  • Mood:
Yesterday I did laundry, much to my chagrin. I forgot my Moe's (book store) credit slip in the pocket of my jeans, and it was destroyed. That's like throwing away $23, so I'm ticked at myself. Shannon mocked me because I have plenty of money to buy books right now, but I'm still kicking myself. There's no sense in throwing money away. Damn it.

Then last night I had a bad dream in which a BART train took off with my backpack, wallet, and a bunch of other stuff of mine, which I know was inspired by the loss of the credit slip.

Then today I finished reading The Left Hand of Darkness. I found it a quick read, though I might have found it more thought-provoking if I'd read it slower, since it's chock full of good stuff. It made me cry, just as it did the first time I read it some 15 years ago.

Rooting around on my to-be-read shelf, I discovered another copy of The Dispossessed, so I wasted 90 cents when I bought it the other day. I'm not going to beat myself up over 90 cents, though.

That damned credit slip, on the other hand! $23!

I think next I'm reading The Falling Woman, by Pat Murphy. I have no idea how long it's been on my to-be-read shelf, but it's been a long time. I'm feeling motivated to read science fiction and fantasy books, because I can then review them on Xenagia. The site is still getting moving, so I'm doing everything I can to help out, even if it isn't a lot in the larger scheme of things.
