My plum! It dropped right onto the carpet. Clearly (possibly) this is an omen.
My upstairs neighbor — the most persnickety breed of oaf-like sycophant I’ve ever met — supposedly moves out today. Today! He has done nothing but annoy and tense my muscles in stress for over a year. One might expect me to butter up in merriment, and I would if I hadn’t overheard his “I’m reverse-moving!” comment. Reverse-moving? I pray that means he is crawling back to whichever hole he undesirably crept from. However, I fear it means he decided against moving and initiates the process of returning all boxed items back into the place he’s been living all this time.
I think I will cry two oceans and make a resolve: to return the hell he is so accustomed to dumping onto others. I play Fiendish Devil Almighty until he reverses this “reverse move.” (Behavior like this is precisely why, undoubtedly, Karma inflicted such a terror upon me.)
It is Friday, alas…
Friday Finds is a book meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. It’s a chance to share and show off books you discovered (online, at the library, or in a bookstore) and added to your TBR list.
I know it has been a short while, so here are some of the books I’ve discovered recently:
- Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst
- Help! A Bear is Eating Me! by Mykle Hansen
- Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride
- Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn
- The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
- The Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard
- Tales of Terror from the Tunnel’s Mouth by Chris Priestley
- The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea by Yukio Mishima
On a separate note: apologies for the lack of blogging activity and sluggish response time
. I am around and most definitely popping in on the Internet, only I’m slightly busier than usual — that goes for real life and reading alike. Most of you, I assume, saw my last Library Loot post… You may anticipate another one soon, ahh-oh. In result of my slow-to-make-progress reading “spree,” I finished Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina, so expect review. (The book is every bit delectable as I thought it would be. Rejoice.)
Tell me: which books did you unearth?
Cheerful finds, everyone; don’t let your neighbors bite.
