On Tuesday, hubby and I went out to celebrate that it's been 10 years since we officially became a couple! We had coffee and Thai food and then we went to shop for books. (I got this - if any artist could inspire me to take up art again, it would probably be Jaime Hernandez. Or Hiroaki Samura.)

I understand that there's a new Wheel of Time book out. Man. This thing has been going for twenty years!! It was a huge part of my high school years (maybe even junior high...? Oh say it ain't so.) Apparently, this installment gives a lot of page time to what used to be my favorite character, so I might just have to pick it up. But geez, getting back into the ball of yarn of that universe feels like an intimidating task even with the Internet. It's not even like my favorite was a particularly fantastic character - I latched on to him when I was young and lost and wanted something to latch onto and then I just kind of clung out of loyalty. Loyalty's a strong force, though. I never completely let go of old fandoms. Oh, and I can still remember the thrill of rushing to the bookstore to pick up the latest, untranslated WOT book after ordering it. The happy smell of paper, cardboard and pens. *reminisces*

On the topic of JGL, he appears to be back in action. I really, really want to give him a hug.

I was thinking the other day about how far removed the Arthur character is from JGL until I realized how wrong I was:

“The spiral in a snail’s shell conforms to what some call the golden ratio: about 1 to 1.618,” he says. “The curve can be found in the Milky Way, in pine cones and in the proportion between the distances from the tip of your toes to your navel, and your navel to the top of your head.”

and

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has put on a tie, as he does before every interview. This wouldn’t be noteworthy if not for the fact that we’re talking to each other on the phone. “Yeah, I put on a tie to talk to you,” he admits, laughing at the absurdity. “Doing interviews requires a certain mindset. You have to speak in a way that’s quotable and translates to text—if I put on a tie it helps me remember that.”

JGL was Arthur before there was an Arthur. I'm so amused.

Other than that, I mostly feel the listlessness of the spoiled.
