This Is The Year That Was In Hornswoggling

Michael A. Burstein wasn't sure if this was a meme or not, but I figure if people pick it up from each other, then it has become a meme. So I'll pick it up from him, and make it that much more meme-like in the process.

What to do: post the first sentence of the first post from each calendar month of this year, with links.

Rolling three dice for the second time, and I get a 4.

Do you ever stop adding people to your list?

SF Site has just put up their list of the Best SF and Fantasy Books of 2005:

"Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience treacherous, judgment difficult."

I've kept out of the Kaava Viswanathan muddle mostly because I didn't have anything in particular to say.

Into every life a little utter frivolity must fall, and this was my dose last night.

I might seem to be a nice person (not here, I mean, in real life -- if you're one of the few Antic Musings readers who actually know me in real life), but, really, I'm not.

August: I love randomness (at least in small, controlled doses, for purely research or scientific purposes), so I had to do another version of the "set your playlist to random and answer these questions" meme.

Patrick Nielsen Hayden linked to an online Asperger's quiz recently (well, not all that recently, but I was poking though his LJ this morning, and I noticed it).


I spent a few hours yesterday reading the first hundred-or-so pages of a SF novel I was quite enjoying, but, one of the times I came up for air, I had to ask myself the dreaded question "But can I get SFBC members to buy it?"

A collection of cartoons (mostly five apiece) from about thirty New Yorker cartoonists -- but these are all cartoons rejected by The New Yorker.
(Please Note: I do realize that the above is not actually a "sentence" in the strict grammatical sense. Stuff happens.)

"Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie!' until you can find a rock."
- Wynn Catlin

It says much more about my posting style than I want to accept on a Friday morning...
