starlady: closeup on Lady Gaga wearing her totalitarian steampunk monocle (lady gaga is queen)
I am not really a very good American, if we define a good American as someone who spends all her income on consumerist crap and wants a car and a house in the suburbs. I want less crap, out of the suburbs, and prefer to ride trains rather than drive a car, much though I like driving itself too much. The only attraction owning a house holds for me is that a house could probably fit all my books. Probably.

That said, the house I would buy for myself in a heartbeat if I could is for sale, and it could be mine for only $1.69 million.

This house is worth living in Haddonfield for, you guys. Here's the street view--it's hard to convey just how awesome the house is, the sweep of the hill up from the street; the listing photo is taken too close to really convey that.

*sigh*

Via [livejournal.com profile] nojojojo,[livejournal.com profile] zia_narratora took the bull by the horns and wrote to the creator of the I Write Like... meme that's gone around in the past few days. High points: out of 40 authors in the analysis, 37 are men--even Margaret Atwood's writing comes out like P.G. Wodehouse. And the creator refuses to add more women or PoC authors because people are equal and race and gender don't matter. Which is why all the authors on the list are white, doubtless.


On a contrapuntal note, Happy Birthday, [personal profile] owlectomy!

1. Slowly making my way through [personal profile] petra's Be Awesome to Each Other meme; I decided by the end that I might as well put my own name up, though I suspect I've missed the boat.

2. Going to Milwaukee this weekend, bringing the laptop to facilitate translations happening. Also hopefully writing.

3. Geordi LaForge, Sarah Connor, Felix Gaeta, John Watson, Max Guevara
