psyche29: A brown eye with rainbow eyeliner all around it (Default)
1. Happy St. Patrick's day, flist! I haven't got a drop of Irish in me - and no, I don't particularly want any at the moment, thanks - but I'm wearing green anyway so as to avoid being pinched, because DAMN, people pinch hard! And as everyone is generally aware, I am pain-phobic. Because they always go for my upper arms! WTF is up with that?! God, those are the worst place EVER to poke me, pinch me, even TOUCH me with anything smaller than an entire hand. Ahem. Sorry, rant over.

2. It's Wednesday, but it feels like Tuesday. I want to say the time change is at fault for this, but it's really because I stayed home with Mike yesterday and it's apparently thrown me off. *rolls eyes at self*

3. A little bit of promo: the forum I participate on, Obliviate, is sorely in need of members. So few of our people go there now, and we've been contemplating shutting it down, which none of us really want. It's really not Harry Potter-oriented anymore - we discuss many various things, although it's harder when the four or five of us who still go there have said most of what we think already. We would LOVE some new blood in there, and I especially would enjoy it because I truly love it there and think that others would, too. We are friendly and welcoming and open; there's a serious/debate section and sections for books, movies, general lives and silly games. There's also an arcade with some fun games that are great for loosening the tension when you have a few minutes, and a market as well. Please feel free to check it out!

4. I went to Half-Price Books last week and found about twenty Betty Neels books - she's one of my very favorite Harlequin romance authors. I managed to narrow it down to four that I ended up buying, and I've now read every one of the four and added it to my swiftly-growing Betty Neels collection.

5. I also went to the library last Saturday and picked up The Screwtape Letters (CS Lewis) and The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) since I never got around to picking them up the last time I had them on hold, Bridget Jones's Diary (Helen Fielding), What Jesus Meant: The Beautitudes and a Meaningful Life (Eric Kolbell), a website-building-for-dummies book, and Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie (Maggie Stiefvater).

I've gotten a few pages into Bridget Jones and been giggling, and last night I opened and read several pages of The Alchemist, which is lovely so far. I also have What Jesus Meant in my shoulder bag because I really do want to read it and will be more inclined to do so if there's nothing else in there to distract me while I'm out.

I've got maybe a chapter or two left of Born Round and still have From the Kingdom of Memory and The Golden Compass to be getting on with, as well.

Why, oh WHY do I keep checking out so many books? I'm telling you, it's a sickness. Can I just please move into the library?

6. Huh. I think that's everything for the moment! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
