NaNoWriMo participants: I'm sure all of you are very nice people, but please stop adding me to your G+ circles. Unless we know each other, I'm not adding you back.

A great article on Real Steel and little girls who love robots. Speaking as a robot-loving little girl who grew up into a robot-loving woman, this makes me so happy. Also, Real Steel is 1) getting good reviews, 2) has robots, 3) stars Hugh 'sexypants' Jackman. I think this means I need to go see it. Anyone?

From Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy:

"If there was a reason for his preferring liberal to conservative views, which were held also by many of his circle, it arose not from his considering liberalism more rational, but from its being in closer accordance with his manner of life. The liberal party said that in Russia everything is wrong, and certainly Stepan Arkadyevitch had many debts and was decidedly short of money. The liberal party said that marriage is an institution quite out of date, and that it needs reconstruction; and family life certainly afforded Stepan Arkadyevitch little gratification, and forced him into lying and hypocrisy, which was so repulsive to his nature. The liberal party said, or rather allowed it to be understood, that religion is only a curb to keep in check the barbarous classes of the people; and Stepan Arkadyevitch could not get through even a short service without his legs aching from standing up, and could never make out what was the object of all the terrible and high-flown language about another world when life might be so very amusing in this world."

This is officially the worst hockey off-season ever. Too much death.

I remember being a small town kid and how the children's section of my hometown's then tiny library was how I learned about new places and experienced amazing stories. If you can, help these kids get that back.

A small-town Adirondack library lost its children's collection to flooding in Hurricane Irene. Check out these heartbreaking photos...and information on how you can help make sure kids already hit hard by flooding have access to books.
