Life. Sometimes the drama forces you to assess things more clearly, you know?

In other news, I finally read Neil Gaiman's Stardust yesterday and it was fabulous! For those of you that haven't read it, it's a fantasy/faerie tale/quest novel featuring a cusp-of-adulthood young man searching for a fallen star. It was a pretty quick read; I finished it in one (pretty slow) shift at the boy's house. I loved the fairy tale tone of it. It's hard to hit on that tone and still maintain a complicated plot and multi-faceted characters. He did an excellent job though. I wasn't sucked in immediately, but all of a sudden I was like half way through the book and couldn't put it down. I definitely had some straight up hand-to-mouth gasps at certain points of the action, and it also had a whole lot of heart. I always love watching completely disparate plot threads converge, and I was so satisfied with the ending of this one. He didn't cop out; the ending followed the plotlines that he'd set in motion; but he did it so elegantly. It was a true pleasure and I highly recommend it. :)
