Bye-Bye Snow

The rain made most of it melt, although places that had piles of snow are taking longer.

I'm very sleepy because I kept waking up last night and my hands hurt like crazy, so I may nap with Spirit when I finish online instead of re-watching Hogfather. I watched all three Librarian movies last night (on TNT), and so far, they've been coming out every two years which would mean a new one in 2010. They don't have any deep meaning or character demonstrations, but they're fun to watch.

Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

I've read this before, but it's more or less appropriate for this time of year.

You see, Hogfather, who wears a red robe, gives gifts to children on Hogswatch (the last day of the year), and whose sled is pulled by four pigs, has disappeared. DEATH has taken over because if people stop believing in Hogfather, he'll stop existing and then the sun will not come up on new year. DEATH gets his grand-daughter to help find out what happened and get Hogfather back. The professors at the University get involved, including HEX, the thinking machine, and find out why you never open doors that are marked to never be opened.

This is one of Pterry's really good books and although it's about belief, you don't need to have any specific belief to read it.
