ZOMG! I'll never learn, will I?

Never, never, never pick up a book near bed time. Finally going to sleep after 2:30 does not make for a nice wakey-wakey. The fact that I didn't get in a wreck has more to do with no surprises then my reflexes this morning.


On the other hand, I am sure Anne McCaffery is off in the deep end (or her son is). Regardless of telepathic, teleporting, fire-breathing dragons, adding the healing power of crystal vibrations just totally broke it for me. Telling the story of minor characters from a previous story, in the same approximate time frame is still pretty cool, however. The fact that two of her characters really, really should have been quite dead under the circumstances goes over in the 'negative' column, while the fact that the book held me until I finished it goes in the 'positive'. So, I guess it was a wash: read the new Pern book if you want, or not, as you wish. She still can make villans I just want to wipe the floor with, however.

Thanks to the goodness that is Dr. Pepper (used sparingly) I am actually functional. I suspect I will need another dose come lunchtime.

(I guess I am making up for all the posts I haven't been making recently).


How can people get away with calling something without butter or cream 'Alfredo sauce'? Heck, the most savory part of this was the (real! I think) grated Parmesian cheese. I mean, I ate it - it's wasn't *bad* per say, but it sure as hell didn't taste anything like Alfedo.


And, if you insist on having a 'health conscious' line of food, why the hell would you put FETACINI ALFREDO on it? Once you take out all the 'bad' stuff, all you really have left is... pepper.
