This qualifies! Earlier, I was ‘ Pinteresting’ and spent a good amount of time rearranging my boards into alphabetical order. Yes, my OCD is showing. I know it and don’t care just now. I just wish that I could apply it to finishing the paper that’s due tomorrow, the one I’ve done all the work on, references etc….but have only managed to write the introduction. Yeah, that paper.
Tomorrow is another day, and like Scarlett, I’ll face it tomorrow. I will be one very busy lady and up burning the midnight oil. That’s an old metaphor that I don’t see anyone using these days. I like to use the words and feelings of the past in my blogs. It’s part of my love of words. In keeping up with the technology, I’ve extended my love of words to loving fonts, too. Thoroughly modern me!
I have another photo (from photographer Pamela Ullmann, and available at http://www.linkedin.com/in/pamelaullmann ) to share that sort of fits in with my love of words:
Actually I really like the smell of old books…all dusty and musty (that’s another word you don’t often find), and begging for someone to take them off the shelf just one more time. It wouldn’t even matter if no one read them again, just to be off the shelf one more time. I have to confess that I am not the person who ‘helps’ old books. I have a Kindle and I do my reading wherever I happen to be, such as standing in line, waiting at the pharmacy, anywhere I have to spend time I would otherwise feel was a waste. It works for me, and I love gadgets like the Kindle. It gets a bit expensive now that book prices have gone up, but it’s worth the price considering the convenience of having it with me. (Amazon will love me for writing about one of their major sellers)
wasted whiled away enough time that I can now say it’s time to get ready for bed. I’ll be reading A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. It’s been years since I read it and I assure you, it’s definitely worth reading again, and again. Hemingway has a style all his own and the words are like syrup, flowing one into the next. Needless to say, I am enjoying reading it!
Off to read,
