Forgot to mention yesterday that travel_icontest closed voting (winners here), the theme was trains (we were given pictures) and my two entries were:
The first of those actually picked up a few votes, too :)
And the other thing I did yesterday was finish another book: "Grantville Gazette" edited by Eric Flint. It's a collection of short stories set in the 1632 universe (small town in modern US transplanted to Germany in 1632, Plucky Americans Do Good). Whilst I enjoy the stories, and even the concept, I sometimes find this series/universe to be a bit too Happy Ending for me. And a bit too Rah! Rah! USA!, but then I guess it's gonna be given the concept (if it was a small town from the UK it would end up Rah! Rah! UK! in a different (as our culture's not quite the same) but equally annoying way, I think). And there's nothing wrong with positive stories. I just find it better in small doses, so I'll likely never buy any of these in a dead-tree format.
