And would it be okay for a church book club?

Everything Else / Happy Birthday Ookla!

(Is this where this goes?)

We wish you a happy birthday
We wish you a happy birthday
We wish you a happy birthday
And a happy birthday

We wish you a happy merry
Merry merry, a happy birthday
We wish you a Christmas birthday
And a New Year's birthmus

Good tidings to you, and all of your flesh
We wish you some figgy pudding, and a nice Halloween
We wish you a merry birthmus, and a Christmas New Year!


Books / Help recommend some books for my 12-year-old nephew
« on: January 31, 2008, 10:30:30 PM »
Nephew is turning 12 in Feb and is asking for books.  His mom just emailed us asking for suggestions.  He likes fantasy/SF but reads other things too.  He likes series, and would prefer something that's already finished so he doesn't have to wait for the next book.   His mom mentioned that he enjoyed our other recommendations, but the only thing I can remember suggesting before is Diana Wynne Jones's Chrestomanci books.

Since this is his mom asking, it should probably be stuff without any direct references to sex.

Brandon Sanderson / Will the mind-boggling never cease?

I just now found out that Brandon and Ken Jennings were roommates at BYU.  How did I miss this particular bit of information?   :o 

Brandon Sanderson / Stegosaurus named George

Brandon, have you, by chance, read The Shy Stegosaurus of Cricket Creek

I was amused by the misspelled pterodactyl.

I was hoping we could go see Brandon in Lakewood (WA) next Saturday.  Ah well.  Maybe I can talk my husband into going up to Seattle the night before that.

Brandon Sanderson / Just finished Mistborn

I enjoyed it a lot!  (I thought that bit about "Ahlstrom square" was completely unrealistic, though   :P )  Got a question--where do the mistcloaks come from?  Do people make their own?  When Kelsier gave Vin her cloak I kind of expected him to say something about who had made it. 

I also have an urge to ask how there can be fruits and vegetables with no flowers. 

And I feel compelled to work "maladroitly" into casual conversation.

Everything Else / origin of "When come back, bring pie"?

I'm trying to track this down and google is surprisingly unhelpful.  I was hoping someone here might know!

Books / See what amazing self-control we have

My husband and I went to Costco with a friend who bears the magic card of admittance.  While there we picked up The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, and we are not opening them.  Nope, going to wait until Christmas.  Not opening them, even though they are sitting...right...there...


Music / Moosebutter

(I did a search and nothing came up, so I'll apologize if this has been mentioned before.)

Check out Harry Potter (the faux British version is good for a laugh, too.  Well, maybe just a giggle.  Or a snicker.)  and the Star Wars song.
