for the most part i don't shave my legs. i do if i'm going to wear shorts or a skirt, but when was the last time that happened? my husband only complains if they're stubbly, to which i kindly point out that if i didn't shave them in the first place they wouldn't be stubbly.

i think it really dries out your skin. once i stopped shaving my legs i found i didn't need to slather them in lotion anymore.

Yes, but it would be very expensive and time consuming to have your legs done.
Most people will get it for um.. smaller parts.

That, and not everyone can will 100% of the superbowls they were in, like the JETS.

Tonight, I have no time for fine literature...

But I do have time for SquidBillies and a couple of beers.

I need a beer and a good book. (After I pass the evil CPA exam and have time to drink and read again.) This test is ruining all my potential fun. It's a yutz.

Literature and Beer? That just must be Tom Robbins'"Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates"  and a cold Dithmarschener Pilser.

 

And Amy Whitehouse reading it for you.

Apparently Robert Lynn Asprin, author of the Myth Adventures series and many other genre novels, has died.

I hadn't kept up with his more recent work, wasn't really doing it for me anymore, but the dude had a heck of a sense of humor and a fun writing style.

R.I.P.

Noting my handle which I've used since 1982 I can't even begin to say how this bit of news has just struck me. Robert Asprin and his work from Thieves World through the Myth Books has been a part of my life for over 25 years. Good, bad or even indifferent I always looked forward to his writing and knowingg that the characters would be an evolving part of my life. The fact that this is no longer true truly saddens me.

The news of his death surprised me.

Kind of makes me want to go on a spending spree, pick up all of the Myth series that I can (the handle 'fleeb' is also influenced by his work), and go on a reading binge.  I haven't done that in decades.

Sadness, indeed.  I found them late late, but his adventures were truly perfect to myth-scape to.

In slightly lighter news, Cook has a new Garrett novel out, Cruel Zinc Melodies.
I've only just started, but it's great fun so far.

This may sound weird, but I got into such a habit of reading technical manuals that I haven't read any frivolous fiction in many, many years.  I think the last thing I read was something by Samuel Delaney.  Cool stuff, but it wasn't the sort of stuff I used to read when I was a kid.  Hell, my parents probably would have freaked had I read Delaney at that age, considering some of the content he writes.

So when you guys reminded me of Asprin's death (I had put it out of my mind after I read about it), and I got to thinking about how much he probably influenced me without realizing it, I decided I should reaquaint myself with his writing.

I went to Borders a few days ago, and bought all the Myth-series books I could find.  I think I probably got everything except the third and fourth story in the series.  Pity that, as I'm intending to read this entire series from the first book, in order.  Since I don't have those two readily available, I'm skipping them for now (I've already read them, when I was in my teens, unlike some of the later books.. so I guess it won't be too bad).

As it stands, I've devoured five of the books, and am working on a sixth: "Myth-nomers and Im-pervections".

I took the time to read his 1986 introduction to the M.Y.T.H Inc. Link book.  That was fascinating to read, and explains a lot of the things I really liked about reading these books; that it kind of chronicled the growth of Skeeve, even as it probably suggested something about the Asprin's own growth.  Since I probably only read one or two books after that, before I stopped reading this series (just couldn't find it anymore for some reason), I don't know how much of the format change really improved or killed his writing (I am guessing it improved it, as he cranked out quite a few more books after that change).

I thought it was particularly impressive that he wrote the first book in only five weeks.  Damn.  I mean, I understand he had been fleshing out the characters for a long time prior to it, and that he was pressed for time (so he swiped an old, cheesy plotline and made a parody of it), but damn.. that's some fast writing.

Interestingly, I bet someone could make a movie out of one of these books (likely as an animation).  They are not so full of depth that any one of these books would require a six hour extravaganza, but they aren't so fast that the movie would be a short.  I suspect they're just about the right size.

What is this "chronicles of the black company" I see on amazon?

Oh right, the myth books, those are the ones where at book 6 or 7 he said "I'm going to change the style of these books" and from then on they sucked. Now I remember. :-)
