Wait! I just remembered that Vinge's The Snow Queen is based on Hans Christian Andersen's novella, The Snow Queen, which I *haven't* read. So I guess, now to read that... :)
The Summer Queen, the third in the series, took me an entire year to read. It's large, very dense, and sometimes emotionally difficult to go through, but it's also just a really large book... if it were the size of most paperbacks, I think it would be about 1200-1500 pages (the text is small and the pages large). But most especially it took me a long time because this year was so busy. Worth it though!
The last book in the series I finished in *two days*! What a contrast.
I finished Tangled Up in Blue, which is the last of Vinge's Snow Queen series. It was a prequel, which was interesting. Kind of surprising to see some of these characters again, *before* everything that happened in the other books...
Anyway, I really recommend that series. I'm kind of sad I'm done with it.
Having a lazy day today. Reading the last book in the Snow Queen series. Maybe I'll do some more Little MLer or Seasoned Schemer later tonight.

Brother's wedding today was a delight; I was the best man.
I gave a speech about analyzing life through games, and it was really well received. Maybe if the bride and groom feel it wouldn't diminish the talk I'll post it to my blog or something.
Now to relax.
@maiki I agree with the article! I think clever delegitimization of nazis is super great. I was only saying that I think we should be careful to recognize that they are a legitimate *threat* if not taken care of... and I agree this is a good way to take care of it. Anyway I think I see what you meant then.
It can be hard still to communicate these things over microblags, even when we have > 140 chars as we do here :)
Looks like the source of the problem is maybe mod_display.js being wrapped in <script> tags, which isn't js? Dev console says:
SyntaxError: expected expression, got '<'
everything happens so much Show more
- Bannon is out and I'm feeling relieved
- We had to put down one of our pet rats and I'm feeling depressed
- Rehearsal in a few hours for my brother's wedding tomorrow (I'm the best man) to which I'm feeling joyful
Lots of emotions...
