    Well it can slip out so easily in conversation...

    "Fancy the ham or the cheddar?"
    "I'll have the ham: it looks so jolly brobdingnagian!"

    I really enjoyed both of those (but as my eldest son pointed out): the word "tumultuous" turns up ten times too many in WoW.

    Well, I'm reading Watchmen as well. But, its the original graphic novel, as opposed to the new Complete, that I asked for and received for Christmas. Last time, I checked it out of the library. Now, I own one in time for the SFMB read!

    Been reading Watching the Watchmen by Dave Gibbons, the "definitive commentary on the ultimate graphic novel", which I got for Christmas.



    One of the many interesting facts that Gibbons reveals in WTW is that the superduper Absolute Watchmen edition, for which the original comic was recoloured and had some minor art corrections made, is now the basis for the standard paperback edition, so I might just need to invest in a new copy of that (slightly cheaper than selling out for the AW edition, although I hope to do so eventually).

    Let's see since I last checked in Simplicissimus, The Reverse of the Medal, Blackbeard the Pirate a reappraisal of his life and times, The Thirteen Gun Salute, and the Saga of Gisli Surson. That's not very much I fear, but the holidays keep me busy.

    Now reading 'The Broken Sword' which Mike cites as an influence on his work.

    In my day we were too worried about keeping the Consumption under control and stressing over having enough money for dripping for the sandwiches!!

    Amen to that. I can "zone out" to TV if I'm really tired, but I have no interest in computer games.

    Get your damn Wii off my lawn, dammit!!

    Coming to the end of Lost on Venus which has turned out to be great although the first couple of chapters were hard work.
    Master Mind of Mars by the same Mr Burroughs is up next.
