Well, I have a minute or two to post, so I will. I’m back home in NJ now, and will be leaving in just a few short minutes for Baltimore….
Yes, Ithaca->NJ->Baltimore ~= 3.5+4.5 hours =8 hours > Ithaca->Baltimore ~= 5.5 hours………. but the other way we wouldn’t have gotten to ride partway there with Mike, and I wouldn’t have gotten to see my dad. So there.
Anyway, so, yeah. Otakon soon, so yay.
Oh, I saw I, Robot Wednesday night with Beth. In short, it’s a much better movie than I thought it would be, possibly even better than the boook in some ways. Sure, it seems more like something by Phillip K. Dick (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) than Asimov (I, Robot [and other sordid tales]), but that’s not exactly a bad thing. Somethings just make for better movies is all…. Anyway, I don’t have too much time right now, but yeah- Calvin wasn’t bitchy enough, and Cons do give you super powers (I have some, afterall, so they must). Surprisingly, even Beth liked the movie- so much so, in fact, that she almost immediately borrowed the book from me.
