Probably not gonna correct the typos this time, sorry. A Thing I haven’t mentioned, is that my monitor screen has a… an echo, or a shadow – everything is repeated, palely, ten pixels to the right. A blur? I don’t know what to call it, but I’ve had this computer for about three months, and for about two months, I’ve had tense-as-hell trapezius muscles, and an unshakeable headache, most days. Today it occurred to me to wonder of the two facts are connected. Tomorrow I’ll call the computer store (thank Jehovah we bought local this time) and see if something can be done about it. No threat to the blogging, since I have several other computers to fall back on, though of course all my Stuff is on this one, so photos will be limited.
And I love you, truly I do, but I’m not going to type all those titles out. I just don’t have the time.
Here’s one you can read. It’s the shelf right next to my computer, and holds all my current career-relevant books (and some other stuff), but probably wasn’t what you meant when you thought you’d like to see my books, as it reveals only one aspect of my no doubt fascinatingly complex character. Yes I am too complex, and mysterious, and deep. And stuff. Just look at all those categories in the sidebar there!
Okay okay, one last try. This is one of the shelves in our living room, which actual public people sometimes see, so I’ve tried to keep the confusion minimal there. These aren’t exactly pre-filtered, much, they’re just the ones I unpacked first, when we still thought we’d have time to move in like organized people. The first picture is what happens when I unpack in a hurry and then a bunch of other books arrive in the mail and I jam them into whatever space I can find and swear I’ll organize them someday.
I signed up to Flickr just so I could post these, and they don’t show up as big as I want them. I’ll see if I can figure out how to fix that. This meme has kind of inspired me, and if I can ever get the camera charged, I may just scamper around the house photographing all our bookshelves, so you can see how terribly spoiled for choice I was. Egad, we have a lot of books. We also spend a lot of time complaining that we don’t have nearly enough books. It’s very sad.
Snape update: my 11-year-old nephew says he thinks Snape is evil. I think… I think JKR wants us to think he’s evil, maybe so that at the last minute she can whip a benevolent Snape out of a hat and surprise us all. Or, maybe, because he is evil. And as she has been obliging enough to write some very good books for us, I think I shall be obliging in return and believe what she wants.
But I really want him to be a good guy.
