I picked up Paradise Killer and Riven. I see way too many others on sale that are on my wishlist, though, so I have a feeling I'm not done. :D

Re: Have you thanked a narcissist today? (Pros/cons of the self-involv

Um, for reasons I'd rather not go into, I cannot post about my dealings with narcissists here. But at least all those dealings are in the past for me.

Ummm... this says my answer to question "What was the name of Julie's character on the soap?" was wrong. I just double-checked, and my answer was correct. Your answer was wrong, Gideon! UMMM... :D
