Yay, we just got the first snowfall of the season. Mind you, it's a Saturday, so no classes were canceled. Unfortunately, I bet classes wouldn't be cancelled anyways, so I'd have to walk to them in the cold if it were a weekday... hmm. I tried to take some good pictures, but my camera's battery was dead. So I had to go buy some more AAs to charge it up. We got some pretty big flakes coming down at one point, and for a while we had a nice layer on the sidewalks and everything. I walked down to the local Barns n Nobles during the main stream of it, and while it was cold, it was kinda cool too. What I don't know is how I kept getting snowflakes in my eyes when I'm wearing glasses! But it's died down now, so we're getting more of a cold rain and strong winds... not nearly as much fun to walk through. Hope it dies down by Monday, 'cause I do not want to walk through that to class.
On another note, while I was at the bookstore, I happened to see that they had Downfall in stock.
So, now I have it, read it through once and a few parts twice. It's much better than the comics for sure... if you thought the last comic was emotional, this book tops it. I would love to write a strong review of it, but I'm unsure about the spoilers necessary for it, so I'll keep it to myself for now. (But as a note, Maxillos has a bunch of good lines this time 'round.) I'm not sure I'd rate it as one of the greatest Bionicle books ever, but it certainly tops out this year's selection.
Now I have that cursed free-time parasite known as homework. Must have an operation done to remove it.
