  Radio Adventures of Doctor Floyd
This is a great podcast. Check them out

They have some really great voice talent and sound effects. The episodes are short (which I like), and funny, HILARIOUS!

Also, check out Podiobooks, I added my own subscriptions to the side bar, so check those out as well. When I get a minute, I'll update my podcsts on the side bar to include Dr. Floyd and a few other podcasts I found.

Keep sending me those book recommendations. Remember, my address is pavlina point two at gmail dot com.

  In a galaxy far, far away
I still haven't seen Episode III yet. I don't know what I am waiting for. Maybe it will get better with age? I'm thinking I'll just read the novelization, and call it done until the big, six movie DVD set comes out.

In events closer to home, I will NOT be at BaltiCon this year. I repeat, I WILL NOT be at BaltiCon this year. Only half of the reason is because family will be in town. The really reason is that I don't want to bring my will-be-six month old daughter with me, and I don't want to leave her at home either. There is always next year.

I never did get Windows 98. To tell the truth, I have just been playing AOEII so much, I can't see playing XCOM, no matter how good it was. I was lying in bed this morning thinking of it, and I remember the graphics aren't all that, but it is a really fun strategy game, so is AOEII. The only thing is, I really suck at the battles, I just win by "superior" numbers. Oh well.

I tried a demo of AOEIII. I hated it. I found the interface clumsy and annoying. I found the villagers idiots. I only played it for about ten minutes though. I am thinking of just getting Warcraft anyway, though. As soon as I master the battles of AOEII.

I'm also working on my summer reading list. I finally finished Judas Unchained, and I was only slightly disappointed in the outcome. I was thinking of reading Green Mars and Blue Mars. Maybe another Ringworld book, Ringworld engineers. Some Neil Gaiman, since I haven't read any of his stuff yet. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail.
This is my totally geeky blog. I will be giving updates on all my sci-fi related gossip, the latest and coolest podcasts I have discovered, where my writing is at, and a whole lot more.
