It's go time, bitches

Today's Horoscope of Irony: Forget about work -- it's time to play. Of course, there are some responsibilities that you probably can't get out of, but there's no reason you can't have fun while you go about your everyday life. Make a game out of a chore, or listen to your favorite music while you clean the house or wash your car. Life is too short to be miserable, and if you really think about it, you have very little to be upset about right now! Make every minute count and don't forget to laugh and smile.



Am working on book. Fighting "Lord of the Rings in Fifteen Minutes" and losing. (Preliminary art for the book cover listing the ten movies: "Lord of the Rings [all three, and probably in more than fifteen minutes]".) If I can't finish off this whole albatross by tonight, I'm moving on and coming back to it. Also, I've turned off email alerts for comments on this entry, but I'll be around when I take breaks. If you're not hearing from me, that means things are going well.



Two reader requests: invidereliana and her mom Christina are trying to find Super Dollfie dolls, which apparently are only available in Japan. They're looking at buying some of the dolls so that Christina, who is a great seamstress, can make doll clothes to sell on eBay and so on. Anyone got any advice on how to get hold of the dolls? (I suggested Genes or Tylers instead, myself.)

And from katcat: "I need help. I have a tutorial (lit) that I'm taking next term based in American literature. I'm trying to come up with a book list and I was wondering if maybe you could post asking people to recommend some American lit? Ideally more of the classics but contemp stuff is cool too. No Mark Twain or Hemingway. I just really would like to hear some opinions on stuff to read (outside of stuff I can think of) and I thought you'd be the best person to beg. If you could, I'd really, really appreciate it."
