I'm sitting here trying to recollect exactly when I gave myself permission to stop exercising. It must have been at least two months back, but it feels like six.
Yesterday, I received the following email from 박경범 in Korea (South, I assume). The subject line reads, "About the novel following the movie story!":
This is a very malicious international cheat. People at the country that teach Beowulf at educational courses can know that this is nothing but a twisted story and not the real beowulf. But at other countries, many people can know that the famous Beowulf is this twisted story. Beowulf is a masterpiece for all mankind, not can be ridiculed by some rash story twister. Please stop this international cheat. You should at least attach an adjective before the subject 'beowulf'. I am a writer in Korea. Wrote a novel about Beowulf.
So, I suppose that disclaimer I tacked onto the end of the novelization wasn't enough for some people. Or maybe it wasn't included in the Korean edition (though I'm betting it was). Either way, there you go.
Byron came over last night, and after we watched last week's ep of Torchwood, we watched Battlestar Galactica: Razor. Frankly, had I known the thing was coming out on DVD on December 4th, I'd have waited for the DVD and saved myself having to sit through all those Quizno's commercials. Anyway, that said, I thought it was quite good, better than most of the second and third seasons. I think I actually liked it enough to pick up the DVD, though I own none of the rest of the series. I can only hope the pacing and attention to character we saw in Razor is reflected in the series' forthcoming and final season (which begins here in the US in March).
If you have not yet pre-ordered a copy of the new 3rd edition of Tales of Pain and Wonder, I hope that you will do so soon.
All right, platypus. Looks like we have a story to finish.
