- Last night I was forced to karaoke. Sober. It was harrowing. I HAD TO SING LADY GAGA. You know, you never realize how absurd the lines "I'll get him hot, show him what I've got" are until you find there are twenty people looking at while you try to sing them. The things I do for my friends. I HOPE A CERTAIN SOMEBODY WHOSE NAME MAY OR MAY NOT BE NANCY APPRECIATES IT.
- ellen_kushner has a post about the progress of the new Bordertown anthology.
Okay. I am trying to breathe. I have never been so excited for a book in my entire life. I know I was born a few years too late to really get on the Bordertown bandwagon, but those stories are still half the reason for anything in my life. They saved me as a teenager. They showed me an entirely new world. More than just Bordertown itself, they showed me a future I could look forward to living. Also the Bordertown anthologies are just SO much fun to read. It needs to be 2011 RIGHT NOW. Luckily Holly Black, who is the other editor for the new Bordertown book (brb convulsions of glee) has her short story collection The Poison Eaters and new novel The White Cat coming out soon.
BASICALLY YAY BOOKS YOU GUYS
- Day 986*: I still don't have a job. Thinking of looking for some sort of waiter job. I've been told that it's not very good money unless you work at a nice restaurant, and you can't get a job at a nice restaurant unless you have previous experience, which I don't. Does anybody have any advice for this sort of thing? Otherwise I'm just going to wander into every restaurant I see and ask if they're hiring.

This book made me remember why I love kids' books so much. It's one of those really solid, fun books that you can come back to over and over. It's about Nita who, while trying to run away from a bully, finds a book in the library called So You Want to Be a Wizard. ( Read more... )
