I have been quiet recently, mainly cos my Dad has been visiting and I've been spending time with him rather than online. It's been fun, with some really summery weather.

The main notable things I have done this week are: I attended a lecture by a guy who was wearing a kippah (and a very unconvincing mid-Omer beard) and broke off from his actual topic to clarify the difference between sex and gender. And today I ate lots of icecream at RS' farewell party.

What I haven't done is catching up with my huge backlog of LJ posts from before Pesach, nor have I processed all the photos I want to put online. Right now I'm feeling a little anhedonic, and knowing that it's just hormones doesn't do much to break the mood.

Oh, and I'm back on the eMusic bandwagon. Anyone want to recommend me any music that you're excited about right now? Also, if anyone's thinking of joining, let me know because if I refer you we both get 50 free tracks.

As a hold pattern until I have the motivation for a real post, here's that


FTR, Apollonious started out as a whippet. I am not a dog person normally, but anyway, I'm intrigued to see what it ends up as when it fixes. (Does it tell everyone they're modest?)

He started as a mouse, and morphed into a hare after I answered the questions.

So far, modesty abounds in the daemon world. At least it doesn't say that you're humble, though. :-) Humble seems to be a common trait as well.

Your P'tite soeur has Aeschylus the Chimpanzee hahahaha. Is 'The Golden Compass' the first in the Philip Pullman trilogy? I read 'The Subtle Knife' and thought it was the worst book I've ever had the misfortune to read, one of the reasons I find it so funny that my daemon is a chimpanzee (sorry if I've offended all you science fiction geeks).

The fact that your daemon got the name Aeschylus is possibly nearly as funny as getting a chimpanzee!

The golden compass is the American title for Northern lights, which is the first in the trilogy; no idea why they changed it! I hated the books too, but I don't think they're bad. Technically the writing is very good, but the books as a whole are just horrible, though.

Oops, I notice you'd already answered the question. :) I figure changing the title was probably another instance of "Oh, those stupid Americans, they won't have heard of X." :(

Equally funny is that I got a daemon named Erasmus! (Did you know he actually had a connection with my college at Oxford?)

The Golden Compass is the first book, but only the American title — in England, it was Northern Lights.

Why don't you make a blog? :P

A whippet would be a very bad choice for someone rejoining eMusic. :o)
