...and exhale

So today I got the third bit of good news about the third of three things I was sweating out. When I am in stressed--which might be merely a blip in the heart rate for some people--mode, I tend to clam up and go inside my head and gnaw through the problem, and developing contingencies and all that.

Which I find exhausting, so it was good to get these three things out of my way.

Now, I'm going to suggest a book I just started (more on that in a later post) called The Collected What If. I'm in something of a historical frame of mind these last few weeks, but this will be my last as I retackle the Harry Potter ouvre immediately afterwards. In the latter case I alternate between the audiobooks and the paper books and since I am going to plow through all 6, I'll just let Jim Dale do the reading this one time. After that, I think I might give Georgette Heyer a chance. Poppy is always speaking glories of her, and after all the things I have influenced poor Poppy to do (Miss Speed Demon Rally Driver being the most recent), the least I could do is let her influence me. Fair, yes?

OK. More later (if blogspot isn't down)...

you know, I now remember that we have a HP list don't we? I haven't looked at it in ages. Think about what we should do with it (or go over there and stir up discussion).

hey--I wasn't scolding. I have been lax too. but if you are starting the HP reread, then I thought the timing was good.

verification: pftfj. it brings back memories of She Who Shall Not Be Named, IYKWIM

1. Why all the HP at the moment? Is it because of seeing the movie?

2. Georgette Heyer is very girly. I mean, these things are romances. You have been warned. But email for specifical suggestionions, like.
