It's more likely that we just dropped a bomb that cost eight figures to turn big rocks into smaller rocks. I suppose that I'm in the wrong thread though. See you over at the peeves.

I've been meaning to give Sanderson a try one of these days.

Just finished Octavia Butler's Kindred. Really liked it.

Re: Pet Peeves- Vent Here! Let me feel your pain.

I love when I have travel flexibility and can snag a voucher. Even if they had to shell out a couple grand per seat it would've been a ...

Dropped off a print at my preferred framer over the weekend. It'll cost $440 all-in with museum glass. It's expensive because it'll be worth it when it's done.

Lots of gems in this thread but somehow the fact that he specified picture frames brought me the most joy.

Re: Netflix Streaming Finds.

I stumbled upon it not knowing anything about Robertson Davies and by the time I'd finished the trilogy I couldn't figure out how the heck I'd neve...
