What's on the nightstand

"Ender's Shadow"
by Orson Scott Card

Tuesday, 03 February, 2004

This will be a short blog today, but I do have new pictures from London that I will try to work on tonight and post at some point in time. So I'll make a few comments and be on my way:

- Yes, Janet Jackson did it intentionally. Her stunt did what it was supposed to do - created a huge media uproar designed to help spur her upcoming album release and help keep Justin Timberlake's career going, "before we once and for all remember that he really has no talent." (Via Tracy McCue)

- I believe that February 2nd should be the official start of Groundhog Season because I'm really tired of that little rodent having this kind of power in his grubby little paws. Six more weeks of winter is just, well, cruel.

- I owe an apology to Brendan Behan, author of the quote I used on January 29th. My source described him as English, but Keith has kindly corrected me:

I did notice one small thing (in the same blog). I suspect that dear old Brendan Behan will be whirling in his grave at the knowledge that he has been described as English, and Irish Nationalists (as we now more politely describe them) will no doubt be marking you down for some sort of punishment for your flagrant anti-Irish insensitivity.

In your shoes I would either change the original (if that's possible) or take a full-page ad in the next edition of the Noraid magazine (or move permanently to the Galapagos).......

As such, the original has been changed. Although I rather like the idea of moving to Galapagos.

[I don't think they have groundhogs there.]

Quote du jour:

"We have always found the Irish a bit odd. They refuse to be English."

-- Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) English statesman, author
