Wiggle-worthy UBS loot

My local UBS seems to be run by blue-hairs, but I went to the UBS in the “Big City” this morning. *wiggle*

Merry Christmas, Baby—Brava anthology that I bought, lent out before I’d read it, and never got back.

A Date With the Other Side by Erin McCarthy—I felt badly about buying this one used but I’ve got trade tastes with a mass market budget, you know?

Menage by Emma Holly—We’ll see.

And now for the wiggling…

Coming semi-unplugged

The Smart Bitches have a link to an interesting discussion going on over at AAR.

Can I check it out? No.

I’ve been AAR-less since getting my high-speed cable modem, which was…2 years ago, maybe? I can occasionally go in through the back door—from a cached, Googled page, but it’s rare. And it’ll let me read a few threads, then BAM!

The problem is that I lose my Internet connection. It bogs down and comes to a halt while loading … Read More »
