All together now, kids: "WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?"
NewsTechnica: Charity pays Tories not to breed; Pentagon: Wikileaks "has blood on its hands, unlike us"; Minister condemns Satanist fire fighters for causing credit crunch; Journalist pretending to be non-despicable decent human thrown under train; Time traveller spotted in 2010 YouTube video; Newspaper website "troll" punished.
Cryoburn is the latest Vorkosigan fluff and it's middling at best. Worst of the series. Reads like author-written fanfic. Particularly the drabbles. (Let's make the first two chapters exposition! Let's chuck random past characters at the plot as dei ex machina! Let's put some drabbles at the end! I'm almost surprised there weren't AU bonus chapters.)
Edit: "And I just started A Civil Campaign. I'm remembering A Civil Campaign now. Should I finish it again or take a needle-grenade to the chest? What's the better option?" — Peter da Silva
arkady is now the mother of a technical adult, which all agree is a frightening thought. Mother and daughter now have matching Dell Mini 10s.
Freda is 3 and is playing Second Life on Arkady's netbook. Actually controlling the avatar herself. She hasn't had a first one yet! Thursday I joked I was worried about her growing up to be the next Dark Lord; Friday she was hissing like a snake. She likes snakes.
