Yule wish list, 2014

The whole damned Amazon wish list is too long, so I've shortened it to some books I've been particularly craving lately. A few of you are entrusted with my wish list, so if you want a longer list you can feel free to check it out. ;)

Private message via LJ if you don't have my address.

If everything here is too expensive for you (and remember used is okay . . .), bug me via email and I'll send you a list of small paperbacks that should be in your range. Same rules as always -- don't give unless you wish to, used paperbacks in good condition are NOT insulting gifts, meatspace address available on request.

Let me show you my entitlement issues )

Feeling distinctly better today

Everything is not turning to crap, my appointment with the pain specialist went as well as might be expected, I actually got into WoW . . . and I've reached a very interesting portion of the book I'm reading, The Horse, The Wheel, and Language. If you know who Marija Gimbutas was and her ideas about the spread of Proto-Indo-European languages, you'll know what "Old Europe" means -- and in this part, David Anthony is describing the evidence of its collapse and destruction.

It's already contradicted what I thought I knew about the domestication of the horse. It's also damned fascinating reading, at least for me.

Still taking it really easy at present, when I'm not getting frustrated by the queues on WoW.

Today is officially a dead loss

Everything whatsoever that I do is a fuckup.

I'm going to bed early.

Touchdown!

Was just watching the live feed for the Rosetta comet landing.

However, the live-updating XKCD report is much more amusing.

Isn't science keen? :)
