February is such a short month. I swear, it just started yesterday and now we're almost at the end of it. Every year around this period in Hugo nominations I start to freak out that there is. Just. NOT. Enough. Time!

Yeah, my reading is not slowing down anytime soon.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
