What? It's Monday already?

Damn daylight savings time stole an hour of my weekend. Why don't we "spring forward" at, say, 4 pm Friday? Someone should look into this.

Last week's quote was, of course, from the 1985 film Real Genius, as all you "Pacific Tech" alums should have recognized instantly. The new quote is Difficulty: Formidable (4 points).


Hmm, this one has me stumped. And now curiousity as to what it's from sets in. :) Unfortunately my usual source isn't bringing up any possible matches, which leads me to ponder what type of quotes are hard to google for. I'd bet movie quotes are the easiest and book quotes are the hardest (depending on how popular/old the book is).

Yeah, this quote seems to have been more difficult that I expected. Maybe I should have assigned it a higher difficulty? Nah, I know that some of my readers have encountered the quote before.

I've given up...I still want to know what the quote is that you chose not to use!

Don't worry; its moment will come.

I'm thinking it's from a book- that's about as far as I get right now =p

(C.S Freidman?)

I won't confirm or deny that it's from a book, but it's not C.S. Friedman. (Great author, though!)

My bet is also on a book, but it doesn't feel familiar so i'm having trouble knowing where to start. :) Hmm... must refine my internet search techniques...

Oh yeah, have you read any Lois McMaster Bujold?

No, I haven't. Should I add one of her books to The Pile? It's looking a bit diminished lately, in no small part because I just pulled Quicksilver out.

Speaking of C.S. Friedman,

My roomate has been playing Xenogears the other day and I found myself idly comparing and contrasting the respective religious themes and otherworldly sci-fi and fantasy settings of Xenogears and the Coldfire trilogy.

It was a long and twisted journey, which I feel would be more rewarding to take on your own than for me to explain it. It was close enough to working that I was on to something, and yet far enough from working that I was quite possibly on drugs.
