I think it's fair to say that the sciences were never Cap's strong suit.

This Fictional Me

So, yesterday I came across this book, which startled me somewhat. The only other Jon Hansen of any note I ever knew about was the fire chief at the Oklahoma City bombing from waay back when. Yes, the web tells me there are many others out there, mostly in South Dakota, Denmark and other parts beyond.

(Although now I see I was also the United Nations Secretary General in one of those rapture-Left-Behind-style books. Apparently my character was "extremely charismatic, popular and altruistic," as is only right. Of course, he also dies in a chopper crash in Pakistan. So there's that.)

Anyhoo, my first thought was, dear God, don't let this book become popular enough to be made into a movie. Nothing against Ms. Rogers, but I have no interest in having my name turned into the equivalent of 'Harry Potter.'

I really should work harder at making a name for myself. You'd never see a book called "Neil Gaiman and the Cyborg Hordes of Dreamland," unless it was a biography.

Flashy Wordy Words

Am starting to amuse myself with GoodReads, because I'm like that (yes, I know everyone else has already been there, gotten bored or not, and left or not; bite me). Just playing with the widgets. Here, what I've read, either very recently or back in the past but had close to hand or mind:

Jon's bookshelf: read

More of Jon's books »
Jon's  book recommendations, reviews, quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists

My new challenge in restraining myself will be keeping from going back and entering the rest of my books. Because I'm not made out of tachyon particles, you know. I may settle on adding a widget somewhere. Because every webpage needs more of those.
