felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Default)
'Tis been an extraordinarily busy few weeks. Today was finally a day off, so I've squandered it thus far luxuriously in writing. My vacations tend to involve a lot of running around, and when I returned we'd just moved into the new office space. That meant somebody had to move and unpack most of the sixty-somewhat book-and-paper-crammed black plastic crates.

Everybody else suddenly became very busy. And as I'm lowest on the ladder in administration at my company, all passed bucks stop here. I did get a lot more hours than usual (almost twice as many), which will result in a much better form of passed bucks come payday.

I'm reading so much lately that my to-review pile is taking over my desk. So I'll take on a novel I read early in the year - Fruit by Brian Francis, the hilarious story of a too-pubescent 12-year-old boy who's the only person in Sarnia, Ontario, not to have figured out he's gay.

Review continues, with a rant! No real spoilers but cut for length )

And if it's ever made into a movie, the theme song will have to be "Chronicles of Sarnia" by Owen Pallett. Actually, this is just an excuse to link to Owen Pallett:

This would be my first post to Dreamwidth. I thought I'd begin with a book review, which I do a lot of over at LJ.

(Apologies to the two of you who might've gotten this cross-posted from my LJ. I think I might be doing that a fair bit as I warm myself to Dreamwidth.)
