I swear I'm turning into my grandmother
Suddenly unfamiliar classical music is better to work to than unfamiliar rock music. What the glitter-bespangled fuck?

(Don't mind me. It's definitely been an "outlive the bastards" kind of day.)

Current Mood: bemused
Current Music: 1. Allegro maestoso - Paganini - The 6 Violin Concertos - "Concerto No. 4 in D-minor"

And now I'm having one. Many thanks for the phrase, which I just stole!

My icon comes from Lois Bujold's Vorkosigan series, which, if you haven't read... come on, woman, do you NEED an excuse to put your feet up and read good science fiction? :-)

I started in on that a while back, and oddly enough it didn't really appeal. So many other people loved it. Odd.

Well, the beginning of the series were also the first novels that she wrote. By the time you get to Mirror Dance and Memory, though, they're as good as anything that's ever been done in the field.

You might or might not like Curse of Chalion, but it's also quite good (I give her extra points for inventing a different religion that is not just thinly disguised Wicca.) The setting is fantasy, but sort of feudal Spanish-flavored, much like Guy Gavriel Kay, only Bujold is more about the characters than about reimagining historical events.

Unfamiliar classical music is my second-favorite thing to work to. (My first is silence.)

(Don't mind me. It's definitely been an "outlive the bastards" kind of day.)

I've been having one of those too, which is a rare thing for me.
