- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
No, I beg to differ - the best thing one can do when it's raining is to stock up on lots of everything! Two of the nephews and I made a run to the library today to stock up on movies, books and music (good and terrible) to ride the bad weather out. We're truly awful after we've come home with our haul of treasures. They round up their loot and stake out the flat to have a movie marathon and, occasionally, come up for air and food. I take over the main house and spread everything out around me and go over each and every cover and synopsis in detail, read the first page, then the last page, and then divide my spoils into two piles: 'wanna, gotta, need to have it right now' and 'it can wait.' Then I try to read a book, watch a movie and listen to music all at the same time. It's messy, unstructured and totally smacks of someone who has little to no control over their impulses. At least when it comes to library items. Below is nothing more interesting than a small part of my most recent stash of library goodies that I'm in the middle of enjoying. All at once.
