I'm really enjoying the advent of Autumn, despite the fact that it heralds the start of 'wear every item in your wardrobe' mode of dress. Maybe this time I'll buy myself some great thin and warm as the fires of the inferno flannels. Because, I like being comfy, and I like being warm. Summer is harder, because while in winter you can add clothes until you look like you're related to the Pillsbury Dough Boy or a Marshmallow, there's only so much clothing you can get away with NOT wearing when it's super hot.

Went and saw Zombieland this weekend, and I think that I will definitely be seeing that one again. It's sort of like Tremors, with Zombies. Speaking of things that have added zombies, I have read both Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as well as Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. There's part of my brain that thinks I should have more of a purist leaning, but at the same time... that would be pretty hypocritical given the crazy fanfiction I've read. There's not a lot of integrity you can claim when you've read as many crazy crossovers as I have.

This semester I'm taking five classes, three of which that are crazy intensely difficult, and two of which are sort of not as hard. Of course, they haven't made us do any quizzes or tests in those two, so there's time for me to be completely losing my mind with that. Meanwhile, Osteology and Archaeology of the Far East and the Ancient Maya have been freaking killing me with quizzes. Osteology is a rather difficult class, but I do love it. I pretty much live in the lab whenever there's a chance to be there and I'm not too sick and tired to be usefully occupied. Meanwhile, the teacher is totally awesome. He is one of those people that has the appearance of total confidence in his abilities, without being unproductively arrogant. We've finally gained enough familiarity with the cranial vault structures to attempt assessments of sex, age at death and geographical affinities. Very exciting.

What's new with you all flist?

I was thinking of reviewing these today as well. Adored Zombieland, thought PPZ was delightful and very well crafted, and SSS gave me screaming nightmares. Part of me wishes I hadn't read it because this is just making my ocean phobia worse, thanks.

I'm not entirely sure why I was okay with either of those books. They were a little gory for where I usually am comfortable watching/reading etc. Of course I don't have an Ocean phobia either, so I probably enjoyed S&S&Sea Monsters more than you did. :D

I loved Zombieland so much. The timing was gorgeous, the characters were awesome. One of the best movies I've seen in a looong time.

The other book I read that was cracktastic was "Mr. Darcy, Vampyre"

I keep seeing the Bug!Clones around my neighborhood. Makes me think oh look! houses!dogs.

Is Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, by the same group? Sounds hysterical. What I loved most about PPZ is that it made so much sense: I was left with the feeling that 'AHA! SO that's why they all acted that way'. While I love film adaptions of the book, reading it left me cold. This version? Awesome.

Have you asked what the 'bug!clones' are made of? Sound adorable.

Totally different people did 'Mr. Darcy, Vampyre' and it takes itself seriously even if I didn't and is I guess a sequel. It starts where the book leaves off.

I felt the same way about the series. Especially Margaret in S&S&SM. And the way everyone is so studiedly absorbed in the little dramas while bigger things are behind them.

Don't know what the Bug!Clones are made of, I haven't gotten the chance to ask. The first time I was too interested in seeing if there was a Houses!Clone attached, the next few times, I was too far away.
