Slept in today

My body told me "Fuck you, I'm sleep deprived, and you're going down for a good long time."

So I slept for about 12 hours.  Feel much better.  It's amazing what you can do when you're not constantly dozing off.

Went for a walk to the store instead of driving, for instance.  Nice.  It's still in LA, and we had to dodge the bums and their piss-soaked areas, and the gang graffiti, and the crazy drivers.  But still, it was nice.  Especially since it's not hotter than Satan's jockstrap here yet.

Yeah, I know...

Blogging has sucked lately.  I've been damn busy, folks.  And the few scraps of time I have where I'm not doing something, I've just wanted to crawl into a hole and pull it in after me.

Sorry.

I would like to thank

All the women who continue to wear skin tight yoga pants while traveling via airplane, for keeping me entertained through multiple airports by showing me all the same views they wouldn't dare show people back home.

Seriously, folks.  I can check out your pubic hair style.

I especially want to thank the woman wearing white spandex in the San Francisco airport who gave me a perfect shot of her vulva as she was going down the escalator while I was going up.  Nothing makes a traveling man happier than viewing labia.

So the Hugo Nominations are out

And the predictable crowd is predictably losing their collective shit.  A few recaps here and here.  But those are by no means the only shit being lost by the Leftists who until this year had a death grip on the Hugos and were strangling the life out of them.

I long since stopped using the Hugo Award as a reason to buy a book.  In fact, I would consciously avoid books with the Hugo, because by and large they just weren't very good.  It wasn't until I started reading the blogs of other writers that I found out why - they had been taken over by the gatekeepers of the Left, and like all things Leftist controlled, had been put to task pushing their message rather than their primary function, which was rewarding the best writers.

Leftist agitprop disguised as Science Fiction isn't very good.  It never will be.

So I'm quite pleased to see the writers that are on this year's ballot.  While I've already purchased many of the books that were nominated, if one of them I don't own wins the Hugo I may actually purchase another Hugo Award-winning book again!
