Remember that guy that used to write here? Yeah, he was cool.

So how is everybody doing? It's been a while. Why? I don't know. Well, that's not entirely true. I know that I have been lazy and that Twitter has become my Internet outlet lately. You can follow me there if you want. All the cool kids are doing it. (Except, Cookie, and she really should.) Look, there is a link over there on the right. Go poke it and follow my wit and wisdom over there.

What else? Oh, I updated the blog a little. It was due for a change. I added my currently reading widget from Goodreads. I've been reading a lot lately. I've read Feed and Deadline by Mira Grant (AKA Seanan McGuire). They are zombie novels, but not your average zombie books. They are great and you should really read them. I mean it.

As you can see, I'm reading Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson right now because it's a great name for a book, and we all know it is coming eventually so I might as well be ready. I wonder if the zombie apocalypse or the robopocaplyse will come first? Maybe they will team up and completely wipe us out. Who wants to write that mash-up novel?

I've been watching a lot of TV, too. It's been very rainy here the last month, so there hasn't been a lot to do. One show I recommend is Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet. These researchers are looking for bigfoot, of course, but they are totally gung-ho on this. It's not that they just want to track down reports from people, they believe bigfoot is out there for sure and keep mentioning all these "facts" about them. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but we have never actually found a bigfoot, right? So, there is no way we know how they sound, how big they are, etc. Right? Unless Harry and The Hendersons was based on a real life situation I didn't know about. Seriously, watch it. Just once. It's fun!

Oh, I also have a new music review up at Functional Nerds. So you should probably read that this weekend. What else do you have to do? There is a lot of other cool stuff over there.

Okay, go have a good weekend. I promise to be back soon. I know you have all been waiting.

I'm not on Goodreads all that much (I mostly use LibraryThing), but friend me over there anyway so I can keep up with what you're reading!

Oh, and you may want to update that "Goals for 2009" thing down near the bottom of your sidebar... :-D

Mike said...

Florinda: I think I'm still working on reaching some of those goals. :)

I don't know if you'll like anything I read, but you never know until you try, right?

Cookie said...

You've been at the store, trying to talk your daughter into wanting pie! I don't need to follow you on Twitter. :p

Will there be a quiz later? ;^)

I've been watching River Monsters. I may need professional help.

Cookie said...

Btw, what's going on with your comments?

Mike said...

Cookie: I watched swamp monsters and got too scared to watch it again. That shit is real. :)

What's wrong with the comments. I know Blogger has had some issues lately, that may be the problem.

Yes, there will be a quiz. Pencils down!

Cookie said...

I'm afraid to watch Swamp Monsters. I don't wanna know. o.O

I'm using my gmail account to comment and it takes me to a weird page that offers me a chance to get my own blog. :? Very odd. That page also has a thing that lets me log in so my comments go through. I think it's been that way for a couple of weeks now from what I've seen on other blogs.

If I send you a pie, can I get a pass on the quiz? ;^)

Mike said...

Cookie: Oops, I meant river monsters. There are too many similar shows to keep track of. :)

I think that's Bloggers new spam stuff. I don't get enough comments to worry about spam. :)

You get a free A!

Cookie said...

Too many shows with Monster in the title. I know. ;^)

That would explain it.
