I am utterly incapable of getting to bed at a reasonable hour. In the business I've been in for the last ten years, I would work a full day and then go to condo board meetings at night, at least twice or three times a week, so I started to feel ripped off for free time and would read until the wee h...

Thanks for the tip. I'll check that out. My local used bookstore gets a lot of books from an elderly woman who has been collecting science fiction for about 50 years. Every time I've enquired about a particular writer and asked if they can find me a decent copy of something, they visit her house and...

What's the best way to store books?

On a recent foray to the used bookstore I bought a few older hardcover books that are in great shape but already quite venerable. I think some of these have been out of print for a while and would probably be difficult to replace, and they're books I want to keep. On impulse, I also snagged a signed...

That monstrous and fragile ego thing can be a real bastard.

Monstrous will bullshit and bluster its way into all manner of nasty and complicated situations and then bugger off, leaving Fragile holding the bag.

Have I been there? Oh yes. :wink:

If all else fails and you're "stuck" with the car, bear in mind that if Civic is anything like the two Hondas I've had, it will pay for itself over the years. I bought my '89 Prelude used (it was nine years old when I bought it) and during the seven years I drove it I had no repair bills (...

We've already had our winter up here. It snowed for a few days, then melted, and now we're being subjected to a series of major windstorms that have knocked over countless thousands of trees in the city. I'm eyeing the 100 foot cedar in my neighbour's back yard with suspicion at this point! And we h...

Ignoring a cat is actually counter-productive if you don't like cats -- because ignoring a cat is evidence that that you are an exceptionally well-socialised human and clearly understand the niceties of cat society. People that get all cuddly-wuddly and start cooing and patting and grabbing are actu...

Was it Pogo? Yes'm, that it were. The hon'ble Mr. Blum was singin' from tha hart. http://www.pogopossum.com/deckus.htm You made my week with that link! :D We had almost all of those Pogo books in our house when I was a kid. I read them over and over -- probably had them half-memorized by the time I...

I can hear the rusty gears at the back of my mind creaking away...something to do with an old comic strip.

Sorry to hear about Peaches, David. I'm dealing with a sick animal myself at the moment. We had my cat's thyroid removed a year ago because she had extreme hyperthyroidism. Everything seemed fine until recently, but unfortunately the periods of wobbliness in her hind legs have started up again. I'll...

Re: James Bond?!!

I don't know about anyone else here - I mean I wouldn't put anything past you guys - but in visual terms I have a really hard time buying into this new actor, Daniel Craig, as a Bond. He looks like a minimum wage dock worker or a 2-dollar thug who'd been on the wagon too long. I laugh my ass off wh...

Darby Mills, eh? She had a great voice. Too bad the HeadPins were a one-hit wonder.
