Is anyone else watching this? We're up to 2.2 and loving it.

I do like "The True Game" by Sheri S Tepper. And I wanted badly to look at tonight, because I have some thoughts that won't come out about connection and power sharing. But of course, all my books are now at Glenbrook. In boxes, or on the four bookshelves we bought from friends to house our overabundant collection. Also missing the Thesaurus, which I wanted to use for the same reason.

We've moved 5 carloads in 3 trips. Apart from some kitchen/bathroom requirements, it's all been books and comics. I can feel my shoulder and leg muscles ache a little; this is good, because it means I've been active, and the sense of progression is there. But we still need to move a lot of small stuff before either of us will be happy about letting the movers in to take the furniture.

We like our new house a lot. There's a lot of work to do on it but I figure, because neither of us is fussy about internal decorating, that we can live with the inside as it is and fix things up as we go along.

I actually got some work done today, hooray! No 11& 3/4th hour requests for things that don't really matter or would be better done by Someone Else. Maybe I'll stay around for a bit (my career aims at the moment swing from one extreme to another - I'll probably be in "walk out and tell them to screw themselves" mode again next week). I also got told that the guy I'm relieving won't be back for another month. They aren't paying me HGD because the positions are all interim/new and haven't been properly graded yet. I guess the experience will be useful somewhere.

Visited andre-norton.org for the first time since her death. Publishing books since 1934! It's unfortunate that most of the obituaries have focused on the Witchworld titles, as in my mind these weren't half as good as her young adult science fiction which I read as a *g* young adult. Favourites:
- Catseye
- Judgement on Janus
- Dread Companion
- The Beast Master & Lord of Thunder

I hope that someday, someone will make a movie that will do justice to the Beastmaster stories. But Beastmaster's Ark isn't as good IMHO. Not as pacy or immediate as the first 2. I didn't mind Tani, but she felt like a character manufactured purely in the interests of the 'two by two' theme. Too neat a fit with Storm. Too much the rebellious child/love interest.
