Here's the reslut...
I finished watching Part II and Part III1 of Children of Dune last night (in the last of four one-hour segments). I've actually been very busy with work, but watching Fremen princesses trask everything in sight with crysknives is always good fun, as yodge can testify.
Somehow masteralida triggered my realization that miajesbar and I are preincarnations of the Atreides twins. Stranger things have happened, I suppose, but at any rate, I really have not been able to slow down or stop running since!
