AWESOME BOOK

Ok, so you guys know that I never post on here. But I have felt compelled to post this. If you want an AMAZING book go out and get "The Lies of Locke Lamora" by Scott Lynch.

This is an awesome first novel from a brand new author and he's written a hell of a book. It's not a typical "fantasy" book. It's more of a crime drama fantasy. Here's a link to Amazon to read the reviews and the synopsis of the book.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0553804677/sr=8-1/qid=1155756253/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-5858268-0488860?ie=UTF8

And here's a review...by the way it's been given 4 1/2 out of 5 stars by the reviewers on amazon.

From Publishers Weekly
Life imitates art and art scams life in Lynch's debut, a picaresque fantasy that chronicles the career of Locke Lamora—orphan, thief and leader of the Gentlemen Bastards—from the time the Thiefmaker sells Locke to the faking Eyeless Priest up to Locke's latest con of the nobility of the land of Camorr. As in any good caper novel, the plot is littered with obvious and not-so-obvious obstacles, including the secret police of Camorr's legendary Spider and the mysterious assassinations of gang leaders by the newly arrived Gray King. Locke's resilience and wit give the book the tragicomic air of a traditional picaresque, rubbery ethics and all. The villain holds the best moral justification of any of the players. Lynch provides plenty of historical and cultural information reminiscent of new weirdists Steven Erikson and China Miéville, if not quite as outré. The only drawback is that the realistic fullness of the background tends to accentuate the unreality of the melodramatic foreground.

My Laptop Broke...crap

Well, my laptop broke.

If anybody has a motherboard for a Dell Inspiron 8500, I'd like to buy it off you.

Apparently the graphics chip broke on it and it's fused to the board and so the whole thing needs to go.

Oh well, time to start saving for a new computer I guess.

Penny Arcade!
You are Penny Arcade! Edgy and sarcastic, you cut
through the stupid mundanity of everyday life,
but mostly the world of computers and video
gaming. While you are hilariously funny, no one
will ever know if you never go outside. Put
down the controller and get some fresh air.

So I have a theory....

My theory is that MysticIrishWolf wants her posts to always be at the top of everybody's friends list so she automatically makes a post in her journal so that she can regain the top spot!
