I FAIL AT READING

No, seriously. I do.

I read 30 books this year. Thirty. That is like a marathon runner jogging 2 miles in the boston marathon and calling it quits because they're bored or something. I don't think it's actually like that, but it's my simile, so deal.

My icon should really say "Books hate me" but it doesn't.

In unrelated news, I drove in the worst fog this evening. If there had been a deer in the road, they would have been run over AND I NEVER WOULD HAVE SEEN THEM. That's how bad it was. So bad that someone less skilled and awesome than me drove themselves off a hill. They were fine. I knew this because they were milling on the road, smoking. Well, maybe milling on the road in the middle of Stephen King fog indicates head trauma. They are lucky no zombies were lurking about. Or giant dinosaurs from another dimension.

Back to reading, I don't know what was up with me this year. Actually, I do. I moved. And left behind the best library system in the world for a library that is closed on my weekends (Sundays/Mondays) and makes you pay for interlibrary loans. This library is only open until 5 pm. FIVE. That is when I get off work, so unhelpful. My pool of books winnowed pitifully down to back issues of the local town paper (from 1883 or thereabouts!). <--- If you end a sentenc with parenthetical notations and an exclamation point, does that exclamation point go outside the parenthesis or what?

MINA IS A DONUT SO I MUST GO EAT HER AND SLEEP.

MINA IS A DONUT OF LOVE AND SHE SHOULD BE IN MY ARMS RIGHT NOW. Jorge just licked my ear to state his agreement.

OMG I HATE DRIVING IN FOG. I am glad you are safe. I would also like to point out that in BERKELEY we don't have crazy stupid fog, therefore, YOU COULD REJOIN CIVILIZATION and rend the apartment on the 2nd floor of my DOG FRIENDLY

SHE'D LOVE TO BE IN YOUR ARMS BUT THEY ARE 3 HOURS AWAY!

Does Berkeley have a 600-acre sanctuary for which my crazed mexi-mutt may run FREES!?!

IT'S ACTUALLY 12,000,000 acres and it's call Pt. Isabel/East Bay Regional Parks/Mt. Tam/THE BAY AREA. Geez, does Celeste need a bigger Queendom?

How funny. Literally this morning I was wondering whether you still post here, and now here you are. In fact, since Australia is so many time zones ahead of you, I was probably wondering that AFTER you posted but BEFORE your post arrived in Australia. Or something.

Thanks again for your help with a Christmas present for my dad!

i would cry a really lot if my library were like your library.

although i have enough books here to last me, um, a really long time :p

driving in fog is creepy. i get that weird disoriented feeling that i'm not moving. plus, i mean, that's total zombie weather. and that's just always unsettling.

I have enough books too, but they never SEEM like enough, hence my woe.

Zombies were at the forefront of my mind! Henrietta, my vehicle, was made for zombie killing. *nods*

Oh man, we used to get crazy fog around my dad's house and I always did worry about zombies.
