In Search of the Iron Horse
First there is the autumn to remember, and the smell of barley and rain. She has been here before, has felt the air like damp leather, though she had forgotten it. The cloudy guest room at the aunt's colonial-style house is messy, a shirt draped over the chair, a pair of pants laid across the yellow-stained chest of an ironing board, an amber wine glass on the white table with the linen sheets, and Mom and Dad are getting ready; Dad combing his hair and whiskers with the precision he applied to all tasks, Mom primping absently in the mirror as though she were still Miss Missouri, 1974.
The girl is on her back, staring at the ceiling and feeling the weight: the weight of the soggy New York state air on her breath, which she is not used to; the weight of the baseball, the smoothed sphere and nibbling stitches, rolling back and forth like the moon across her white belly; and the weight of anticipation and apprehensive hope. Her head rests in the

Wow, it's been a while since I updated this! Insert the usual excuses of exam 'stress', the infinitely reuasable 'Get out of Jail free card' on the internet. Seriously though, leaving cert coming up and all that. For the first time ever, I've been forced to prioritize.

I'm trying to save up for some form of Apple laptop, whether it be a 'so cheap it must be crap oh wait this isn't Dell we're talking about' iBook or a 'good God I want one of those' Powerbook G4. I recently discovered eBay, where I found laptop on sale that are four times as good as what I've got now for the same price as what I paid for my new one. I'm gonna take the plunge and buy a Mac because they just last so long - my old iMac 350Mhz can apparenty still run the latest version of Mac OS X, which is pretty damn impressive. Try running Windows XP on some crappy Pentium 2 and see what happens!

To get money, I've started trying to sell stuff on eBay (tinyurl.com/2j7jmj). Feel free to initiate a desperate bid war on one of my items, making me rich beyond my wildest dreams (or alternatively just buy the books for 3.50. That's a bargain right there!).

Writing - the next chapter of CWG will be done sometime before the exams start, most likely. I've also started to write the down the beginnings of short sci-fi stories, with the aim of trying to get them published. Fingers crossed!

EDIT: Oh, and I should probably mention my joy at the fact that Marvel decided to kill off Captain America. I don't particularly like American comics (excpept for Fables, which is great), and I've always hated Captain America. How can you take a character seriously when he's dressed in an outfit like that? I'm hoping Marvel will make my dream come true and kill off Thor and the entire Fantastic Four as well. Actually, just get rid of all of them except Wolverine, who gets to live on account of the fact that he doesn't wear a Power Ragners-esque costume any more (mostly).

Dublin City Council is to introduce a ban on eleven breeds of dog from properties including houses, flats and estates, with immediate effect.

The breeds are: English Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, Rottweiler, German Shepherd (Alsatian), Doberman, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Japanese Akita, Bull Mastiff, Japanese Tosa and Bandog. Cross-breeds of these dogs or crosses of these dogs with any other breed are also banned.

Owners will be given the opportunity to rehouse the dogs but if alternative accommodation cannot be found for they will be destroyed.

"Citizens against Dog ban "

please take the time to sign the petition and read ANVIL's website for updates. This is discrimination against council tenants as well as any responsible owner of one of these breeds.

lol, glad you agree! I don't think Jubilee is really in the comics, is she? Either way, they need to kill off like half the cast ;)
