Monday Morning Rambling for Feb. 11, 2008

I tried to find a lol cat for this morning, but none of them seemed worthy of the way I feel. Maybe because I feel like week old cat food, but I digress.

I have another humorous story involving one of those small, amusing people living in my house. Yes, I am once more gushing about my kids. This time it is the eldest son. The other night, Mr. and Mrs. Smith was on the television, and my boy was watching it, while me and the beloved wife were in the kitchen talking about something. Well, the movie got to the point where Brad and Angelina were about to start fighting throughout the house.

My son bounds into the living room, quite excited about the impending action (this is not the first time that he's seen this particular scene), and begins to tell us that the characters on the television were about to start arguing and shooting at each other.

His explanation for this behavior: the husband forgot to wash the dishes.

One must love children.

Anyways, if you're one of those who pays close attention, you'll notice that I missed my Friday rambling post, and there was a distinct lack of episodic blogging over the weekend. Ultimately there were two culprits responsible for this lack, the first was work, while the second was this cold that I'm still battling.

So that means that I've got a bit of a backlog in the anime viewing department, as I was too sick to even sit at the PC and watch my cartoons. A sad state of affairs to be certain, though one which allowed my beloved wife to realize just how miserable I was.

Luckily, through the power of LOVE (yes, my wife is a Mahō Shōjo) I've started to feel somewhat like a normal human being again. Just somewhat though.

Anyways, due to my untimely illness, just about everything got dumped on the floor. If I had been juggling eggs, let's just say my cats would be extremely protein happy at the moment.

Book reviews are still coming, Jumper is getting released soon, there's talk of a new Star Wars fan site on the horizon, and finally this upcoming Sunday we get the new Knight Rider movie. In this incarnation KITT is going to be a Mustang voiced by Val Kilmer.

I'm almost scared, as some things should never be brought back. After all, isn't that what the Stephen King short story/movie is telling us?

The final bit of interesting flotsam from my brain today is that Cory Doctorow over at Boing-Boing is telling us that Neil Gaimon is getting ready to give away one of his books for free as an experiment to see if it will boost sales.

I'm always up for free fiction, and I believe that it'll boost his sales. After all, I would have never read any of Doctorow's or Scalzi's work were it not for their free offerings.
