My paid account time didn't lapse like I thought it would. Instead, like a moron, I completely forgot my automatic payments were turned on.

It's nice having a million icons and the ability to edit my comments, but that $20 could have gone somewhere else right now. :\

On another not so resigned note, keep your fingers crossed for me! I took an exam last week for a library position. My bank account could really use the part time work. My bank account could really use full time work, but I will take 20 hrs/wk if I can get it. :D

Our top 10 picks on The Official Site

I thought I'd mention it here:

I'm on The Official Star Wars website! Look on Page 7 for a year of Star Wars from the perspective of fan sites (like and large contributors, like Ashley Eckstein and Steve Sansweet.. duncatra asked a few of us to contribute for a compliment post on Club Jade (she was asked by Pablo Hidalgo); the article showcases a few of the blurbs we wrote for F/NF books and both of mine appear. Fate of the Jedi: Backlash and Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth! :)

So there it is.  Erika's been published on the official Star Wars website. Great way to end 2010, yes?


I read a lot

You can make your own here.

I've done this for two years and decided to try it one more time.  I wrote down the books I read each month and wow!  No wonder I got overwhelmed recently (you can see last year's here).

Compared to then (79 books), I read 101 (reviewed only 99) books this year.  I didn't plan to do that and think maybe I should slow down.  Well, not like should, more like my brain is telling me to slow down anyway. :p


Her Universe Rocks

There have been some awesomely awesome things that happened since my Club Jade article was published. For one, Ashley Eckstein responded by addressing everyone's concerns (which goes to show what an amazing advocate we have in her—if there was ever any doubt how invested she is in this line, she's proven otherwise).

For two, due to some complaints about shipping costs (honestly silly of me: I didn't realize the international rate was so high!), Her Universe offered free US shipping for all of last week and $8 off international shipping.

And the final cool thing: in an effort to be even more supportive than he already is for the line (and because he's really a big sweetie), Pete bought me the Her Universe manga hoodie (the Star Wars manga and me, we go way back), Plo Kool shirt, Star Wars burnout tee, and the Han/Leia "I know" shirt (which, sadly is more like a M/L than a S and has to be returned. :( ).

I am all set to be decked out in my nerdy finery. :)

I am so proud of my student.

She understood the humor between two sentences (we worked on simple past & past continuous tenses briefly today):

"I cut myself as I was peeling potatoes."

"I was cutting myself as I peeled potatoes."

Or maybe we both just have the same sense of humor. :p
