Life Update

Not much had been going on in my life, but given a few recent posts, I thought I'd update.

* The copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that had the upside-down signature sold to a collector in England, and I'll be mailing it out to him later today.

* lensman and gem225 both offered to lend me their DVDs of Star Trek, so I'm all set with those. When I can post more about why I needed them, I will.

* gem225 (who is new to comics) and I went on a comic book shopping trip last week. She reports on what she's started to buy and read in her post "I discover the joy and lure of comics, part 2". (I suppose this doesn't have much to do with my own life, but it's fun watching her get interested in comics. She's picked a good time to do so as well, what with Infinite Crisis on the horizon.)

* Finally, I've been in the process of revising the novel. I'm almost done with Part One, which required the most extensive rewrite, especially since I jettisoned about two chapters worth of material. If I'm able to keep up the pace, I'll have the second draft done by the end of the month.

    Yom Kippur begins tonight, and I haven't really had the time since Rosh Hashanah to contemplate what that should mean for me spiritually. What…
