What Happened Last Week?
Ever have one of those weeks when things go a little wrong? When maybe you minorly screw up just about everything? Yeah, that was last week for me. Nothing went terribly wrong, but nothing was quite right either. By Thursday/Friday, I was in a foul, foul mood.
Good bit: Eric started DMing a Gamma World campaign using GURPS. Gamma World is a post-apocalypse setting and is full of mutant animals and puns. My characters is a blind bipedal human-sized guinea pig with radar vision named Ray Carls, Jr.
A Good Moment
I was up early enough on Friday to catch some of the sunrise. The sky was particularly lovely in shades of peach, mauve, and deep blue.
Books edition, apparently:
- Bookshelf etiquette. How to arrange your books – Or, you know not. But seriously, if I had enough room and enough bookshelves, I’d probably organize by fiction/nonfiction, “genre,” then alphabetical by last name.
- There’s Nothing Wrong With Anyone’s Personal Library – In college, I acquired A LOT of books. I’m still living with the consequences.
- Maybe the Book Doesn’t Need to Be “Disrupted” in the First Place? – What I’ve always wanted from “enhanced” books is something more along the lines of Power Moby-Dick: extensive annotation via hyperlinks. Unfortunately, it’s rare when an ebook has a properly formatted and linked table of contents. Forget soundtracks and video clip, I just want easily navigable footnotes.
