Meet the New Roof

Not the same as the old roof:

The new roof is made of dimensional shingles, which my wife tells me are better and more durable than regular shingles (these came with a 30-year warranty in any event). Krissy also got them in green to match the house trim. It looks very nice, I think. Hopefully this will be the end of all roof problems forever, or for at least 30 years, which is also fine.

Saturday #BookHaul

I just completed today’s #BookHaul; more than a dozen books including work from China Mieville, Ian McDonald, Chris Roberson, Chuck Palahnuik and Anne Bishop. It’s here.

Is she pensive? Or just very interested in the finch at the bird feeder? Twitter feed notwithstanding, we may never know.

Update: Oh, and look — an homage.
