Five things

It is Friday, after all.

1. I have given up hunt-and-pecking on my phone in favor of two-thumbed texting. I make more typos, but I think it’s still faster overall. Also, makes me feel like I am still capable of learning new things, thus, win.

2. Finally read The Manual of Detection, which I liked a whole bunch, and think would be good to discuss in combination with Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead. 

3. Listening to We Are Anonymous, which also has a good companion read in Epic Win For Anonymous, especially if you, like me, are fascinated by online communities and how people affiliate with them, or really with anything (sports teams, political parties, etc.) that is a way of claiming a particular type of identity.

4. Trying to figure out how to not be scared of GoodReads. I have made an author page there but I have not, shall we say, fleshed it out or visited it much. I just hate star rankings and they make me anxious and I also hate that they’re the first thing you see. Writers on GoodReads, how do you manage it?

5. Here is a robot in a bow tie. Okay it is not actually a robot, but it is deliberately robotesque:

    the robot looks like Bender from Futurama… I feel like I need to give him bottles of booze.
