Yeeeeeeeee! [Nov. 16th, 2004|02:37 am]

[mood |anxiousanxious]

I'm still up at 2:45am, which isn't that common for me.

A few weeks ago I was out at a bookstore with Larry and sarahnade and I picked up a copy of Orson Scott Card's Lost Boys.

Its a book that started out a little strange (it's main character is a Mormon Software Engineer). Got a little strange (most of the characters are pretty disfunctional), and then eventually became downright bizarre and creepy. Reminds me of The Kindom (er, "Riget") in many ways, despite being totally different plots, character sets, and so on.

I just finished it. (I was about 2/3 of the way through at 11pm).

Talk about suspense. Totally different from the Ender series. Chills have been going up and down my spine for the last 2 hours.

Totally recommended. Now I need to figure out if I'm going to be able to sleep.

Half of my new company is comprised of Mormon software engineers. But I guess that's not all that surprising, since Orson's son works for my company too. ;) Does that mean I've met Ender?

I'll take it off my list of books never to read (where, in the past, someone had told me I should put it). Because, hey, you have good taste in things. Except when you don't like X-Files. ;)

I don't have taste in the x flies. Thus proving your original statement that I have good taste :)

(come on, anyone who has seen the x files movie has to agree that it sucks)

Hee hee...

Nah, see, the X-Files movie wasn't bad. It was good in the context of the show. They almost kissed! *sigh*

You know, I almost hugged a guy I had only just met because he reminded me of you. It was weird. (I didn't. Luckily, or it would have been even weirder... :))
