A Life of Noisy Desperation
My tongue is hanging out, and not because of all the pretty boys.

Ow. I think I’ve been chewing on my tongue in my sleep, which is a new one.

In other news, the job safari continues to wander the savannah aimlessly with nary a water hole in sight. At least one of my temp agency contacts, Kim at Axion, is showing signs of sympathy and/or guilt, so I’ve got that going for me.

’\o/‘ *Napoleon Solo arms*

(Oh, just thought of another for Twin Peaks fans! \o = *Philip Michael Gerard arm*)

Speaking of the Man from U.N.C.L.E., I wound up taking this prompt in the highwaymiles ficathon: “97. Illya/Napoleon in a hot air ballon. There are monkeys.” Dude! Monkeys! How could I resist?

I’m also toying with the idea of a Supernatural/Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman crossover, set after the last Sandman arc, “The Wake,” and during the episode “Faith.” Because Dean is all about flirting with Death, while Sam would naturally fall asleep over his laptop and end up searching Dream’s library for a way to save his brother.

*nods* I'm not overly familiar with The Sandman, but this sounds like it'd be awesome.

Have you read any Gaiman? He’s one of my favorite authors. If you want to try his stuff but aren’t a comics person, I suggest looking for a copy of his short-story collection Smoke and Mirrors.

I've read Good Omens, which was co-authored with Terry Pratchett (who I adore) and I quite enjoyed it.

I also read American Gods and loved it, but that's all I've picked up by him.

I'll keep an eye out for smoke and mirrors though - I'm always looking for new reading material.

I'm currently trying to psyche myself up to read The Time Travellers' Wife, which everyone has recommended, but kinda stopped me about 10 pages in, mostly becuase I just wasn't in the mood for 'that type' of fiction just then.

Good Omens was my gateway drug for Gaiman and Pratchett. Excellent book.

I’ve heard several people mention The Time Traveller’s Wife but haven’t gotten around to picking up a copy. What kind of fiction is it? Perhaps once I’ve returned my current library loans I’ll add it to my want-list.

To be completely honest, I'm not sure. I really did pick it up because a number of people I find interesting recommended it.

I've since read some of the commentary at Amazon ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/customer-reviews/015602943X/ref=cm_cr_dp_pt/104-5706027-4238306?%5Fencoding=UTF8&n=283155&s=books )and I can't really pin it down to any one genre; it's a complex romance I guess.

I'll let you know what I think once I get through it!
