I found it interesting that while October Daye #2 was rather lackluster, the third book in the series, An Artificial Light was great - which makes me wonder if I should go back to old fantasy series that I dropped and pick up with the books after the ones that I gave up on. Maybe the authors had issues in RL or writing which caused the quality to fall, albeit temporarily?
 I look at LJ stats now and then and there was a very weird spike on the 12th for just three hours which made me all o_O 'cause 1) I hadn't posted for several days and 2) individual visits and lj users didn't change an iota, so it was like a person or a site...downloaded all the entries on my LJ *paranoia creeps up* D: D:
 My interest in SPN fell after the first and second season, mainly 'cause of the plot direction and Jared's acting skills (or lack thereof)
So I was surprised by how much the anime trailer worked for me - not just for the awesome blend action and elements of horror but 'cause Dean's mannerisms remind me of Jensen who I ♥ and there's enough of a departure from the original source material that the annoyances didn't surface. Looking forward to the first episode in Jan!
 Am thinking of using a background pattern and came across several on patterncooler that I'm thinking about: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7
The nifty thing about the site is that you can input color codes from your own color schemes and the site will generate the backgrounds for you - which can save a lot of time experimenting in photoshop TBH :D
