NOT finished with Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen, but I'm going to have to finish it next week as I've run out of time.

Spoilers! )

tl;dr Not done, careful with spoilers.

ETA: Definitely forgot things from earlier books. Time for a full re-read? :D

MY COPY OF GENTLEMAN JOLE AND THE RED QUEEN CAME IN THE MAAAILLLLL. \o/!!!

I'm saving it for this weekend, but I read the inside flap and now SUPER EXCITED. Jole's an admiral! Awwww.

And the timeline in the back describes Captain Vorpatril's Alliance thus: "ImpSec headquarters suffers a problem with moles." HAHAHAHAHAAAAA.

Also, it hints that this is going to include wills. Did I mention I'm in a Trusts and Estates course and it is THE BEST. It's awkward not being able to give legal advice yet, because never have I been so tempted to posting wildly incomplete advice on the internet for people.

I can say, though, that my introduction to wills was Neil Gaiman's blog post waaaay back in 2006, and I keep having recognition flashbacks to it in class, so make of that what you will.

AND IT IS AIMED AT PUBLISHED AUTHORS, SPECIFICALLY. YOU. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

The Allosaurus won! Here's to quite a few more years of rerun comics and awesome Sunday blog posts. ♥ ♥ ♥ Irregular Webcomic. :D

More importantly, I think many important things were forgotten in the news-following of yesterday, and I feel the need to fix that.

*clears throat*

CAPTAIN VORPATRIL'S ALLIANCE HAS BEEN RELEASED.

I'm hoping at least one of you has read Lois McMaster Bujold's fantastic space adventure series, but if not, you should. If you have, this is the first book starring Ivan and the ONLY reason I didn't pre-order it a million years ago is that LMB is doing a promotional tour that is going to be within traveling distance the first time in forever and I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to buy the book at the bookstore if I want to get it signed.

Roommate pre-ordered it though, so I'll get to read it when she finishes. This seems like a solid plan if we can make our apartment into a Spoiler-Free Zone.
