Oh boy, it occurs to me that I never tallied up all the audiobooks to which I spent last year listening.

Neverwhere, Mansfield Park, Murder on the Orient Express, And Then There Were None, The Martian, and Bossypants )

Books: Little Women, Razor's Edge: Star Wars, and Winter's Tale )

HIMYM S4, 4x20-24: The Mosbius Designs, The Three Days Rule, Right Place Right Time, As Fast As She Can, and The Leap )

General Thoughts About Season Four: In the season finale, Ted considers the past: "That was the year I was left at the altar, it was the year I got knocked out by a crazy bartender, the year I got fired, the year I got beat up by a goat, a girl goat at that, and damn it if it wasn't one of the best years of my life." So too with this season, which I remembered as the glorious zenith of the series -- a memory which this rewatch bears out. (But now begins the descent.)

Dear Internet:

It looks as if it's going to be a pretty bleak month for me. Please recommend books/movies/fuzzy-animal-sites that you use for comfort when the wind is cold and the times are bad.


A Reading Diary, The Grandmother's Tale, and Fragile Things )

And now for stuff that's been sitting on my computer. (I prefer to think of it as lolling in beach chairs, sipping digital daiquiris and squinting at me in drunken amusement.)

More Pictures of Berlin! )

More Books I Have Read! )

And my little sister has discovered that you can buy Final Fantasy music on iTunes. Here's the fruits of her labor:
The Black Mages, "Vamo'Alla Flamenco" (Final Fantasy IX)
(although, for the full effect, you need an 11-year-old squealing next to you because she has played Final Fantasy IX three hundred times and knows all the incidental background music by heart.)
