The Weekly Gnuz & Lynx Roundup — 2013/01/05
G’day, peeps. This week it was just the kitties and I to take care of the domicile and I managed to get a lot done. Thursday was library time, and earlier this Caturday I spent a bit of time at the local gaming shop reading and fooling around with mnemonics.
Besides blogging not much has been done online, though it feels like both triumph and tragedy on Twitter in a weird way, but that’s a story for another post. Last year, I posted My (Non) Psychic Predictions for 2012, and the next installment of this post will have the followup to that, to see how well I scored in my predictions despite not pretending any psychic ability at all…
I’ve got book reviews planned, and a reading list of all the stuff I filled my head with in 2012. Some of the reviews will be on the works of a writer of speculative fiction I know, one Stuart Barton, and he’s put out some really good stuff that needs a wider audience, so stay tuned for that.
Enjoy the coming week, and if that’s out of the question, make the best of it you can.
