Geez, that's only the first few chapters. He ages during the process of "character development".
I've been on a kick of watching the Uptown Funk video and have decided to use it as a unit of time. Eating my breakfast bagle takes two Uptown Funks, for example.
I kept wondering who the doopy white guy in the video is and why he's in every shot ruining the thing. Then I realized he's the producer or whatever. Anyway, it's "his" song. Ugh. He should stick to the background -- crowd scenes, etc.
EDIT: So does Bruno Mars really make Sharoth and Drejk want to retire, man?
Still on Neuromancer, but I found one of those top 100 lists that I actually like. If you're looking for a new book to be currently reading (see? topical!), you could do worse than use This List from the Guardian as a guide. I've read (and loved) quite a few and now have some new books like Three Men in a Boat to check out.
Abercrombie fans: Best Served Cold is not in my library's collection, but they have Half a King and Half the World. Are those good books with which to start on Abercrombie?

True, because it's generally gibberish with a few geographic locations and numbers thrown in.
"Argentina was shown the purple band for having eight bounders on a hatch, then Haiti cracked a right jolly amhotep to take the pumpkin 83-nil."
(Also: no, I don't hate you, this is totally the sum of my political discussion here, and feel free to mention your own political leaning (if any), and we'll all feel free have a "I like you!" party!
Ah-ah-ah! In order to keep the peace, FAWTL threads have rules. We may be no-good, lowdown, lowbrow lowlifes, but we do have some standards. To quote our beloved PMG and Mistress Solnes:

I believe "no sports" is thrown in there occasionally, which is essentially the same as "no politics". Newcomers who did not know these rules are hereby forgiven. Go forth and sin no more. That's not religion. Really.
My favorite thing about Denver is being able to leave doors and windows open and not have bugs fly in. And how cool the air is though it's warm in the sun... my two favorite things are no bugs and cool air. And the lovely view of the mountains. My three favorite things are no bugs, cool air, and mountain views and how dry and clean the air is. My four... no, amongst my favorite things are... are such elements as no bugs, cool air...
I'll come in again.

Paging Treppa to PbPs...
But... but... I got the house to clean and it's not done and...
You know what? Nobody else cares how clean or not clean the house is. The pressure to get it done today is solely from me on me. In the meantime, people are waiting for me on pbps. Yeah. Yeah, I'm gonna get a cup of coffee and some potato chips and work on pbps.
School projects done and turned in late on the due date. Taxes done late yesterday. Today is house cleaning day, then tomorrow it's an Ogre visit!
By all the gods, I'm sick for a couple of weeks then horribly busy, and this place goes to the Abyss. Time is flying today and I'm nowhere near finished cleaning.
I was slicing ham preparing to dice it for a quiche (which was delicious) when the block of ham tumbled and the chef's knife cut right through the middle of my ring finger nail. I'm not sure how it's doing. When I took the first bandage off to show people, they said to COVER THAT DAMNED THING UP EW EW EW so I've kept it covered since.
2 projects due Monday for my online front-end web development course. I thought they would be easy. I should not have procrastinated. Sleep, bye-bye.
Finished The Republic of Thieves. I did make the sewing connection before the big reveal, but the story didn't go in the anticipated direction (always nice). Now I need to see if Lynch has more books out. Great stuff!
I also read If I Stay this morning while up with a sick doggie. I only wanted to read it because Chloe Moritz's mom is a friend of a friend so I try to keep up with her work. I didn't see the movie but hope it's better than the book, which was very short and rather simplistic, even for YA. To be honest, YA books sometimes tackle really tough issues and do it very well. This was not one of those times. Pretty dull.
Not sure what to read next. My library's lending ebook section is rather limited.
Welp, Red Seas Under Red Skies and The Republic of Thieves came off the waiting list at the library and are now enthroned in my Adobe Digital Editions reader. Wish I'd noticed sooner because I only have 8 days to read both.
Finished The Blind Assassin. Interesting book; fun book structure. Well written.
Fantastic Maps (nice find, DQ) is jon roberts' site. He's also in the Cartographer's Guild (their website is having gateway errors right now), whose members have a lot of mapmaking experience and provide some tutorials. I can't search for anything on hand-drawn maps because of the current website issues, but there might be something there.
Jon and the other mapmakers are extremely helpful and kind to newbies, though they do appreciate you searching the forums before posting new questions.
It probably is, to be perfectly honest. I think they have decided that most of the population of Europe is descended from Charlemagne. The only thing special is that I managed to find that link. Hook into one little royal line, and you're linked to all of them. In the end, we're all cousins.
I'm sure the guy just slipped as they were inspecting the parapets. Then enemies get hold of the tale and blow it all out of proportion. And take it out of context. Besides, the guy probably deserved it. He had it coming.
I cannot believe I'm trying to justify the actions of a Campbell. In fact, I still can't believe I'm very much a Campbell. It's rather horrifying.

TFY: They had some AWESOME nicknames. The Grey Laird's son was "Black Duncan", probably named for his hair color but also reputed to have had a cold, black heart. He is said to have pushed the builder of his castle off the roof to avoid paying.
Another ancestor is Isabella "The She Wolf" from the Capetian line of French kings.
Oh, right, let's not forget Sir John James 2nd Lord Freuchie, "The Red Baird" Grant.
