So I read a fun YA book last night (Alanna: The First Adventure) and this morning went to the public library to check out the sequel. IT WASN"T THERE. The library let OTHER PEOPLE check out the book I wanted to read??? Libraries are so unfair!!!
My siblings and I earned our first DVD player (edit: actually VCR player) by digging dandelions out of our yard, five cents per root that measured an inch or longer. That remains one of my prouder accomplishments. #saturdayFF
Mostly I skim the Times Literary Supplement. Every so often a sentence comes along that makes me glad I bother. Today, a nasty burn at the end of a review: "Come Christmas, this will make a vindictively disappointing present." *whistles*
