|10:30 pm - I can be organised! Sometimes...|
And your valuable lesson for today is: Nothing in the universe is quite as good motivation to clean your room as being unable to find something you know is in said room.
And as well as cleaning (well, sort of) the damned room, my big pole of Stuff What I Bought To Read has finally all managed to be properly shelved. Meaning that the pile of stuff as depicted here is no longer on the floor, but looks rather more like this.
Ah well, at least I have nice neat bookshelves. And I managed to find what I was looking for (Sleeping pills for the plane trip).
Oh, and yesterday's less than exciting plans became, well, surprisingly exciting, when I managed to run into Corinna in the CBD towards the end of my Boring Necessities Shopping.
So we ended up having dinner (We went to the Thai place I like, because OM NOM NOM THAI FOODS), and then drinks. And then our fabulous Bar Adventure, which involved places as diverse as the kitschy Hawaiian theme'd cheap place, to the expensive but oh-so-classy Gin Palace. As well as randomly meeting a Chinese New Year Parade, complete with Dragon and drummers, spending far too long checking out bar guides and maps and Border's and free champagne. Because you can't say no to free champagne.
All Boring Necessities Shopping should end that way.
Even if I still have things I need to buy.
Current Mood: busy
You read Traci Harding?!
She is such a lovely person on top of being a good author.
My manga collection is quite small at the moment just 4 books in total ;) But I had to migrate my Doctor Who books to a new book case cause they overfilled the shelf of my old one, they just look so good next to each other in those iddy hardcovers.
The Harding books are actually on my housemate's shelf - I've never read any of them, but my housemate - fa11ing_away
- apparently gets a thank you in the acknowledgements of one of them.
Mine are mostly bought on sale, or at cons. Or yesterday, since the second hand bookstore randomly had a pile of manga.
