I haven’t read much lately, that isn’t blog stuff – I might see what I’m reading by bookmarking it in Del.icio.us, but that involves a lifestream somewhere….woo.
I’m currently listening to Chasm City (at night, cause my iPhone isn’t playing nice with any of the libraries at the moment – or more accurately, my laptop is off on repairs, and the laptop I’ve borrowed isn’t comfortable talking to Lexicon, our NSD. So it’s only ever at night, when we’re falling asleep – but Chasm City, by Alistair Reynolds is about my favorite sci fi book of all time.
I’m also currently (slowly) playing my way through Beatles Rockband – which, I’m really annoyed about too – gorgeous backgrounds which you cannot watch unless you’re singing (and know the song backwards). Maybe it’s just me but if I get distracted by the video I’m just blown away.
Music wise, I’m on angry rock and borderline punk – Foo Fighters (Pretender – from Patience, Echos and Grace), Placebo’s cover of Running up that Hill (because I’ve been really -REALLY let down by people I thought I could rely on lately), Good Charlotte’s ‘The River’. Pluss some Gorillaz, My Sharona, Tribute (Tenacious D), and some other tracks via Rockband.
And finally, I started making a scarf this week – because I think I really need to take time out to just be me – and away from my writing. So I’m making a pattern called ‘Tudor Grace‘ with some of my 2 ply lace wool that I picked up at the Ravelry event in Coventry at the beginning of last Summer. Photos will follow.
