Nice day today. I got my books from Amazon.
I can finally finish Sandman! The Kindly Ones volume looks huuuuge, so that's a good deal. Main problem - My bookshelves are quite past the point of saturation. Time for more bookshelves! That'll involve cleaning the spare room more and turning it back into the bedroom it was intended. That's definitely on my yearly plan next to making sure my fledging idea for a website happens.
Aside from volume 8 and 9 of Sandman, I received volume 2 of Hidamari Sketch. It'll be on my bed, sitting on my pillow. It's not quite a "so ronery" shrine but it's nice to have cuteness as one of the last things I see before I fall asleep.
And then, because part of me totally is Patchy, I went to the library for more books.
But, this time, stuff I needed (mostly). Two books on my author for the Wed class and one on phonetics which is organized by letter. And then I got a 3000 page book of American Literature from the Colonial Period to the Romance Period. And I just got it cause I saw it :-p. No other reason than that.
I added 3 more disks of Twelve Kingdoms to my queue and I did a little more phonetics reading. Other than that...I was curious about the plane that ditched in the Hudson River.
It was fricking cool! I'm a side nerd about plane disasters. And I know how F-ing hard it is to ditch a plane in water. It never works quite how you wish. There's so many variables. Especially when the plane is in trouble anyway. I cannot remember a single incident when a plane of this size has ditched perfectly without damage or death. Then again, I was wondering how they said the river was slushy. That probably helped keep it afloat. As I said, really fricking cool. Now that's a plane crash I can really enjoy. And a pilot to appreciate.
After my allergy shot today, I got supper at the mall for everything and while there, I picked up a 2009 day calender. One in particular caught my eye....Lio ....vampires, ghosts, and undead bunnies <3.
I've been reading Firmin (the literary rat novel). It's hard to dislike it. But it sometimes tries too hard. But there are moments apart from all the gushing of literature and clever little verbage...when you see the same little love of books that you can connect with and universal human fear and weakeness. But it's still weird to see a rat who wants to kiss Ginger Rogers...
