I am about to miss the deadline for finishing my corrections in time to graduate this summer, but I can't find it in my heart to be down about this. I randomly borrowed London Calling and the D'Oyly Carte Patience from the library yesterday, and listening to them has been making me happy. And I decided I really wasn't going to work flat out on the corrections in order to finish them today, so instead I went to sit outside in the sunshine and read The whim of the dragon, which is the kind of book that makes me grin and grin and grin. Thank you for such a lovely present, rysmiel!

General life stuff is going well for me. I have fixed a date to move to Cambridge (22 June, if you're particularly interested in my movements), and all the logistical annoying stuff is falling into place very nicely. And having a date means I'm going to stop drifting and get on with stuff; I'm afraid that I rather need to be obliged to. I've been invited to a youth interfaith conference at the weekend which is going to be absolutely gorgeous.

I saw something which led me to think I'd inadvertently caused someone horrible offence. But we talked about it and she reassured me that it wasn't my fault. Communication is such a good thing.

Also, my little brother the Thuggish Poet turns 23 today. Happy birthday to him.

The Whim of the Dragon, which is the kind of book that makes me grin and grin and grin. Thank you for such a lovely present, rysmiel!

You're very welcome, and do say so to pameladean at some point, she'll appreciate it. I'm really looking forward to your review of that, and particularly what you think of the end.

If you think it would be apt, do please pass on my happy birthday wishes to your brother.

Eek, I do know she exists and that she knows people I know, but I'm way too embarrassed to go and tell her I've been reading her books. The combination of my saying critical things particularly about the way the series is divided up, and my being wildly enthusiastic about some aspects just makes the whole idea extremely cringey. I'm not used to this whole concept of authors being real people that you can actually interact with. (On balance I'm kind of glad that I read The King's Peace just before I started my journal, and then the comment monster ate the stuff I said about it in comments to my review of Mists of Avalon.)

I'm really looking forward to your review of that
Should be soon, it's fast reading. I guess you could just happen to bring the review to pameladean's attention, but probably even that would make me impossibly self-conscious.
