Ditto, verbatim! Though for me it's nearly a tie with book III as my fave. Action packed!

I am reading That Book. You know, THAT one. Five hundred pages down; two-hundred sixty to go... It's not literature of the highest order but I'm as hooked as a geeky eleven-year-old.

Sigh. I miss PlaythingOrPet. She'd be here talking about it....

A few days in London... that's gonna be fun, if agonizing-- akin to having just one teensy spoonful of the best bowl of soup you ever tasted. Hard to distinguish between 'touristy' and 'unmissable/classic,' but myself, I'd recommend: - National Gallery - Tate Modern - Shakespeare at the Globe theate...

I signed up over the weekend but haven't joined the league yet. So never fear, the bottom has been established! Maybe I'll do a tiny bit better this year now that I understand that the wildcard doesn't just get you ONE extra trade. :roll:

The new kit options are fun!

I needed a head shot a while ago, and of the ones I took I chose this one because it gives the illusion that I possess a chin. :roll:

Thanks. To me the interest of a face always does lie in its asymmetries; it's a literally a reflection of what's going on in the brain. We're complicated beasts.

She does a cover of Ron Sexsmith's Secret Heart; I think it's one of her better known tracks. Perhaps they are pals. Everyone in Canada knows everyone else, right? :lol:

Sam, I was in the Tulum area in April-- what a place. I think that beach down below the ruins is about the prettiest I've ever seen.

Here's a wee picture of me.

... right. Lets wait until the 15th, when it's official. Yes, that would be Sunday. How come it doesn't affect you? I'm genuinely interested, as I thought this was going to apply to anyone streaming music online, or have I misunderstood what you're doing? As for my meaningful contributions, you are...

On the topic of online radio, as of Sunday webcasters will be charged copyright fees, and they're not insubstantial. Check the story here.
