    Greetings! Time for the annual fundraiser.Sorry for the late update, we normally start this early in October. Funds are needed to keep II and IIDB online. I was not able to get an IIDB based donations addon implemented for this year, I will make sure to have that done for next year. You can help support II in several ways, please visit the Support Us page for more info. Or just click:

    I will try to track all donations from IIDB. Many thanks to those that have already donated. The current total is $778. If everyone dontated just $5, we would easily hit our goal.

    They could at least have paid a little attention. England had a King for all of the 1930s. ijust had a lovely surprise. In the Time Traveller's Almanac I came across an Ursula leGuin short story I hadn't read before.

    King Richard is sexist?

    I am sorry to hear those elements of your personal story and really pleased to know that you have reached a place of some equilibrium.

    Things that make you laugh...

    PS Stop eating junk food for breakfast. It's a fairly well documented way to kill yourself. You're already a diabetic.

    From what you tell us, Keith, many, many people are likely to have permanent slots with their therapists on your account. It's just that it is to settle confusion and abrupt changes in worldview rather than abuse trauma. :)

    King Richard is sexist?

    Yeah, I get that. Same principle as "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you." :) But in this specific case Taylor is telling 2 women that they should have made choices according to her concepts. I wish I could find that irony meter image.

    King Richard is sexist?

    My answer to that would be that if a woman authors a work of art and anyone wants to tell her that, because she is a woman, that work of art should have been different and her choices are not good enough, then that is indeed unacknowledged sexist underpinnings limiting women's choices. Jessica...

    It took me about 5 minutes to fully comprehend the splendour of that thing.

    What are you reading?

    I can't figure out how I got to be 64 but had never run across Ion Idriess. Did something I rarely do and put down Texas Hold 'em about 10% in.

    Record Crate

    I couldn't get a copy of the White/English/Fawdon JC Superstar so my ex made a CD for me. I now have all the joys of vinyl, including fuzz and jumping needle on a CD. Them woz the days.

    Describe your workplace

    If I hire you to look after kids and do a bit of cooking leave your copy of To Serve Man at home.

    The first complete sentence was "Arya see the assassin's company of Faceless Men sitting around the dinner table, planning who will kill who." Sooo, that's a "who do I have to kill to ..." scenario?

    Describe your book collection

    I like this "books-by-the-yard", as a rough approximation. About 43 m of shelves, not counting what's stacked on the floor or still in boxes in the shed. All that would be on shelves if I had more shelves, or somewhere to put them. Once when discussing Aspergillus mould with an allergist, he...
