1. -2° (F) at the moment outside–up from a low of -8°. Feels almost like home. My son, a sun-belter by temperament despite his Minnesota roots, hates the guts out of days like this, but I’m kind of enjoying the cold snap.
2. In honor of Patrick McGoohan, my son and I watched “The Girl Who Was Death,” maybe the best of all the Prisoner episodes. AMC, the guys who are producing the new Prisoner, are (trying to atone for their sins by) kindly offering the entire series online in streaming video. (The AMC linked snaffled from Chris’s Invincible Super-blog.)
3. I’m not saying it’s cause and effect, but, you know. I join SFWA. and within a few months–BAM! New rules for the Nebula that actually make sense. I’m not saying there’s any causal effect. Because there isn’t any: I didn’t contribute to the discussion and was as surprised as anyone by the announcement. I’m just saying… nothing, apparently.
