Summer reading, watching, and eating

Reading: I'm done with the Vorkosigan Saga. I'm not going to read the two prequels, at least not yet, because they don't have any of the characters I love. I might catch up with them later. 

Shards of Honor and Barrayar both have the same kick-ass heroine, Miles' mother. Terrific! 

Captain Vorpatril's Alliance did wow me as much as I wanted it to. I love Ivan, but I need him to be Miles' foil and not a main character. It was still good fun. Cryoburn was excellent, one of my favorites in the series. The end of the story was heart wrenching--and I even knew it was coming.

So, is Lois McMaster Bujold a Stargate fan? At one point in Cryoburn, someone sees a pyramid and someone else makes a comment about "Denial." A page later she mentions an Unas. I laughed out loud. The very end of the story is a series of 100 word drabbles. I thought of Sid. 

Watching: I caught Man from U.N.C.L.E. again last night. I love that show.

Eating: I've been cooking up a storm: peanut butter bars, sweet and sour meatballs, homemade spaghetti sauce. 

What I haven't been doing is writing. *sigh* I't's like all the words have dried up. Ah, well.
