Time Sinks

Thanks to an LJ friend, I spent a whole lot of the last few days read­ing The Law Dog Files. The man really does need to put together a book of his sto­ries, or maybe a few books, because he is hilar­i­ous. I don’t entirely agree with his pol­i­tics, but I don’t entirely dis­agree, either. His sto­ries are more than worth bypass­ing a few things that might oth­er­wise annoy me. I highly rec­om­mend perus­ing the archives any time you’re in need of a laugh.

Thanks to Law Dog, I’ve also been read­ing a bit at The Cor­nered Cat, which is an emi­nently prac­ti­cal site about guns, writ­ten by a woman and includ­ing far more infor­ma­tion about deal­ing with fem­i­nine cloth­ing and con­cealed carry than I’ve ever found before. I’ll be spend­ing more time over there.

I read Night Life by Caitlin Kit­tredge, and am hop­ing that the library will come through with a copy of Pure Blood soon.

Since I don’t have Pure Blood here right now, I went on to Rachel Vincent’s Stray, and went on to Rogue. It’s nice to read about were­cats instead of were­wolves for a change. I am occa­sion­ally annoyed by the main char­ac­ter mak­ing the same mis­takes over and over again, but I haven’t felt it nec­es­sary to toss the books across the house, so it’s bear­able. So far.
