My McAfee security center is warning me of a potential virus that makes your computer restart continuously.

Sounds familiar, huh?

It's called W32/IRCbot.worm!

How would I find it? Perhaps I'll start with a virus scan.

"Transamorous," or "transam," meaning folks who are attracted to transfolks.

I've been wanting a word for us!

This was mentioned at the Transgender Sexualities workshop, led by Helen Boyd and her husband Betty.

Love it, use it, pass it along!

In a day, I read The Ice Queen by Alice Hoffman. She's one of my favorite non-genre fiction writers, as I mentioned yesterday. She does a certain level of magical realism, which I like a lot. The Ice Queen centered around two themes - lightning strikes, and fairy tales. I knew a little bit about the former because of having read A Match to the Heart by Greta Ehrlich, and the latter has been a lifelong interest of mine.
I liked the story a lot, it had some interesting ideas and visuals. Here's my favorite quote:
"Isn't that the center of every story? The search for the truth. The need to know. Tear off the sealskin, the donkeyskin, the feathers, the shackles. In the moonlight, starlight, lamplight, bluelight. Wasn't that what everyone wanted: to see and hear. Take the veil from my eyes. The stones from within my ears. Turn me around twice. Tell me. No matter the consequence. No matter the price. At least until it has to be paid. At least until the price blinds you, deafens you, burns you alive." p108
Three stars. Very solid.

Yesterday I also saw Just Like Heaven with [ profile] redjo. It was a sweet movie. As always, Reese Witherspoon delivered a good performance. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing really special either IMO. Still, nice to see a sweet movie on a date.
