City on a Hill

Sadly, what I am overlooking from my hill is not nearly as poetic as the original city on a hill concept, but instead a massive floodplain.  Fortunately, the Iowa River crested earlier and lower than expected.  I am perfectly safe, and not as stuck as I thought I was.  But, since one of my close friends is visiting me for a while, I’ve been a little off the map in the blogosphere.  Expect a “normal” post in a few days, but please stick around!  I’ve enjoyed seeing comments from so many new people recently.

Things I’m interested in reading/learning more about at the moment:

1) Agriculture/World Hunger/a book called The End of Food

2) Comedy/humour.  Laughter is good for me.

3) Fantasy books, especially urban fantasy

4) Books about different gender systems, especially in cultures around the world

5) Lesbian fiction
