    I picked up Bernard Cornwell's The Pagan Lord at the library. Historical fiction set in England after the death of Alfred the Great. I'm loving it, especially the between-the-lines wit and sense of timing in Cornwell's writing, and the complete badassery of the protagonist.

    And sort of along those lines, I picked up Final Fantasy Tactics for Playstation again. I remember dropping this game when I was a teenager listening to talks about video game magic. It's a fun game, and I love the turn based strategy style. And I found it for $7! Sweet!

    What about you? What are you reading/listening to/playing? What are you into that you're so happy to have without a cult telling you what you can and can't enjoy?

    We've been watching the whole series of the English show "Would I lie to You" on Youtube. It is so funny, hubby and I really enjoy the English sense of humor. We've also been watching Lee Macks "Not going out" and David Mitchell's "The Peep Show" which is very different.

    I've just read Total Eclipse by Liz Rigbey with my book group and loved it. I then got The Hunting Season by the same author, also very good.

    Just seen Arrival at the cinema. If you like deep, intelligent Sci Fi you'll love it.

    On TV enjoying The Missing and Humans.

    I regularly read about all the shenanigans of the right wing at rightwing.org. When I'm posting here I jump back and forth between that website and this one.

    Just finished John Grisham's "The Whistler". I've read all his books - I think I now know more about the US legal system than our own.
