10 JunThings and Other Things

Things: I have *no* impulse control, apparently, when left unchaperoned in a bookstore. To my credit, I only walked out with two books for me — one recommended by a co-worker (Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett) & one that I stumbled upon serendipitously (The Stone Gods by Jeanette Winterson). The first should be an entertaining read. The second should also be an entertaining read. I do rather adore Jeanette for reasons personal & literaturical. I got M2 The Sneeches by Dr. Seuss & M1 one of the Oz books. But back to meeeeeeeee! I don’t really get how Neil is stashed away under Sci/Fi and Jeanette is not. Their reaches into fantasy and the… illogical? mythical? fairytale? is similar, somehow, in my simple taxonomist’s mind. Years of working in bookstores & I’ll never get the bookseller’s mindset. It’s just peculiar.

Other things: We took the house down *another* $15K today. We’ll drop no further & anyone wanting fixes or things paid for or whatever can go… you know. Hopefully this does the trick. I’m sore tired of the selling routine & am ready to move. on.

That is all.
