Current reading (er, listening... I listen to audiobooks whenever I'm in the car--it's hard to have road rage when your imagination is engaged--and a lot of the time I'm knitting):
  • Pratchett, Terry. Going Postal.
    • Just finished it. It's brilliant and hilarious. It was my first Discworld novel, and was a good introduction to the goings-on of Ankh-Morpork.
  • Pratchett, Terry. Reaper Man.
    • A little slower than Going Postal. Would not the best introduction to the Discworld novels. Even though the pace lags slightly, I can't stop listening to it.
  • Herbert, Brian. Dune.
    • haven't started it yet. I've seen the TV miniseries and have heard that the book is much, much better.
Never fear, the snark and insanity haven't left... they've simply been too busy to sit down and chat. Never fear, they shall return. With teeth. Sharp, pointy teeth of... ah... yes! sharp, pointy teeth of truth, light and justice. I imagine they probably also glow in the dark.

Wow, you got to go to a fiber fest and you are going to Stitches East!!!!! In my dreams. Thanks so much for the comment on my blog. Good thing is shortly following my daughter's wedding we have another we have to be at. So, no time for chit chat. :) Most of 'em don't like me anyways so who gives a flip. :)
