Cephalopod Coffee House

This month I read Hull Zero Three by Greg Bear. In the far future a ship is drifting through space. It's mission: to find and colonize a new planet. On this ship a man awakens with no memory of who he is or why he's there. Almost immediately the lights begin to go out, and with life support failing he's rescued by a young girl who is even more of a mystery than himself. He soon learns that something has gone very wrong on the ship, and along with the strange girl he must make his way to Hull Zero Three to find out what happened to the promise of a new world.

When I started reading Hull Zero Three, I felt as if it was very similar to the movie Pandorum. For those who aren't familiar with the movie, it involves the same basic premise of a ship looking for a new home, a man awakening with no memory, and monsters roaming the halls intent on murdering anything out of place. However, the book very quickly moved out of that familiar territory and into something completely different. The premise hooked me and the action started immediately, leaving me wondering where we going with this, but after a while I kind of got tired of all the monsters and loose threads that dangled from the plot. The main character's purpose, and the disaster that crippled the ship are revealed eventually, but they come in the last third of the book and it didn't have much of an impact on me.

Don't get me wrong, I was entertained when I was reading Hull Zero Three. The writing is good, and the setting and action are well developed. But after I gave it some thought, I felt that the execution fell short. If you really like science fiction, give it a try, but if I was rating it, I'd have to give it three out of five bananas. Not great, but not bad either. But not great.

Review: A Change of Mind and Other Stories

Good Monday to all.

This week I'd like to share with you a short story collection I read over the weekend: A Change of Mind and Other Stories by Nick Wilford. Some of you may already know Nick from the local blogosphere, but if you don't you can visit him here

A Change of Mind and Other Stories is a collection of short stories and one novella. In  A Change of Mind (the novella), we're introduced to Reuben, a miserable man who goes through life expecting the worst out of people and getting everything he expected. He's resigned to living his miserable life until his miserable death until one day he's offered the chance to change it all. Confidence, popularity and happiness are just a surgical procedure away, but what happens when you change who you are?

The other tales are much shorter than the novella, but they all offer glimpses of people struggling with doubt, insecurity and loneliness. The collection isn't without it's humor; The Dog God, and A Hole in One are particularly absurd. All in all it's a great little collection.

You can find A Change of Mind and Other Stories on Amazon.
I wasn't sure what to write about today. I am trying to keep up with this weekly blogging thing, but man it's hard.

Still haven't been writing like I'm supposed to. In fact, after I post this I'll force myself to do 30 minutes of something on paper. I would go an hour, but I have to be up really early tomorrow (I'm writing this on Sunday night) for my first real 12 hour shift. I shadowed in my department for one day last week, but tomorrow I'll actually be expected to do something other than fetch linens and refill water pitchers.

Anyway, otherwise I'm doing all right (like you care). Maybe next week I'll have something more interesting to write about.

This is Chewy:

This is Chewy:
Monsieur Chew at three months

Chewy is a 45-ish pound 5 month old Pyrenees/Lab mix. His name is not short for Chewbacca, but I don't bother correcting people who think it is. He's named after his favorite activity. He's what dog people call "mouthy." When I take him for walks, he has to pick up every piece of trash he finds, as well as snapping at low hanging branches and any tall flowers he encounters. He loves to gnaw on bones, stuffed animals, rawhides, and table legs. It seems the Pyrenees in him has manifested in nipping at the backs of people's legs. The worst part is he spends a lot of time in the house just wandering from living room to kitchen looking for stuff to grab. He especially likes boxes and empty water/pop bottles. And because he's so tall already, he can reach pretty far back on the counters. Oh, and he loves "Scooby Snacks,"  my cutesy way of saying cat poop. What I'm saying is, putting things in his mouth is his defining characteristic. Constantly tracking his movements gets really old really fast.

But dagnabbit, I would miss shouting "No!" fifty times a day if he wasn't around.

IWSG





It's IWSG time again.

I'm with my usual insecurity: the fact that I haven't been writing at all. I posted on Monday that I am trying to get back into the blogging habit. At least if I do that, I'll be writing more often. Maybe not what I want to be writing, but at least it will get the juices flowing.

So, obviously I'm not going to write much more for now. I'll try to visit some of you out there as my blogger buddy duties have been sorely neglected as of late.

Have an affirming and productive month!

I'm trying to get back into the blogging habit, so I'm going to shoot for every Monday. Plus IWSG and the Cephalopod Coffee house. That's like [counts on fingers...carries the two...why is there a remainder?] six posts a month. I'm not going to really plan the types of posts I'll do. I'll just see where I end up. Just be prepared to hear me talk about myself - saying the same things over and over again - a lot.

It's summer time, school is out for everyone, and I'm still not writing like I should. It's not even writer's block; it's just writer's meh. I really need to set a schedule for myself, but I'm not one for setting my own schedule. I need structure imposed on me by an external force.

Things are looking better for me this month. After two months on unemployment, I have a new job starting next week. It was the first job I seriously went for, and I was surprised that I was hired. I will be working at the local hospital as a unit secretary/cardiac monitor tech/patient care assistant/whatever they tell me to do. Since I have no medical background, I thought the job was a long shot, but I figured since I was going to school for radiography, and I was likely going to work in a hospital in the future, I should at least try to get my foot in the door. I'm so ready to go back to work. This is the longest I've ever gone without a job since I was sixteen.

Not much else going on. I'll be back for IWSG on Wednesday.
