I decided my new year's resolution would be 1920 x 1200, same as always....

romance is not dead at my house

Halloween is our anniversary.

Last night in his sleep, Jim informed me that he had had a chip installed in me, one that worked like a magic 8 ball, so he could talk to my butt when I am on Mars.....

we got slightly more than the usual number of trick or treaters. I was pleased that several of them said, "Wow! Look at all your books!" when we opened the door

although my favorite ever was a few years back when a little girl asked me if my house was dressed as a library for Halloween. (I told her it was always dressed as a library, and I was dressed as the librarian.)

Jim got caught by a political survey on the phone. Since I had escaped, I wasn't paying too much attention until I heard him say:

How would I rate Chris Christie? What's the lowest rating you have? ... Don't you have anything lower than that?

I don't think they'll call again since they got an answer at our number, which is too bad, because I would like to have a chance to tell them I call him Governor Bloviating Crouton

"...destined to be a book club favorite."

This phrase at the beginning of your review had an immediate effect on me -
but not the one you were hoping for....

Three school shootings and one lockdown this week...... obviously, we don't need to address this issue

I find that I am offended more and more by a word that should not offend me at all, and that word is "prayers."

The way you use it offends me deeply. It is not meant to be used as an excuse.

We do not want your prayers (nor do I believe more than a handful of you actually pray). We want you to do your damn job. If you cant / won't do that, shut up about prayers.

Did you see when the pope said the way to end hunger is - you pray for the hungry and then you feed them? That's how it works.

We are watching Midsommer Murders on Brit-crimes tonight. This episode is about a feud between digital and film photographers. The film photographer holds up his print, and shouts "that's a *real* photo - with no damn pixels!"

Well, Jim and I start laughing. Even in your brain, all pictures are pixels.


His dad was a printer, and mine was a photo-engraver.

I said to Jim, in the long-suffering voice -
"Our dads had to put their pixels in by hand....."

over on one of the Tolkien groups I follow, someone asked
"What is your favourite passage from The Lord of the Rings?"

There aren't a lot of answers (yet) but they lean toward long passages. I love the build up of Tolkien's prose in a paragraph, but what utterly shatters me is usually a single line that goes through the brain right to the heart. I picked this:

"He knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless."

Not because of the "he" [bombadil], but because of the when....

When I first read LotR back in 63, I believe that line was my first clue about the depth of the world I had just fallen into. It stopped my in my tracks. This book was going to be much more than it seemed at first read.

To this day, the hairs on my neck stand up when I get to that line.
