"We wondered if he thought a planet full of women could ultimately rebuild society and sustain itself once again. Vaughan was surprisingly optimistic on that front. "Yes, I do think it could. There were a lot of people early on in the first year who complained, "Wow, this is such a misogynistic book to say that, because the men died, the women can't get the electricity running all over the world and the airports up and running again." I think that's an extremely complex, extremely difficult thing to deal with. When three billion people die, I don't care what their sex was, that's an incredibly difficult thing to come back from. I will say that the world would be better off than if it were just the men left. I think that would be an even more dire situation. I think there is hope for the planet."

"I'd read the two BROTHER POWER THE GEEK comics as a small boy, and thought they were seriously weird. Rereading them as an adult they were still seriously weird, and funny, and touched with a sad, strange nostalgia. I'd been reading some Ken Kesey, and somehow the idea of Brother Power as a final remnant of flower power began to possess me. 'At least you didn't bring back Prez,' said my friends, relieved. Little did they know."
--Neil Gaiman, Midnight Days

So each June I sometimes try to post a Bradbury comic or two in his memory. EC did numerous Bradbury adaptations and 'The Lake' is probably the strongest.

Books & fanfic

I am going through one of my phases where I will read paper books but not e-books (even though I love to read both). It gets even more daft when I admit to be on a fic-reading binge on the AO3 - why I can read a fic over an e-book is beyond me.

Current fic obsessions are Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 & BBC Sherlock.

Favourite book this month has been The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu by Joshua Hammer. I put off reading it in May but devoured it this month.

--Describe your most recent POV character’s most embarrassing moment.

Ohhh, we're back to wrestler Sami Zayn, and this is a tough one, because he's an immensely socially awkward person and at the same time he has pretty much zero sense of actual shame about it, so he spends a lot of time going "Okay, that was embarrassing--oh well! Moving on!"

(I am wondering if the match last year where he ended up with an very visible awkward boner while getting murdered with ladders was embarrassing to him. It's not a super-rare happening in wrestling but I gotta think it's not a welcome one...)

I got a fair amount of writing done this week and my Superbat Big Bang goes live in about ten hours, so I am nervous and excited! I hope your week has been both productive and free of embarrassing moments...

Bleh, just didn't get much done tonight

I wanted to. But nope, it didn't happen.

Work was busy-busy. I had an audit to perform with one of our auditor trainees and it was a good bit more in-depth than I expected. I'd blocked out 2 hours for it and it ended up being 2 1/2 hours and I didn't even get the report written up. Oh well, it is what it is.

And then when I got home there was stuff to do with the hubby and things to clean up and a long walk after dinner so I didn't get much written at all. Only 1200 words. I am up to 14K, though, so I'm not worried about it. Not sure that I'm going to keep the twist that I just put into the story. I think it's too soon for it. Or maybe it's not right yet. We'll see. I'll think it over, sleep on it and then write more tomorrow.

Hopefully without cutting the words I wrote today.

Didn't get more homemade Lush made. I might go nuke some cocoa butter and mix it with jojoba oil before I run my bath, just to see how that goes. But probably not.

Goals for tomorrow include writing, getting the POD version of this week's story done since it didn't happen tonight, exercises, and maybe, if I have time, homemade Lush products.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!
