This is why we can't have nice things

So, it's my understanding that reliable spoilers are online, if not the entire book (which may be--I've heard it's out there, but I haven't seen it yet). Even ohnotheydidnt is telling people to stay away for the week if they don't want to be spoiled. So basically, my internet usage is going to be a good bit curtailed; I'm not reading anything on Livejournal or (and this is killing me) JournalFen this week. I'll read the Yahoo headlines and new entries/articles from reliable, non-asshole sites on Google Reader, but that's about it. (The thing about Google Reader is that you can read individual LJ feeds that you've subscribed to stripped of all icons and user comments, which is where casual rogue spoilers are generally going to come from. I mean, as opposed to people just bombing ONTD with entries titled GRAWP KILLS FIRENZE, PAGE 606, TTLY TRUE, against which you're going to be pretty defenseless. Give it a try; it works through your Gmail account.)

Anyway, what I mean to say is, I may not be around much this week. I mean, who knows, I might; but I'm pretty much expecting any and all acts of asshaberdashery, and I would not put it past anyone to swing by here and drop a spoiler bomb. You'll be safe reading anything I write, but I can't guarantee the safety of the comment section. I also can't guarantee the safety of anything I link to, because chances are I haven't vetted it thoroughly for fear of spoiling myself. Consider yourself warned, is all I'm saying. I will, however, note the source on any Harry Potter links, and you can judge for yourself if you trust that site in general not to spoil you. Caveat: do not read user comments of anything ANYWHERE. I'm not even going to go into how bad I'm going to hurt ban anyone who comes in here on purpose to spoil me, because that's just waving a red flag in front of the bull, IMO.

Meanwhile, our oven blew up, and I have no idea when we'll be able to get Oven People to come out and install a replacement. It's been that kind of weekend.
