Here's how to play the game: Take my list. Delete the names I have crossed out. Cross out any names of authors that you currently DON'T have on your bookshelf. Add authors that you DO have on your bookshelf until you reach ten (not counting cross-outs).

JK Rowling
JRR Tolkien
William Shakespeare
Oscar Wilde
Neil Gaiman
Jostein Gaarder
Wilkie Collins
Jasper Fforde
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Agatha Christie
Mark Twain
Ian Flemming
George Eliot
Alexander Dumas

Of course I have no idea what the point of this is, but it seemed like a good chance to promote some of the great stuff I have at home.

Another religious rant

There are two period of the year that I turn sorta introspective and they're pretty much back to back. Good luck for you that this is the second one. Collapse )
But I do have some specifics I can forgive, and request forgiveness for in turn.
To all the jerks who've ever irritated me by driving stupidly, I forgive you, and request forgiveness for all the times I was that jerk driving stupidly.
To all the people I've offended in lj with a thoughtless comment, get over it. I mean, uh, I'm sorry, I'll try to post with consideration and kindness, if I don't, please let me know. You guys aren't usually shy, so I hope this won't be a problem.
And to Marci and Frank, for all the times I've let you down, and not been what you hoped for there is no forgiveness. All I can do is promise to be better next time.

Random thoughts

There was just a tick in my office. No, I didn't go near it. I made Rich get rid of it. Thank you, Rich.
The irony is this coming so soon after a conversation with Elaine about flies in the bathroom (not here, in the old building).
Curves went really well today. I actually enjoyed it. It was not crowded, the people were really friendly, like I brought a bit of Kentucky back with me and started spreading it around. One of the women wished me well and, we didn't exactly arrange to see each other again, but we compared timetables and stuff to see if we would see each other again. That's the advantage of set schedule, which stupid me can't keep to.
Afterwards, I went to my usual SUBway for lunch. It's a SUBway in a convienence store. Talk about life affirmations, they're always so sweet to me there. I know all three counter girls, and the owner, and the counterman who works the convienence store register (and I kinda think he owns the place, although he seems very young) and they all told me how good it was to see me again, they asked about my trip, and my nephew, which would lead one to several conclusions. a) I go there too much b) I talk too much and c) I'm not such an evil person.
Cheers,
