Blog Stuff: That worked out nicely.

Got home last night around midnight and surfed teh intarw3bz briefly. I then toddled back down the stairs, built a fire in the chimenea, and settled in on the porch with some Snake Dog IPA and my umpteenth re-reading of Heinlein's To Sail Beyond The Sunset. I went off to bed at three and no alarm was set, so when I awoke at 10:00AM, I was feeling nice and rested. This would make for a nice routine.

*pirouettes* How'd it work? Do I look snarkier?

We'll see how this plays out, with the inevitable speedbump of Saturday morning looming in the middle distance.

(Gives wolf whistle)
Your typing looks better already...

Sam said...

That your favorite RAH book? If it's your umpteenth re-reading it must be one of 'em. Hmmmmmm.

I like SF.

I like Heinlein.

I like history.

A Heinlein SF story that is also largely a view of life in turn-of-the-century America is a gimme. Most of the time I just usually read up til WWII and put it down, but about every third reading I'll roll all the way through.

(BTW: I have book Heinlein's ever published except for a couple of currently out-of-print juveniles. I've read all of them at least three times, some a couple of dozen.)

You one of them bookworms, or something?

Love Heinlein*. Got my daughter hooked on Podkayne of Mars, then discovered that there are different endings! Sometime in the 50s, I think, they had school kids write different endings and some of them got published. It was a shock when my daughter described an ending that I didn't remember.

*Except when he does his Trashing of anything spititual/religeous, ala: Job: A Comedy of justice.

I still have a soft spot for his juveniles. If you don't count old Doc Savage pulps, my first SF novel was Have Space Suit, Will Travel. And I still laugh at the obscure dirty joke he inserted into The Star Beast just to see if he could get it past his prude of an editor.

A) Does this mean I c'n keep the Yeti? It's real cuddly! It does sort of snore, though.

B) You even have RAH's Tramp Royale? (If not, see me later). Kewl stuff.

C) Brynap: okay, that makes three gunnies I know of that read Doc Savage. It's chewing gum for the brain!

BobG said...

Doc Savage? I haven't read him in over 30 years; that brings back some memories.

Gregg said...

Uhhmmmh,
Nope, no Doc Savage here (quickly tossing a sheet over the bookcase. Nope, no need to look behind the sheet....

LabRat said...

You Doc Savage fans ought to check out Venture Brothers- he's sent up (along with about a billion others) quite nicely in it.

Roberta X said...

I'll be superamalgamated! ...I will admit, not without some trepidation, to enjoying Venture Brothers. Oh, and I've decided to keep the Yeti. Tam can't have him. She's got a Chimera, after-- What? Oh. Ohhhh.

You must have a different copy of that book than I do. (Hint, in the end, they are in Heaven).

Not to mention Stranger in a Strange Land....

Heinlein's writing can be very pro-spiritual/religion. The people who suck souls in the guise of religion, not so much...
