Thanks!  I was thinking I'd read it myself, anyway.

And would it be okay for a church book club?

We recently went to a non-Mormon funeral where food was served.  I would imagine it's pretty common.  (Though my brother-in-law's girlfriend commented, in kind of a stage-whisper, that the Mormons put on a better spread.   ;) )

I am a fan of the serial comma.

Spelling errors happen on early mockups. It will get fixed soon enough.

People should know: Alcatraz's jacket actually looks like this:

(except not worn by a woman).

I feel a sentimental attachment to that jacket.   ;D

The Merchant Princes by Charles Stross. I think I finished book two, The Hidden Family and stopped. Anyone know if anything really exciting happens in books 3 or 4?

Book 3 drags a lot in the middle.  There's a big section where Miriam is imprisoned in her room, and it's about as boring for us as it is for her.  Interesting things do happen in 4, but it's not exactly moving briskly toward a conclusion.  I expect I'll keep reading, though, just to find out what happens.

Though admittedly I don't know if any of the people in the breakaway groups want to still be called Mormons.

Not that I've actually spoken to any of these people in person (as far as I know) but I've been told that they do refer to themselves as Mormon.  At least the Utah Polygamist ones do.  I imagine there are other groups that don't.

Since Skar won the laser tag event at my bachelor party

Didn't you also watch Mary Poppins at your bachelor party?  I told somebody that once and they didn't believe me.

I want to know why they named it Barry.  (Ex-boyfriend, maybe?)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire won the Hugo in 2001.

Why did I not know this?   :o

I find lentils completely incomprehensible.

If this was supposed to be the episode that set the tone for the rest of the season, does that mean the show is going to be all about sex?

With almost all the episodes, I've noticed a stated or implied comparison--"Being a doll is like X" or "X is like being a doll."  Like the suicidal rock star complaining about how her life was not her own and she had to be what everyone else wanted her to be.  Maybe the theme of that episode was "Being a doll is like being a rape victim."

I've enjoyed Asimov's short stories and autobiographical stuff.  I slogged through the first Foundation book and just couldn't go any further after that.
