Thursday Miscellany

This has been a pretty intense week for my little corner of the blogosphere.  I was tempted to find another argument to stir up today, but I think I’ve had about all I can process right now.  People have given me a lot to think about, thank you.  I’ll be doing a follow-up on the whole piracy thing, in part to address aspects of the problem which I hadn’t really considered until they were pointed out to me.

For the moment though, have some random and light tidbits.

1. I’ll be at ConFusion this weekend, and I’ve got a pretty busy schedule.  The program book is here.  I’ll be reading from The Snow Queen’s Shadow [Amazon | B&N | Mysterious Galaxy] on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. in the Board Room, for anyone who’s interested.

2. Speaking of Snow Queen, I’ve been playing around and made a few LJ icons.  Please help yourself, if you’re interested.  (Credit mentioning me or the book is always appreciated.)  Snow and Talia both get quotes from the books, but I think the “Mother issues” one is my favorite.

3. I haven’t posted anything LEGO in a while.  Time to remedy that.  A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an evil empire wanted ice cream.  The All-Terrain Ice Cream Transport was created by Louis K, and it makes me happy.  Click the pic for more, including a close-up of Vader with an ice cream cone.

All that’s left is for a John Williams score to start playing in that ring-a-ding ice cream truck style…
