I've become so disillusioned with Facebook it isn't pretty. And in any case, I never intended Facebook to take over my online life. So I'm doing what some of my friends do--FB is there for quick notes and silliness, and keeping in touch with family. This place is for my longer thoughts, but primarily it's for the stuff I don't want to put on my wordpress blog, which is, until such time as I decide I won't be publishing, destined to be my "author persona blog," and so I don't put some of my thoughts there. I'm looking into getting the Wordpress stuff posted here as well.

Anyway. I found out there is a thing called Diet Caffeine-free Dr Pepper. And I found some in my local supermarket (one of the few benefits of our west coast superstores is that one can find practically anything in their cavernous inventories). And it's pretty good. I won't be buying it all the time, because health, but when I need/want soda, it's a good choice.

I'm back writing again, after a hiatus of about a week. A scene was kicking my ass, but it's done now. I'll probably make it better in draft 2, but for now, it's finished. Onward!

My brother, who was born in California but has not lived here for many years, keeps calling California "Cali." This is not a thing Californians call our state, but it's apparently pretty common elsewhere. It grates on my nerves almost as much as when people call my native city "Frisco." Grrrr.

Got both a new, very nice bicycle for my birthday, and an Xbox One. Both are awesome. Played Titanfall for a while last night; it was way more fun than I expected.

Very excited about the new wave of Starfighter Combat sims that are coming in the next year. Of course, that means I'll need to build or buy a new PC. Not hurrying on that score though. Mostly for budget reasons, but also because I need to write more than I need to fly. For now.

Hrm. I would like to change this username--Mahdi was chosen when all it reflected was my fanboy-ness over Dune, but now I'd like something a little less... I don't know. I'd probably have done it already, except for the cost. Not that I can't afford the $15, it just makes me wait until I've got something I really want to use.
