Me too! Just got back from the cinema, not that I'm crying as it gets
to midnight. No current plans may read, may watch TV....

And Golum had a number of Bothari moments too. Amazing SFX most of the
time I forgot he had to be Computer generated. Perfect look AND sound.
> Happy New Year to everyone on the list.
And from me too.
"The book is not an object on the table, it is an event in the reader's
mind. It's a process, through which an idea in my mind triggers an idea,
more-or-less corresponding, in yours. The words on paper are merely the
means to this end, a think-by-numbers set, a bottled daydream. The book,
therefore, is only finished when somebody reads it."
-- Lois McMaster Bujold (The Unsung Collaborator)
