Ok. I’m really drunk right now. But I just want all of my internet friends to be friends with each other. Or to be dating each other and eventually inviting me to the gorgeous weddings and so forth and so on.
“The joke behind Squirrel Girl, created by Will Murray and Steve Ditko, is that she’s an unlikely hero who looks sort of ridiculous in her furry mammal costume, yet somehow she proves unbeatable against every dangerous villain or crazed maniac she meets. One may wonder if the gimmick has the sticking power to support an ongoing series, but it’s worked pretty well for Batman for the last 75 years.”—Andrew Wheeler at CA (via teatime-brutality)
So I’m now reading “Maskerade” after finishing “Lords and Ladies” over the weekend… after tearing through the two previous witch books and I honestly don’t know what to read next. But I guess just every book of disc world again because I need the bad puns, brilliant stories, lovely prose and amazing footnotes. Maybe I’ll read the wizzard ones. Or the DEATH ones. It’s been a while for either group, honestly.
Just the dedication in this one alone is amazing. I might post it as a picture.
Terry Pratchett is an icon. His books are a salve for my brain when it is overheating at work. Or when I am just sad and overwhelmed.
Just pouring yourself into books you love. It feels like a warm hug.
Also at work today, at the end of one of my measurements, at about 1000°C for my friend, and during some capacitance measurements of a minion (to just tell you what effected me…not to mention all computers shutting down, etc)… the entire building lost power for 1 second.
Pretty sure someone is trying to scam my friend visiting from my old lab in the u.s.a.
Like they are conveniently in England and are willing to rent to him for two months… but he needs to pay in advance… and they will mail him the key. That is so un-german, the mailing the key. So fucking suspicious. Like keys are much more expensive to be copied and they worry over them here in a very bizarre way.
