children of dune - leto 1

the most boring amusement ever

It is not exactly shocking news that I'm among the least observant people in history. It's not even deliberate, really--though I'm going to be honest and say that, if you knew me in RL, about a quarter of the time, it probably is. Unless I'm *really* comfortable, unnaturally happy, or more than a little drunk, I usually have no idea what to say to people I don't know well and take the passive aggressive stance of hiding behind a book and looking *really* interested.

Yes, right, anyway.

When I leaned over the other day, my sister let out a shriek of horror, much like that of the girl in King Kong, which led me, of course, to consider the idea that extremely overgrown primates were invading. Alternately, that she was being killed right behind me. Frankly, the primates sounded more fun, but when I didn't see any, I turned around anyway, at which time Sister pushed me *back* around.

"WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR BACK?"

Frankly, I was kind of surprised--far as I knew, which wasn't that far, I mean, how often do you check out your own *back*-it was fine.

In far more interesting news, got an email from a chick I knew in Voyager, who somehow stumbled across me again, and *very cool*. Very excited, too--we lost touch after I switched fandoms. Multi-fandom-catching up is just surreal.

I'm so easy to make happy. *g*

I need something new to read.
