OK, does everyone get this at first?

And if they're making one movie, they'd better do all three. I personally would have thought it would have worked better as a TV miniseries, but I guess that's why they don't pay me the big money.

Here's a Holiday Meme )

It appears I've got some reading to do. I'm surprised that "The Colour of Magic" was selected for Pratchett. It may have been the first Discworld book, but it's not the best.

Despite the best efforts of the California DMV, I'm to understand Kate finally got the plates for the Prius this morning. We got this vehicle early in August. We had to get an extension to the temporary tags. It's already got 5k miles on it and had an oil change. The bureaucratic incompetence was staggering. My advice: don't buy a car and then move to another state. A Tip of the Hat to David Kroge, our dealer at Boulder Toyota who bent over backwards to make sure we got this thing. A Wag of the Finger to the California DMV who kept sending our paperwork about. Kate may provide additional details.

To take the edge off, here's the SciFi Meme folks have been doing lately.

You scored as Babylon 5 (Babylon 5). The universe is erupting into war and your government picks the wrong side. How much worse could things get? It doesn�t matter, because no matter what you have your friends and you�ll do the right thing. In the end that will be all that matters. Now if only the Psi Cops would leave you alone.
