Five Things for Thursday, October 1st

1.  I’ve wanted a Saturn Sky for a long time.  I fell in love with the design, which made it look like a smaller version of the Mach V.  I saw it for the first time on Project Runway, after Jay won the first season and received it as a prize.  I wanted one right after that, but never bought one for 2 reasons: one, my car is paid off and will probably last another 4 years minimum, making the idea of having to make a car payment slightly sickening, and two, after owning a Toyota, I was afraid of getting something that could be a mechanical nightmare.  So I never bought one, and now I never will.  Goodbye, Saturn Sky and all the other Saturn models I never would have bought.  I was pulling for you.

2.  Does it make sense to feel a pang of loss when learning that a Sim has passed away?  It may be strange, but that’s what I felt. 

3.  Steven Erikson is the greatest living fantasy writer.  Bar none.  George R. R. Martin may have once had a shot at the title, but he stopped writing 5 years ago.

4.  That said, when Game of Thrones is on HBO, I will pay for the channel.

5.  Life is short.  Stuff a mushroom.
