Monday Morning Rambling for November 19th

Why do I get the urge to sing Bob Dylan every time I type that title? Oh well. The usual mixed bag of odds an ends for this week. I've finished Death Star and have written and posted a review of it over at TheForce.Net/Books. For those to lazy to follow the link, I'll be posting it here either this afternoon or tomorrow morning. I'm still writing up my review for Noami Novik's His Majesty's Dragon, so expect that sometime in the (hopefully) near future. Final bit of book news is that I'm currently reading Stephen King's take on the zombie story. It's a fun book, and a delicious change of pace after reading Death Star.

Anime news is that we're smacked dab in mid season. I don't like doing episode-by-episode reviews, because well, I'm lazy and there are other, better blogs about that. Instead, I'm waiting for the series to finish before I begin my reviews for them. That said, expect a review for Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo! sometime soon.

All that aside, I am happy to report that Venus vs. Virus has made it onto the Anime Network On Demand channel, with episode 1 sitting in their action stacks. Amazingly enough, the voice acting wasn't utter drivel this time around.

Now that that part is over, I need to tell you a story about my eldest offspring. He determined that he had to dress himself yesterday; which included picking out his own clothes. So, a short bit of time after he entered his room, he emerged wearing a pair of jeans, spider-man sneakers, a long-sleeved white dress shirt which was part of his Christmas outfit last year, plus the black vest and tie to go along with the dress shirt. So having emerged, he wore a bright smile on his face, as he proclaimed, "Look Dad! I'm Han Solo!"

Ah, it's good to be the dad of a geek-in-training.
