Thursday, bleh!

I just came from reading Diva Kitty & the Fluffies, I loved her list of "Essential vocabulary additions for the workplace"! Hehehehehe, oh I needed that laugh today.
I think Darling Husband and I are coming down with something......again. *Sigh* it seems like we just got over these nasty nasty colds/flu. I think DH is coming down with the achy flu, he says everything aches and hurts. Back rubs, foot rubs, head rubs, and hand rubs seem to help him some. I know I am way to nice, but I like to rub him. I think I am starting to come down with it too because last night I had a headache despite the painkillers I am on from the root canal, a headache bad enough I was clenching my teeth, which OWW! root canal tooth didn't appreciate.
I rented Mutant X Season 3 for us to watch while I was going to be laying around not doing much, though I can see why it was canceled after this season, they lost two of the main actors/characters and things have been moving kind of slow. DH got kind of bored with it last night, enough that he told me he was considering going to get his book so he could read while he watched.

Speaking of books, we finished Brightly Burning by Mercedes Lackey earlier this week, though I can't seem to remember which night that was (silly drugs fogging my mind). Now that I think of it, it must have been Sunday night, because I handed DH Exile's Honor before we went out the door for my root canal appointment, for him to read while I was in the chair. Last night we finished up The Postman by David Brin. Tonight we move on to The Watch on the Rhine by John Ringo. Oh Yum! This is one book and book jacket I would like to keep nice. Any suggestions? Best I could think of was the protective cellophane type stuff the library uses on their hard cover books. I don't want to use like laminate stuff, which I do have, on it, though I will if I can't come up with something better. Main reason I don't want to use the laminate stuff is that it is so hard to work with. For now the jacket is just going to have to stay off the book while I read it aloud before bed.
I also went to the library yesterday, which was mmm lovely. I like our library, This may be a small town but we have two really nice libraries. We are a college town so our population doubles every fall. We have the huge University Library which even non-college people can use. We also have the local library, which is connected to like 60 other local libraries in the area, so if the local library doesn't have what you are looking for, chances are one of the other ones do and they will ship it for free to be picked up at whatever library you choose. I borrowed two movies, and three books. The books are: A Stitch in Time by Allison Bottke, which looked interesting on the shelf, and still seemed interesting after I read the back and the first couple pages; Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes, which I picked up because of a good review on this blog; and McSweeney's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales edited by Michael Chabon, which I picked up because it looked interesting when I was perusing the shelves. I am such a book addict, I have a whole stack of new books to read at home, and yet I go looking for more at the library, I'm also in the middle of reading several books, yet I go pick up more!
At least I had a legitimate reason to go to the library, I was hoping they had 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns, which everybody on The No-End-In-Sight Ripple-Along that I joined seems to swear by. Unfortunately they didn't have the book, and neither did the other libraries, but the librarian was really nice and suggested I make a request for the book, making no promises she said they may actually buy it.

I also did my first successful ebay sale. Meaning I sold the item a few days ago, got the check for it yesterday, and shipped it yesterday. Yay me! I am hoping to sell some of my crochet and knit work. Though from what I was looking at the other day, there may not be much of a market for hand knit washcloths, baby blankets and afghans. Maybe if I offered them here? Any interest whatsoever, please post in the comments or e-mail me.
