amused and sad

I try to segregate my opinions of things I haven’t created from thoughts of my own creation through these two different blogs. Here I try to focus on things of my own creation, or commentary that is (somewhat?) uniquely my own.

Then I try to use links to stash my reviews of things that tickle my fancy, be they webcomics, print comics, books, film, tv, art, anime or whatever. I believe there are even a couple of entries in the archives about recipes that I’ve used. I suppose I should add a beer category since that hobby has been taking up more of my time.

Today I finished reading a book, and I wrote about it, but that’s not really the point. What made me so happy about this book is that I didn’t want it to end. I had used it on my trips on the T for reading, and I’ve been out sick the last week so I didn’t read any, but this evening I couldn’t take it anymore. I didn’t want the book to end, but I really wanted to know what happened next. It’s a feeling somewhere between glee and the frustration of not being able to reach an itch in the middle of my back. That feeling, to me, denotes great writing.

I’m just sad that I’m done with the book.
