In 2109, I'll be 142: I don't think I'll have any eyes left by then.  Wink

Hopefully by then, the South African cricket team will have won a tournament, the Olympics will have been held here and so on  Wink

The only - and I mean only - SA sports team that's never let me down is our national Paralympic team. Those men and women return from the Olympics with arms full of medals and they don't let their so-called disabilities get in the way of winning. They make me very, very proud.  Cheers

The core rulebooks for 3.5 ed D&D, as well as the Arms & Equipment Guide. I have the funny feeling I'll be checking them a lot this year.

Late last year, I started on Dean Koonz's Frankenstein series and am currently on the second volume. I got Brandon Sanderson's Reckoners Trilogy for Christmas, so I'll be taking a crack at it in the near future. The Psychotronic Video Guide is something I've been using for bedtime reading, since the short entries make it easy to put down when I get too tired to read. And I've been sporadically working my way through Tom Holland's translation of Herodotus.

Bumping this. Not sure if it's worthy of a pin but I could be convinced...

I try to re-read a Jane Austen book every year, and this summer it was Persuasion. Austen is one of those writers who reveals some new depth of genius with each reading. Would that she'd had more time. (And may Heaven have a library's worth of her books!)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
