Aside from the broken heart bit (I've never had one. Yes, I know that's weird), this is pretty accurate. )

Found a couple of good looking pumpkins last night. Today, I have to clean and carve them, then give the apartment a once over so it looks presentable. It's going to be squishy here tonight, so consider this your only warning.

I pinched this from [livejournal.com profile] okoshun. I did it a couple of times, but the first was the best. Guess which one made me cackle outloud with delight...

Not much news on the Shannon front. What they're trying to do now is wean her off morphine and the ventilator. If she can't come off the ventilator, then they'll have to put in another stent, but this time in the left brochial branch. But for now, they want to see if she'll be okay without it. She's still not in a crib, but that should happen as soon as one comes available.

One of Shannon's roommates has been moved into a private room. He hasn't been doing very well as of late and there was a big family meeting today regarding what to do next. His parents have been really dazed, but the longer you are in the CCU, the longer you recognize the look to be what it is: stressed, tired and very very worried. It hasn't been easy on them. I hope that, for good or ill, something happens soon.

And now, a meme... )
Okay. I've been poked with a Magic Reach by [livejournal.com profile] lovecraftienne, so now onto the Book Meme...

1) Total number of books in your house:

Do I have to count? Lots. Hundreds. Reference ones, and biographical ones, and children's ones, and graphic ones, and gaming ones, and ancient ones, and so much more.

2) The last book you bought was:

Aside from giving my money to the nice people at Now and Then for flat paper objects, No One Noticed the Cat by Anne McCaffrey for my at-the-time unborn babe (this was last summer. I have so many yet to be read, and I still want to buy more. And I miss working at LSC...free books...*shudder in delight*)

3) What was the last book you read before reading this?

Again, aside from a comic book, Terry Pratchett's A Hat Full of Sky.

4) Write down 5 books you often read or that mean a lot to you.

Last Hero, Terry Pratchett
Archangel, Sharon Shinn
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, Chris Moore
Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien
American Gods, Neil Gaiman

5) Who are you going to pass the Magic Reach stick to (three people) and why?

[livejournal.com profile] sorceressmedea, a fellow classicist and I'm curious to know what she's translating, er, reading...:)
[livejournal.com profile] angeliquewisom on account that I don't know much about her and would like to know more.
[livejournal.com profile] hollygoth 'cause she works in a library, and must be tempted to read surrounded by all those books.

Somehow, it's comforting to be a heart-shaped armadillo. And rather silly, too.

Okay, I'm a little slow on this, but here's my take on the Ten Things Meme. )
Merrily stolen from [livejournal.com profile] shishain and [livejournal.com profile] sorceressmedea...

If you read this, even if I don't speak to you often, please post a memory of me. It can be anything you want, it can be good or bad, just so long as it happened.

Then post this to your journal to see what people remember about you.

The kettle's boiled. I should go and feed the howler.
1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.

2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.

3. Include these instructions, and share the love.


This is a Sedna. A prominent character in Inuit myth, this print was part of the 2000 Cape Dorset show and was done by Ohotaq Mikkigak. While working at the much missed Enook Gallery, I fell in love with the "Emerging Sedna" and bought one for myself. It still hangs proudly on my livingroom wall, within close proximity, oddly enough, to my oosik. ;)

If this doesn't work, mea culpa. I'm trying to make sense of the "cut" html coding...and I'm trying to see if it works or if I'm doing someting wrong.
