Re: what are you reading?

ROWAN DID YOU FINISH STONE SKY YET because my copy came and I forgot to post here but it was SO GOOD.

I'm now reading What Happened - Hillary Clinton's memoir - and having Many Feels.

Re: Total Solar Eclipse 2017

I also don't see flaunting your eclipse trip as fundamentally different than talking on social media about any other vacation, or a show that costs lots of money, etc. It definitely can be obnoxious but I very much doubt most people are thinking "look how privileged I am!" Just "i want to share this...

Only partial here too but still super-cool! Watched with a combination of a pinhole viewer and glasses that coworkers were sharing.

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

i FINALLY saw Wonder Woman. Agreeing with :4houses: but perhaps for slightly different reasons than some listed here already. Spoiler thoughts below. so overall i loved it, but i didn't like Steve's death as Diana's motivation to access her powers. I do see Enigma's point about it reversing a trope,...

Re: do you have dice with more than six sides?

NOPE
I am embracing a hatred of board games right now, and I never got into the RPG stuff, and now I don't even have to hear about it and it's GLORIOUS.

Re: uninvited house guests

KILL THEM
I smashed a lot of bugs on my ceiling yesterday. I used to try and let spiders live in hopes they'd take care of the other bugs, but then one crawled in my ear while I was sleeping so now it's war.

Re: What career should you have?

it tells me to be a psychologist, or educator. But both of those would require more school, which I don't want to pursue at the moment.

Re: what do you dislike about children?

They're so LOUD! And they just take a lot of attention, and I don't really know how to talk to them.
My friend recently referred to her daughter (almost 2) as a "chaos monster" and ...yeah, that's pretty much what I don't like about kids: they're chaos. I like them only in small doses.

I recently read Obelisk Gate (and had read The Fifth Season several months before that). Seconding lilly's comment: SO GOOD. Personally I liked it much better than the 100K kingdoms, too. Currently re-reading Outlander, because it's fun and lighthearted and sexy, and I am very slowly reading All the...

Blue corn chips!
I've eaten blue Gatorade and blue icing. Of course neither of those is naturally blue, but they were blue when I ate them! Blue raspberry-flavored candies and Popsicles, too.

Re: What the worst performance you ever saw?

The musical theater group at my college always did a midnight show, usually while drunk. For some reason I went to the midnight show of their production of Rent. It was exactly as bad as you would expect.
