a hint about my brain

Things I've read recently (and pointed remark about head shaving)

Well as well as my mcse course notes (2 exams left, currently my average score is 91%) I've also read a load of books :)

Alison Bechdel's Fun House, which is a really good autobiographical story about her relationship with her dad.

David Petersen's Mouse Guard (Fall 1152) which is both really sweet and cute and also pretty brutal. So do I wait until Winter 1152 is collected or get it in comic form. Argghh (yes we all know the answer is both)

Harry Potter 3-5 (still really really good, and I left 6&7 at home or would have gone through them as well)

30 days of Night. Kinda meh really.

Y the last man (books 3&4) I'd read 1 and 2 awhile ago and never really got round to buying anymore, and had forgotten that it was really good. Will be getting the rest over time when I get home as it's now finished.

Just started Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts, which is a short story collection of horror stories (although the introduction says they are not all horror) well read the first and on the second and it's really good so far. I had picked up his novel (Heart shaped box) a few months ago, and that was far better than a story about an aging death metal singer who bought a ghost should be. I had first heard of him in Neil Gaiman's blog, and figured I would give him a go. (I tried this before with Suzanne Clarke who Neil had also raved about, unfortunately I just cannot get through Johnathan Strange & Mr. Norrell)

Also as it's getting fairly close to me shaving my head for charity it would be nice if someone donated some cash
