At long last

You know what I could really do with? Better time management. 

I had actually meant to update this way way way back in October, but couldn't find the time anywhere. Now I've finally got a break in. 

This year has started rather slowly, since the Powers that Be forgot that there's a librarything in January (it's usually when the big game of Risk happens). Personally I blame the lack of a Halloweenthing in October. Without that there was no way to conduct the traditional Hallow's Eve ritual sacrifice to the Ancient Gods, and now we are without their protection (well you all are anyway - I managed to snag an unsuspecting trick-or-treater who happened to be a firstborn child, and sold them off to the Shide to guarantee no bad blood). At least the Wild Hunt hasn't shown up... yet... 

And I've gotten around to actually reading something! The Broken Sword by Poul Anderson. 'Tis an epic tale of Elves and Trolls and Viking-age mythology. If you like Fantasy works then definitely read it. Read it now! 

The next librarything will be on the 12th of March, if my calculations are correct. The last one was about covering trees with poppies, and then got hijacked by a card game, so I cannot begin to fathom what March's one will be like. There'll probably be sugar of some kind though.... 

And then there was this other thing. A while ago I came across this strange and somewhat disturbing document written by my late colleague, a bizarre stream of gibberish frantically typed out regarding something about shades and not being able to be stopped. I had intended to mention it earlier, but again like I said I couldn't find the time anywhere. Odd how I suddenly just remember it now, a couple of days after the 14th of February - 

Wait, what's that, out in the distance? Oh my gods..... how can it..... that's impossible! No! That can't be! Gods, the horror! The horror!! THE HOR-
