Library student, but close enough for most. ;) (and I end up answering a lot of e-reader reference questions)

Yep, you can deauthorize it from your Amazon account. Not entirely sure where, as I'm not a Kindle owner, but I found it for a patron once.

Good luck! I accidentally left mine after the Locke & Key panel at SDCC, but the lovely young man who found it called the number I'd written in its cover and got it back to me. Gave me renewed faith in humans. Hope yours will do the same now that you've contacted them.

My history with gaming has been a convoluted one, but is trending positive. As a kid/high schooler, I didn't have a gaming system, beyond a few computer things. So when I hung out with some of the kids of my parents' friends, I ended up getting teased for being bad at it. I let this get to me and gave up on gaming. In college, I decided to try out D&D instead and had several lovely years with that. But then we graduated and my group moved to Seattle. We've tried a bit of gaming online since, but it's hard. Just in the last year, I suddenly discovered that some local acquaintances were really into games like Settlers and Ticket to Ride. I bought Munchkin Cthulhu and we play that together too. As a bonus, we also discovered we love Doctor Who and BSG and other geeky television. Suddenly, there are gaming nights and Who-watching parties in my schedule. Over the summer, I started gaming on Steam--Cthulhu Saves the World, Portal, Torchlight, Dungeon Defenders...and hopefully Portal 2 later this week. At 26, I'm gaming more than I ever have in my life and loving it.

That's horrifying. It was very pleasant meeting you at the w00tstock signing, though I'm sure the whole experience was exhausting for all of you after you'd just been performing. From that experience, I can say that you're definitely NOT a dick to all the people who patiently queued and briefly talked to you--the ones who played by the rules instead of stalking you. Should stalkers try to insinuate otherwise, the rest of us can set them straight. Sorry you had to go through that...I hope your overall 2011 Con memories are positive ones.

Thanks, Zen-raven, that's a great way of putting it! @Wil, I couldn't figure out a way respond to that either, and got another comment to that effect on my blog. So I just left it. *sigh* Also, it looks like the person took down the book. Hoping that after my complain with Amazon goes through, people will get their money back as well--though a person on Twitter reported being able to return the book because he only bought it in the last 7 days.

I agree. My mother developed terminal carcinoid cancer (which generally develops in the intestines) while doctors were chasing IBS and finally Celiac and a lot of other things without ever running the simple blood test that would diagnose her cancer. So it was caught far too late.

My sophomore year of college, my best friend and I were a complete mess. My problem was pretty easy to figure out (but hard to solve)--depression. He, on the other hand, was often tired, weak, sick. He was athletic, but some days he'd nearly pass out from pushing on when he shouldn't have. Once when I visited him in his dorm room, I found blood on his sheets and he said he had been bleeding anally (rectally?). It was incredibly scary because he would test negative for mono, cancer, etc. The health center kept taking blood tests...and all through this he only thought his stomach could handle oatmeal, so he would eat just that and get even sicker. Had this been years ago, he might've died from "wasting." Thank goodness someone finally suggested it might be Celiac. Within a few months he was strong and healthy again, though he has to keep a gluten-free diet from now on. It's a scary disease when unknown and untreated.
