To borrow a quote, it's been a bad year for dictators, and it kind of makes you wonder who's next. Or what else is going to go in the world, since international politics seems to have become rather unpredictable these days.
It's also meant my Twitter feed has been full of terrible yet amusing jokes. Or other links. I know I shouldn't have found this video nearly as entertaining as I did.
I just hope it doesn't cause much trouble in the area - yinake, you let me know if things start getting crazy, okay?
Anyway, more personally my Christmas shopping is done. Now I just need to wrap things
My shopping jaunt also led me to discover that a certain second hand book store was halving a closing down everything half price sale, which is always cheering. Especially since they had a couple of books I wanted.
There was also this amazing Strawberry cake I had from Brunettis. And then at dinner someone went and screwed up my order and I ended up waiting about an hour for all my food to come. And this was not at some fancy restaurant. On the plus side, they gave me free slice to make up for it.
Your nifty thing of the day goes out to the couple of Leviathan series fans I know I have reading, who I strongely recommend should check out Scott Westerfeld's newest blog post for this bonus Christmas story and art. Contains spoilers for the end of Goliath, and crossdressing - not the kind you'd expect from the series, either.
