…

  • I'm not cool enough for the Internet

    Whoa, so I go to update and find a mostly-written entry about last semester's terrible Harry Potter class. I totally don't even remember writing it.…

  • Another drive-by update

    It's a bit sad that updating has become a bi-yearly affair for me, but it's an unfortunate side effect of working and trying to pull my life…
