So, Gentle Reader, I've been playing about with a Parasol Protectorate Quiz and here it is.
It's not jiving quite right with Facebook, Livejournal, and co, so I may redo it for internals. But who knows if I'll get the time. Sorry if it doesn't quite work for you, it seems to be happy on the second try, but I had fun making it.
In other news I (utterly unsurprisingly) lost the Locus Award
to Mr. Bag'o'doughnuts
himself. *Shakes tiny fists of furry into the air, throws head back and yells "Paolo-o-o-o-o-o!"* In all honesty, I adore this guy and I have a sinking feeling his book actually is genius, so I don't mind. But he totally owes me a chocolate martini.Gail's Daily Dose
