Currently re-reading A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin, as I'm determined to re-read them all before the next one comes out mid-July. But I've been distracted by the Hugo nominees (SLOC & I are attending teh Worldcon in August & want to vote for the awards), as the first I picked to read was Con...

I've just come back from having my nails done - it's an indulgence I don't do very often, but SLOC bought me a voucher for Christmas/birthday, so I could indulge without feeling "guilty" about spending the money on it :D And I bought tickets to the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie for my sister's ...

We went over our download / upload limit this month for probably the first time ever , and have had to put up with slow Internet that periodically drops out for the last week, and there's still another week to go before the next cycle starts & it goes back to "normal". It's especially annoying when ...

I was really surprised - and a bit disappointed - to find out it was on Ch7 rather than the ABC. Its a natural fit for the ABC Sunday night, I would have thought.

I read in the Green Guide (the Age's TV Guide)today that it's supposed to be starting on 29 May. Just have to hope that Channel 7 will stick with it for the whole series - I'm very much looking forward to seeing it!

Availablity is a big problem for me & SLOC. YThere's a lot of stuff published that we could order from OS as a paper-book, but can't get as an eBook cos the "whatevers" haven't been cleared for here. (By "whatevers" I mean the rights or other associated matters). Case in point: both of us want to re...

I was trying to work out what our one was today - because we have the magnifying glass, I couldn't work out how to click on it to get the description of it. I said ti SLOC that I'd hop on here cos I know that SM is always up to date with them, and there'd be an explanation for it. I love looking at ...

I'm up to 708 books on LibraryThing (i had a productive Easter weekend cataloging, sseing as I only joined last week), and am just reaching "G" in the main library. So my estimation of 2.5 thousand in the house may be slightly unambitious (that's not the right word, but I can't tgink if what it shou...

We're planning on watching the episode of Pillars of the Earth that was on last night, I figure that I can watch the news tomorrow night & get the highlights. I'm interested to see what her dress is like, but apart from that, not really all that interested in the whole shebang. And that pizzas just ...

I'm in the middle (okay, the start ;) ) of cataloging my books, I've done the 2 bookcases in the small room, and have hit 400+ books so far. So given that, I would guesstimate that i've got about another 2-2.5 thousand in the house to get through. I then have a storage unit whihc has at least two la...
