My house contains two things: 1. Books. 2. Dust.

There we go. There's a journal layout I can get behind: spire's Aperture v2, with some minor font tweaks. Nice delicious Gill Sans for those of you on Macs, falling back to that bargain-basement Helvetica knockoff for those of you not. (You can join IKEA in font slumming.)

Yesterday I hung out with drsquidlove, gloriana, barbana, and people whose LJ handles I do not know but whom I know thanks to ConStrict. We ate much delicious spicy Jamaican food and talked about random stuff. I learned this week that Dr Squid Love has no taste and does not agree that Pride and Prejudice is the greatest novel written in the English language. WTF. She likes DH Lawrence. Double WTF.

I'm going to have to return to trying to declutter my living room now, a heroic feat if I can manage it with Mr Pedia dolefully watching my every move for hints that I'm about to throw out something important. That was supposed to be last weekend's project, but I broke my toe (or possibly toes) and now it's this weekend's project. Because this weekend I can stand up.

ETA: Actual conversation:
Me: Hon, what should I do with this chainsaw I just found in the living room?
Him: May I recommend chopping up someone you don't like?

So finding out that the EVOL doctor is less than mainstream acceptable is news to you? Hah, I coulda predicted that! I'm lowbrow, I prefer T.E.Lawrence.
TE Lawrence was an interesting guy. I approve of him, though not of the brakes on his motorcycle.
Likes DH Lawrence? I have to concur with the WTF.

Can I borrow that chain saw?
PS to squidlove
No offense to drsquidlove on the basis of differing literary taste. Stephen King adores Dickens, and as much as I love his writing, and as much as I can see how Dickens (et al) influence him, I still can't stomach reading Dickens. (shrug) just one of those things, I guess.
Re: PS to squidlove
No, no no, don't apologize. I'll get the gas can, and you fire the thing up.
Re: PS to squidlove
I still don't think I could actually burn a book. Turn it in for credit at a used book store, however...so I could get something decent? That is a plan I can go with!
Re: PS to squidlove
I think that's what happened to my DHL, though maybe it all came from the library originally? Hard to remember at this vast distance of 20 years post-college.
I'm afraid I must say this Dr Squidlove has fine taste. Pride & Prejudice is only tolerable with a liberal application of zombies.

I suggest you use the chainsaw on Jane Austen.

Hello.
I've been using your bpal database to help me organise my collection and identify any bonus imps I get.
It's been down the last few times I've gone to check something.
Is that temporary? or more permanent?
Anyway thank you for having it up as a resource, I found it very helpful.
Oops! Thank you for the report! The script that makes sure it's running every night wasn't working right. It should be running now. I'm glad to hear it's useful for someone! I'm an update or two behind on getting scents into it, eek.
