Libraries Rock

Well, today, I hope my day will fall out like this: Send a resume or two, run an errand or two, and then start mudding nail holes around here. Maybe later I'll get some fleece cleaning done while I watch a movie or some TV.

I went to the library last night to pick up a movie I had requested (The Ice Harvest starring John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton, and Oliver Platt). It was an adaptation of a Scott Phillips novel with Richard Russo writing the screenplay. Another in my Russo research. I wound up going home with two more DVDs (Cool Hand Luke, The Devil Wears Prada), and a couple of books. Couldn't resist another Paul Newman flick. And its the one where the image I posted yesterday originated.

Libraries really do rock. I've decided I'm not buying anymore books or magazines. They just pile up and pile up, and I really don't have the space to store them. I usually only read 'em once, and my impending move will be so much easier if I don't have so much clutter to haul. So my local library is really there for me. They'll bring in anything as long as it's available at a library somewhere in Alberta. Who could ask for more?

What's on your agenda today?

Work. But its a good day. I always look forward to working with this crew. Makes my week.

Rest that ar. And reading is always good. If you are looking for good books, try Helen Humphrey's Lost Garden. An absolutely lyrical book.
