Random Thoughts: Hugo Awards, Humor, and Woodward

Posted on February 28, 2013 10:25 am

Chris Christie often gets dis-invited from things, but it’s usually all you can eat buffets.

Since I hope to be a published SF author soon, how does one get nominated for a Hugo and how much does it pay?

I wish I had to cut expenses by only 2%.

If Steam erased all local data, that would be a big deal. Kindle doing that means I lose about a minute downloading it again.

Well, I am reading a Sandman graphic novel. That would take longer.

Everyone has their vision of how things should be. The tough question is what can realistically be done to move in that direction.

I always love the occasional left-wing article on why conservatives can’t be funny. The left can be insecure about such things.

Admittedly, 75% of conservative humor is laughing at poor people falling down stairs.

It’s funny on a number of different levels. Like, how did poor people afford a place with a 2nd story?

I stand athwart history yelling, “Mop!” The best way to stop history is to confuse it.

Our generation isn’t tasked with beating the Nazis or the Soviets – we just need to cut government spending. And that’s too much to ask.

If someone is being forced to pay you more than your work is worth, then that’s just welfare.

So what’s next for the left to prop up Obama? Say Nixon was just a victim of the evil Woodward?

Oh. I also got an email from the WH saying, “You’ll regret doing this.” I just thought it was more of their fundraising spam.

Would have been cooler if the White House told Woodward that he’d, “Rue the day!”

A real White House threat would have involved killing Woodward’s cat with a drone strike.

Having finished 1st draft of another novel, I’m having fun writing a humorous SF short story. No idea what I’ll do with it when I’m done.

    i think the threat to woodward was actually delivered by pelosi and went something like, “i’ll get you my pretty, and your little dog, too.”

    Do you wash your hands after using the bathroom?
    Then why don’t you wash you mind after viewing political propaganda?

    As far as being nominated for a Hugo, you could still try for this year’s, but you might want to let people read it first, since the deadline is in two weeks.

    I understand there’s a nice tie pin associated with being nominated.

  11. Alypius says:

    Well, go on then! Start rueing!

  12. CCO says:

    Oh perhaps, one day we might all look on this day with chagrin?
