This is starting to depress me. I will have to go read my new Jasper Fforde
novel to cheer myself up. Also the one that comes before it. I glanced
through _Clockwork Angel_ enough to see that the Victorian setting hadn't
really affected the flavor of the text much, but I was sort of hoping it
would transcend that problem....
Posting on my blog became complicated because I had to weed out the spam,
and because I depend on Jacob to maintain the site. Yes, I realize that
having a web page is so simple these days that even untrained monkeys and
members of the US Congress can do it, but I am very slow at learning new
programs of any kind, and I have all these other things that I could be
doing. But I will see about some alternative to Facebook. It's writing the
review that takes time, not posting it multiple places.

You people and your LiveJournal accounts. I'm really starting to feel that
if I don't have one, I'm a failure as a person. :)
