old man clouseau has been enjoying the house finches from the top of his fridge lately.
*i* have been enjoying our silly string lights.
hey, whatever gets you through the winter, right? speaking of which, i have started burning through mary stewart's books. i finished airs above the grounda few days ago. it was absolutely not what i expected! (and i mean that in the absolute best way possible!) i also found it hard to believe that this was the same mary stewart who wrote the great merlin trilogy. this lady is prolific and she can *really* draw you in (i could swear to you that i spent a few days in vienna but, no. i was just reading airs.). a ++, a million thumbs up to mary stewart.
also wonderful but in an entirely different way is radclyffe hall's well of loneliness. i don't know how i haven't read this before but i have a feeling that i will be parsing it for quite a while after i've finished.
really though. how was that not on the syllabus for at least one of my classes? at a liberal arts college. in the 90's. *shrug*
plus! i started silver sparrow this afternoon and have not been able to put it down. ok, i put it down to type this but now i'm going to stop so i can go back to reading. bye!
i decided last night that i need to post more pictures/words than i have been. i'm jangly. sometimes updating this site helps with that. anyway, expect to see a bit more of my and leff's small home life in the near future.
i may have mentioned how the fug is back. (i kid, i know i did. i actively rebel against it when possible. i am super irritable if i don't.)
we're combating it in our usual way, full spectrum lights, vitamin d supplements and as much color as we can find.
plus carbs. a new top pot opened near the ferry terminal recently so leff brought these guys home.
and we are, of course, watching movies. or are about to watch movies. we are always about movies. these three arrived in the mail the other day.
