“Underwear, a toothbrush, and Van Halen CD. I can use all these things!”


I had a good time in Denver.  I do much better on physical pinball tables than video game versions.  They manipulate physics and add obnoxious distractions to the virtual games.  It’s still fun, though.  I forgot about how earning a free ball sounds like a popgun fire, and the resultant anxiety seemed to help.  I have doof reflexes, which when pressure is applied are like those of ninjas.  💪🏽

I finished reading After On by Rob Reid.  It’s as if the novel was written for me specifically.  I loved it so much I should totally marry it.  It’s five days until the new John Scalzi novel releases.  I thought this book would tide me over until then, but it was so good I couldn’t pace myself.  I spent most of my mini-vacation reading it.

After On by Rob Reid

It’s the first I’ve read by this author, but he’s now on my auto-buy list.  (So much for Patrick Rothfuss being the only one to achieve that status immediately.)  I’m considering rereading it, right away.  (That’s a good sign for any author.)  While I was looking for After On, I read a few reviews on Artemis by Andy Weir.  Some were profoundly disappointing and loudly reflected the readers’ tolerance issues.  He made the protagonist a Republicans worst fear.  Enough said.

From now on, people who don’t enjoy Artemis are not allowed to read anything by Neal Stephenson.  You’re not ready, (and that’s sad.)  I haven’t practiced my drums in days.  It feels peculiar, so I’m off to beat them with sticks.
