Anyhoo. So I've finally gotten around to making the library part of my routine. I've found the experience oddly frustrating, actually, as the local library doesn't have that great a selection, especially in the sci-fi department, but I'm doing all right. One thing that's irking me is finding only portions of a series available instead of the whole series. What I've taken to doing is finding the missing pieces out on the Internet for cheap and buying them, and then I figure when I'm done I'll donate them to the library, since I don't particularly want to keep my own partial series collections floating around. :) Hopefully the library'll keep 'em floating around and thereby round out their series collections. One can hope.
Many of you know that I lug around with me a sizable collection of Discworld novels. Many of you also know that I tend to dig them out and reread them every so often. In doing so, it has often slipped my mind that there are other Discworld novels. You know, like...ones I don't own. :) So, happily the library's collection of Discworld novels nicely complements my own, so I've been using the library to catch up on Discworld happenings. I just recently finished Thud!, wherein Pratchett introduced group of creatures called...vurms! Yay us! :)
Anyway. Not much happening around here. Tomorrow I head back to work after my extended absence. I hope I still have a job. Well, I kinda hope that. I'm feeling more or less back to normal. Well...I'm not projecting untoward mucus out of my head openings any more, anyway. Well, much. So I guess heading back to work won't be a big problem. And I get to ease my way back in by doing tournament the next couple days, anyway, so...we'll see how it goes. Just the same ol' stuff, I guess. The Poker Open is coming up soon...next couple weeks, I think, so that's going to be a busy time, unfortunately. It will also basically mark the end of the summer season, though, so...hopefully things will taper off a bit after that. We shall see.
Peace out, everybody. Smell ya later.
