Wow. My Government questioned my literacy today. Like seriously I'm in Grade 10, you'd think I'd know how to read. Nop. Therefore 31/2 hour long standardized test.

No worries, Havoc. We are FAWTLies and we can handle multiple conversations at once.

Finally finished The Dark Defiles by Richard K. Morgan. What a weak ending for such a great trilogy! It was maybe 100 pages too long, and instead of finishing strongly, left a bunch of loose threads dangling.

I'm now reading M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman, but I think I've read most of the stories in it already.

I was waiting for you to finish. I agree completely about the ending.

Spoiler:
So do you think it is post-apocalyptic Earth? A history of genetic engineering, various artifacts left behind made out of plastic, etc?

Add to that legal gay marriage sweeping the U.S. and the legalization of pot in a few states I'm having to blink a few times as I look around, when did the world outside my door start getting fun?!

I'm loving being able to get married if I want to(i.e. If I ever meet someone). It's great not feeling like a second-class citizen anymore.

It's so much pressure! Everyone wants to know when I'm going to "put a ring on it." This stuff is intimidating!

In seriousness, though, I am with you here. With my ex, legal marriage in my state was never an option. It is interesting that when I started seeing my current boyfriend (2012), same sex marriage was already legal here in NY. It means we can get married if and when the time is right, without consideration to what becomes legal and when. It feels very... Normal.

Well, as someone too young to be a Gen-X-er, and too old to be a Millenial, I support that distinction.

I'm... not sure how that can be.

Baby Boomers: 1940s & 50s
Gen X: 60s & 70s
Millennials: 80s & 90s

I can understand feeling like you don't quite fit into one group or another based on their overall characteristics (I'm on the cusp, and while I have way more in common with the millennials than the Gen Xers, I'm Gen Xish in a few regards), but there's not really any chronological gap between them. If anything, based on different estimates, they overlap at the edges.

The chronology may be clear (although even upthread it was mentioned that Millenial could be either 1980-2000 or 1985-2005, meaning that the generation of people like me born between 1980 and 1985 is not a consensus), but I think many people on a generational cusp may struggle to identify with the generation on either side based on culture. Generations are assigned certain characteristics, and are assumed to have certain shared coming-of-age experiences that we "cuspers" may not identify with. Hence the feeling of not fitting in.

To whit:

As a Millenial, I was supposed to have grown up with ubiquitous information-based technology. Yet, I didn't have an email address until I was 18, and I got my first cell phone when I was in my 20s.

As a Millenial, I was supposed to have graduated college in a terrible economy with no job opportunities. On the contrary, I graduated in 2003 and jobs were plentiful. I was well-established in my career when the recession hit.

Etc. etc.

I am reading Stalking Darkness, book 2 of the Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling. I am having a lot of fun with this series. And while it's pretty light reading (for me, coming off all the pretentious shiznit I read), the writing is pretty decent. Some fantasy novels I have to put down because I just can't stomach the prose. These books are reasonably well-written.

Update: I just breezed through the last 200 pages because I couldn't put it down. That is always a good sign.

It's a Puccini kind of day. Now I want to learn Italian.

Gotta love WQXR.

As someone who loves both the composer and the language, Puccini is a good reason to learn Italian.

Also, move to NY. I can get WQXR on the radio!

Eh. It's a big state. There's a big difference between Phoenix in summer and Flagstaff in winter. So it depends on where and when :)

I read Drejk's comment as: "like" implies a simile, but who could actually tell the difference between musicians and cats on meth?

By the way, if you are ever looking for a good laugh, Google "Gilbert Gottfried reads Fifty Shades of Grey". You will be glad you did. (Very NSFW, though.)

I did, and I am. NSFW, but PSFL.

If they could somehow convince Morgan Freeman to read those same passages, my life would be complete.

'Classic' is definitely overstating things, but I didn't think it was that bad, which probably says more about me than the book ;)

Also, I finished Dragon Age: Inquisition and my copy of the Mass Effect trilogy is on its way. I probably won't dive in until the end of the month, since I have two business trips in the next 2 1/2 weeks, and won't be home much on the weekends either.

I made bacon this morning. Then I went to run an errand and when I came home I was struck with a powerful smell of bacon. Life is good.

Far-future fantasy where the moon is now a band of moondust, the drow were good guys from an incorporeal gravity-based space armada, and the AIs are really weird.

I loved those books, but didn't care for the last quarter of that book. I'll be curious to know what you think of the ending.

Well, you are to blame for my 5th and 6th time playing Skyrim. The 5th time had issues because of a bad disk. Level 53 carcter deleted. Having siad that, I am glad that it happened. This playthrough has been fun. I am using a limited fast travel rule. I am only able to fast travel between the capitals nad my house(s) once I get a carrage at them. Make the game a lot longer and more interesting when you have to walk EVERYWHERE. Having said that, the third time up the 5000 steps became VERY boring.

You could make a rule that when you get to Ivarsted you are allowed to fast travel to the top :)

Silver Crusade

Excellent. I can't be too late, but it should be fun. Hopefully the s!+!ty weather holds off.

Mass Effect.

This is a likely candidate. I found that you can get all three games together for a pretty good price. I could binge my way through starting with the first one.

I don't care for the article, but that probably has more to do with the approach than the topics mentioned.

The article is thought-provoking. It glosses over the genuine adversity that many LGBT people face, though. It feels like the author is coming from a relatively privileged environment and expanding it to others. It also seems awfully condescending to straight people.

That said, there are a few interesting points, and I agree that if I had the opportunity to change my orientation, I would not.
