I just finished listening to the audiobook of Ender's Game. What can I say about Ender's Game that hasn't already been said? I enjoyed it a lot. I think it says something about me that I would have LOVED being in Battle School at that age. Hell, I think I'd love being in Battle School now. I didn't like the whole thing with Peter and Valentine at first, but once they got into the whole Demosthenes and Locke thing I was sold on it.

Also, I want to name my son Andrew and call him Ender. Is that wrong?

I'm really glad I listened to the audiobook on this one because there's a part at the end where Orson Scott Card talks about how he came up with the idea and the process, and then says that the audiobook version is the way he wants people to experience Ender's Game. I was happy to have experienced it like that. It was really well done. It wasn't quite dramatized, but it had a reader's theater quality to it that was nice.

Will definitely read the comics now.
SO, first things first. I'm getting a good mortgage at a crazy low interest rate with money provided by the Federal Home Loan Bank's first time home buyer grant for part of my down payment. The total monthly payment comes out to less than the rent for a two bedroom appartment. You have NO IDEA how excited I am by this. After seven months of anticipation, hard work, and penny pinching, I'm just glad that the home buying process is moving along, let alone working in my favor. By the end of May I can finally start enjoying the fruits of my labor.

Now, since that's not really what I tend to talk about in this LJ, let me talk about something that I normally do talk about here, and that's role playing games!

Yeah! )
