I suppose I could post here. Although realistically, I'm going to continue to not-post here just like I've been not-posting over on LJ.

eventually I will populate my reading list with all of the people whose posts I wish to read. It's a slow process.

I may just be cranky, or it may be a side effect of the internets. I like reading fiction, and just... reading the fiction. Not having long involved arguments about what would happen if this particular fantasy element in that particular fantasy story were actually true, and how our world would be different. Because dude. It's fantasy. That's the POINT.

so in the interests of not being a slug, and using a little less gas, and generally being good to my body and the earth, I dug my bike out of the basement, pumped up the tires, found my helmet (need a new one, I think) and took the old green bike for a spin. I still remember how to ride. I think this is a good thing, and I think I'm going to try to do more biking to the train, and riding the train, and things.

I need lights too, if I'm going to be biking at night. I wonder if Mom has spare lights.

I took the last train home last night - the train that leaves north station at 12:10a.m. and if you're not on it you're staying in town overnight or your overly indulgent friends are giving you a ride home.

Weird people take the last train. I swear the two guys sitting nearest to me were time travelers, almost used to this century, but not quite. They wore hats! Not ball caps, but real hats - a straw boater and a trilby, to be exact.

The train is full of stories, and I think I need to spend more time on the train, gathering stories and seeing what I can do with them. My time travelers clearly belong to Diana Wynne Jones, but maybe a character of my very own will wander by for me.

I used to arse myself to write things when I was in front of my computer. Perhaps I can get that back. I have very real writing goals, and this needs to be the year - this is the year I turn 30, and having a divisible by ten birthday must Mean Something.

If only people had seven fingers instead of ten, we would celebrate... well, actually we would still celebrate birthdays that end in zero, it's just that I would be turning 42 this year. Hmm. I guess I can't start giving my age out base 7 can I.

I wonder... oh dear. I wonder if I can sustain a base... it's gonna have to be eight or six, because I can't justify... nine. I can manage tri-symetry and a base nine system, perhaps... No, eight, I think. I wonder how long I can carry that story. I wonder if I can come up with a plot.

Well. My bizarre math-based (base math based?) digression appears to have born some fruit. Now, to try and Do Something.

I think I'm not planning to link this to lj so much. Perhaps I'll change my mind. A new blog is a goodness - I'm feeling much more like little bear blue than like the computer room kitty these days.

Of course, the middle of the night is not the time for this sort of thing.

If I'm lucky, there will be more writing. I think the knowledge that not so many people are reading this so far will help.
