Carrots wait for no one, so I pick them now, before they are eaten by some slobby cow. If you sang it in your head, your childhood was awesome. (It's Bugs Bunny, by the way.)
I stopped by the thrift store on Tuesday. Snagged 12 books for $4 - 8 paperbacks and 4 hardcovers. Yay. I got an Alastair MacLean I didn't have. And an Agatha Christie I needed. I found a Michael Crichton I hadn't even heard of. Oh, and a Phyllis Whitney for the collection. I picked up a couple new-to-me authors and some old favorites, too. I love thrift store day. I also got the third book in a trilogy where I already own the second book. The hunt for the first book is ongoing. When I have them all, I'll read them. Yes, I could just order the damn first book, but that's not the point.
To date, I have acquired 103 books this year and spent $22.70. (The majority of which were free ebooks, by the way.) Thus proving you don't have to spend a lot of money to read. Ahem, yes, there are libraries, but I don't use them. I don't like returning books. I also don't like the fact that our libraries have become more internet cafes (minus the beverage) and daycare centers than actual places to revel in books. But that's me. If I want to read a book, I'll own the damn book. If I like it, I get to keep it. If I don't, I donate it to one of the local thrift stores so someone else can enjoy it.
The mulching and bagging of leaves was a success. Hubs plans to continue it throughout the leaf season.
This new blogger thingy is a pain in my ass. It automatically puts a line between paragraphs, so I have to now adjust myself and stop putting in a line. Which also means when I'm typing stuff elsewhere I have to adjust to put the line IN after I've typed something here where I don't have to put a line in. Stupid. Gah, why won't people just leave shit alone?
By the way, I still put two spaces between sentences in my writing. Period, space space. It's how I type. Changing back to one space now would be a serious pain in my ass. I fix this in my writing by having Word find the double space and change it to one space (Find: space space, Replace With: space) when I'm formatting my books for publication.
We had another buck in the yard yesterday. A spike. I missed seeing him, but Hubs told me all about it. Apparently, his spikes go straight up. Pokey head.
Today's the last day for wearing my favorite t-shirt. It's become so ratty, it needs to retire. =o( Sad how just when a shirt becomes the most comfortable, it's time to shift it to the dustrag bag.
Okay, your turn. This n that to your heart's content.
