I noticed

that I write "just saying" a lot.

I was also perusing older/ancient entries, and I marveled at my ingenuity and witty dialogue (with myself, usually). I need to bring the wit back, yo.

Just saying.

In other news, Mina has a gimpy left foot. Being the essential oil guru that I am not, I rubbed a mixture on her foot and am hoping for the best. We're also inhaling some clary sage and clove oil. Not literally but via better living through aromatherapy. Let us all pray and hope that Mina's foot is better by tomorrow morning so her mother does not need to spend another several hundred dollars in vet bills. 

I'm also on restricted membership with my library. Apparently, when I was in Mexico, I neglected to return four books and chalked up a $7.00 fine. It's my all time record. I haven't paid it yet, either (but I have returned the books). This restricted access label has put a damper (funny) on my reading bonanza. I suppose I will traipse down to the library tomorrow (or one day) and pay off the "EXORBITANT HOW WILL I PAY RENT?!?" library fee.

OMG I just asked you why you weren't posting excerpts in one of your replies to one of my entries! Too funny. (See, you're still witty.)

BTW - You are welcome to any book on my bookshelf (I am not linking it because I am assuming you have it bookmarked *stern look*) any book that is marked "availiable." Ask and ye shall receive.
You won't even need to send them back - you can just...leave them somewhere...

Bookcrossers are better than libraries and we don't charge you. :o)

It's like we're on the same brain wavelength. Or something.

There's that Bookcrossers business again! Is it okay to NOT put books up? I don't think I can part with any of my current collection. Okay, maybe a few. Maybe.

Scary, ain't it?

Is it ok not to register books to your shelf, you mean? You certainly don't have to - but I find it a convenient way to keep track of them. Just because a book is registered on BC doesn't mean you have to release it. My permanent collection books are registered and no way I'm letting them go.

I'm already sending you a book (just have to get my lazy ass to the PO), which I want you to release after you read it. You might find releasing books addictive, actually. I've picked up free and $.50 books for the express purpose of leaving them somewhere. Sometimes I read them, sometimes I don't.

Go to my shelf and click "available" and pick two books. I will send them. You will journal, read, and release them (whenever you get around to it), and it will be much fun and will not cause you "omg I can't just leave my books lying around for other people - they're my booooks!" anxiety. Because they're my books, technically.

Also - the people at BC are amazing. I have a very naughty Australian vegan friend you can swap recipes with. :o)

From your entries that I've read I'd have to say that I don't really think your main weapon is wit. (If you somehow read that as meaning that I think you're a half-wit then you're wrong. Well, you may be right; I'm pretty sure you could take it to mean that but that's not what I meant. Really. Uhuh.) When I think of wit I think of people like Oscar Wilde and stuff. Your mode is mainly sarcasm and irony and you use it in a way that, in general, makes you funny.

Let's phrase that in a less wordy way: I think you're sarcastic and funny but not necessarily witty.

Just saying...

Oh, piffle.

Details, details, details.

I beat you
I owe my library $8.00 for books I could not return while I was ill. I keep forgetting to make it to the library while they're still open to pay my fines off. :[ Everytime I get the chance to go they've already closed.

I'm a bad person.

Re: I beat you
You win!

I don't keep forgetting, I keep procrastinating. Can't fathom why, the library is like two feet from my house (by two feet, I mean a five minute walk).

My next contest will be to see who can pay their library fine first!
