    I finally got my book... And apparently I ordered two of them. That's just brilliant.

    Victor, I think you are an E. I know you don't believe in MBTI, but by E generally I mean that you enjoy being around people all the time, or at least a lot of the time. I like reading aloud, but I also like reading alone.

    In short, I want to read aloud to you and with you and in you.
    Um... I like you, but I'm not comfortable with that....

    I do hope you are not in the cyclone's path, and if you are that you are somewhere safe. I have 3 American students studying at JCU-Cairns this semester and they are currently in an evacuation shelter, taking cover with the other inhabitants of Cairns. Talk about a cultural experience....

    i haven't started this month's book yet. i have just finished the surgeon of crowthorne by simon winchester. it's a snappy historical work based on the true story of two men who worked on the original oxford english dictionary. one of them, dr william minor was a murderer locked up in an insane asylum. he wrote his contributions to the dictionary at the asylum. woven into the story are some interesting vignettes about the history of dictionaries/etymology. i also enjoyed reading the descriptions of treatment received by the criminally insane in the late 18th/early 19th centuries. i give it three strawberries.

    I knew it would be a challenge for me to read this, I might have to get the voice over. Its become so bad, to turn from a prolific reader and lover of literature to having to skip and sign work forms because I didn't want to read it only to have to resign them because I wasn't supposed to sign everything. Hahaha details.

    Still waiting to get my copy.

    The stupid library still lists (for over a week now) 12/20 copies supposedly on the shelves at various branches, despite them not sending any of them to me. Finally went to one of the listed branches and of course it wasn't actually on the shelf. So I don't know what's up with their inventory system (there are only 2 holds on it total). They are usually much faster.

    Haha yeah I probably made someone's day. (Or not if they got paranoid..)

    I haven't touched the book since then. I've been reading some light books instead because I need to rest my brain after school and I need something happy to get me through The Drabness that is winter.
