It occurs to me that yesterday I had intended to respond to some things that some other people said, but then I forgot. So here goes… I just have to track down what they were…..
Oooo, here’s one –was talking about Diane Duane the other day. And at the time I had that feeling that the name was nigglingly familiar, but it wasn’t til Rowan mentioned that she’d written Star Trek novels that I realised where…. I have a whole stack of Trek novels somewhere, from when I was even more into TNG than I am BtVS now. Heh. I wonder where they went to. Rowan also mentioned Diana Wynne Jones, who was recently held up on the BetterBuffyFics list as being a superior author to J K Rowling. Now, I can’t judge that, cos I haven’t read the Harry Potter books yet (I will, just give me time), but I do love Diana Wynne Jones… I first read one of her books when I was in my mid-teens, I think, and I don’t remember why or how I found it, because by then I never went into the ‘childrens/teens’ part of the library. But somehow I picked the book up, and I was entralled and promptly made it my mission to track down some of her other books. They’re still prominent on my bookshelf now.
The ‘white’ bit of the nail on my left hand little finger is now longer than the ‘pink’ bit, and appears to be still going strong. Makes typing slightly awkward, though.
