Another fine day!  
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to two of the very finest women on my flist!

Firstly to blindmouse , you incisively literary nursery rhyme reference, you. Only a quarter hour left, but I hope you have been enjoying yourself thoroughly and having a jolly good one.

Secondly to raitala , who I would like to live down the road from. I was so pleased to find that you are every bit as good as you sounded. Hope you're having a magnificent day, I have a little thing under construction for you and it should get to you very shortly, via the glory of lj.

It would have been faster, but I accidentally went to a book sale and bought $1000 worth of gardening books for $261, and found that an encycolpaedia of gardening, which I rescued a full set of from a bin some years ago, is worth $500, so all in all a good day for acquisitions, if a poor one for finishing fic!

However I am home tonight rather than at the cocktail party I am meant to be attending, as J has a bad head. I have been tending to him as though he were a Bizet heroine, and now will stop explaining why I have not finished writing and proceed with the actual writing ...

I wish you lived just down the road, that would be awesome :D

Thank you for your birthday wishes and I look forward to my gift very much! ♥♥♥

I hope poor Bizet!heroine J feels better soon. :)

You know, I could live down the road. Hmmm ... *Considers* It's a possibility ...

I am having fun with your gift, should not be much longer. Bizet!J is improving, and says that I exaggerate his girliness. (I don't.)

You know the purchase of more and more books is not conducive to moving continents, don't you? ;)

Ahahaha, it doesn't get much more incisively literary than Three Blind Mice, trufax.

Thank you \o/

It's a short tale, but has drama, suspense, friendship, overcoming adversity, tragedy, amazement ...

You're welcome, did you have fun?

Tanya loves to read. She would have loved that sale. How are the fires and weather. Church tomorrow.

Victorian fires are under control (YAY!), Queensland floods still rampant, and now a category five tropical cyclone is headed towards them up north.

Australia, where nature has no sense of perspective ...

XXX to you. Sorry I am so far behind with comments, I will get there!

Sis I'm behind too. *clings* I've been so depressed and out of sorts.

Book sales are the best thing ever

I agree! I did accidentally buy one full-price book, which was $100, but actually worth it, so the rest of the bargains were even bigger bargains! And just fabulous, too. Some of them were things I had been wanting for ages!

Yes! I was just reading you post on Sirius and it's quite interesting! And my head is also bad which explains much about all of comments today:)

Omg, yay for gardening books?!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on March 8th, 2009 05:14 am (UTC)
I have to go back and keep replying to comments on the Sirius post. And since then I have re-read some of those parts of the books and have even MORE thoughts. For example, Severus drew his wand first in the infamous Knicker Display Fight. I had forgotten that!

And yay for gardening books indeed! I have such treats here!

Oooh! Gardening books :) Where do you get these fabulous deals?

And J does have a touch of the operatic when he's poorly.

Florilegium, on St John's Rd, Glebe. They are having a moving sale and it's great! Open till 6 weekdays, 5 weekends. LOADS of stock, including Rowell's conifers and Guide to Ornamental Plants in Australia at LUDICROUSLY cheap prices, and Flora's Orchids for $10. They also had the fabulous salvias book for $8. I went a bit mad ...
