Illustmaker me

An eclectic collection of thoughts

Getting close to three months in the gym. Still not a gym person. I mean, they seem to have ditched TNT altogether to have more talk shows and news shows and sports shows instead of Angel or Law and Order, and their entire magazine collection seems to consist of gossip mags, hair advice, and so on. Nary an Asimov's in sight. Thank heaven, sjepstein gave me a present to listen to music on, because honestly, listening to the Buffy soundtrack or Weird Al or even Footloose helps immeasurably for my own sake... but that overwhelming, I don't know, anti-geekery(?) is still disconcerting to me. It's like I've sidled into some alternate universe where fiction doesn't exist, except maybe for something so trendy it absolutely can't be avoided. It's creepy.

Shades, Chapter Five: Relocation, pt. 3

Ah, moving stories are fun when they have no ramifications...

Anyway, I left Tonks with Remus in the Shrieking Shack, having agreed to be part of the Auror team that relocates to Hogsmeade. He's explained to her how to get from the Shack into Hogwarts and vice versa and given her a talisman to get her past the security wards. And they argued about his unilateral decision to give up entirely on their relationship. And she kissed him. And he didn't entirely object.
