I lost all five of my annual Oscar bets last night. I haven't done well for ages now. Which brings me to something else that always happen at this time of year.
From midnight on Tuesday night until Easter, my Lent sacrifice this year is going to be this: I'll give the homeless charity Shelter £100 every time I speak angrily, either in person or online. That includes blocking or defriending anyone on any social media. (Though I may walk away from the internet every now and then.) This occurred to me as a reasonable thing to do because, after the rows across SF fandom in the last two days, I cut off contact with several friends, and was annoyed at myself for having done so. Caroline is also quite pleased at the idea of me always seeking ways to express myself calmly at home. People I know online: please don't take this as a challenge.
Okay, I have a book to get back to. Until next time, Cheerio!
