Fewer than last year, which feels odd, though I suppose I also started doing a lot more fiction writing this year, which sort of makes up for it, or is at least interestingly different. Need to step up with the French though.

I almost didn't make [community profile] 50books_poc this year, but pulled it out in the end. Next year I'm aiming for not reading ALL THE SHORT STORIES in the final week of December, but at least my streak isn't broken! (Four years!

And I still can't believe that the Canes actually won after I abandoned them to go out last night, so let us consider it an omen for the new year or something pleasantly manufactured like that. May have to download it, I'm sure Tripp lost his shit over Sasha's goal and he was already loopy enough early on. John, in case you missed it, is apparently Mr. Bubbles and Tripp had far too many details on his bathing habits available off the top of his head. ;) In other hockey news of last night, I managed to have a conversation at the party with someone who thought Phil Kessel was a goalie, which is a good trick in Toronto, I think. Otoh, the party was graced by the host's giant Bruins flag decor, so Toronto: hockey diverse is perhaps the message. (He's from Ottawa, technically, which I don't think makes any more sense of it.) I still don't know how to talk hockey with non-fannish types, but the alcohol helps.
