|10:11 pm - All shops should have inhouse cats. Trufax.|
So, is it just me or is there something going on with LJ notifications? Because mine seem to be all over the place at the moment - some arrive as normal, and some are delayed for hours. I was going to say some don't arrive at it, but it did in fact arrive just then.
I'm sending a grumpy face in your direction, people in charge.
Yesterday's jabbing went fine - so long as I remember not to sleep on that arm, anyway. Then I got to wander around Carlton for a bit. You know, there is a clothing shop on Rathdowne Street, and the shop assistant (owner, maybe?) brought her white Persian cat to work. It was sitting there in the front window, watching people go by. I'm not entirely sure how happy she was when I spent more time in the shop looking at the cat then the clothes, though...
I also bought some second hand books, which may end up being airport reading for me - a couple of fantasy ones, including the first Temeraire book, and Lolita in case I felt literary.
Tomorrow, I'll be spending the afternoon with Mum and The Sister - and my aunt, who is currently in Australia, and who I shall be seeing for the first time since I was about 10. Which I'm sure will be interesting.
Witness our epic struggle to find new bookshelves for my sister's apartment!
Anyway, I was looking around Etsy earlier, and since I know there are a few people on my flist who seem to buy all sorts of fabulous stuff from that site - got any sellers you particularly recommend? I'm vaguely in the mood for materialism.
Current Mood: curious
Oh, I like some of that jewellery. So very shiny.
I ♥ Temeraire. I wants one. Wow I just found an old piece of news that Peter Jackson wants to make a miniseries. *squee* *flails*
My mum loves Temeraire too and she's not one for full series, she likes one offs better, but she always bugs me for when the next one is out ;) Which the next one appears to be in less than two weeks! I'll stop spamming you now.
See, even I'd heard the Peter Jackson rumour, and I haven't even read any of the books yet. How many are there so far, anyway?
5 out so far with the 6th coming soon, they are of the shorter nature rather than epic tomes :) But I'm sure I read 4 and 3 out of order by accident and didn't overly realise too.
Well, I only have one for now. Whether I read the rest will depend on how much I like it.
