Book report

A Fire Upon the Deep (Vernor Vinge): Good plot, fascinating aliens. Suffers from a flaw common to SF, I imagine it would be totally incomprehensible to non-technical people.

Deep Secret (Diana Wynne Jones): A lot of fun to read, even though I didn't really like the main character. I liked the trip to Babylon a lot.

Watchmen (Alan Moore): This was great, really good storytelling, well-developed characters. I guess I'll have to see the movie now. Highly recommended.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, seasons 1-4: Hey, it was on hulu (operative word being *was*) and I needed something to watch. Very entertaining. I'd prefer a little less kissing and more monster killing, but whatever. Now I have to finish it up with DVDs from the library, curse you hulu.

Death Note: This is still on hulu, it was... interesting.

Hulu *does* have seasons 1-8 of Stargate SG-1. :-) :-)

I feel somehow validated by this post... I was secretly addicted "Buffy" when it was on tv. I've admitted much worse in my life, but somehow this is more humiliating to me.
