good thing #1: krix is a lovely, generous soul. and she found my secret wishlist and sent me ‘the ultimate hitchhiker’s guide’ a wonderful, wonderful book including the whole hitchhiker’s series plus a story. these books are like best friends to me, i hadn’t read them in some time and i’m always wanting to to quote passages from douglas adams, which i remember well enough to know where in the books to find them, but not well enough to quote verbatim. now, i can look them up.
also, it’s long been on my list of to-do reads to read the whole series from beginning to end. i am now doing that.
good thing #2: the book came giftwrapped, and me being the way i am, i unwrapped it very carefully and folded the paper on the coffee table. my son admired the wrapping paper and had an idea. tomorrow is his babysitter’s daughter’s birthday, so he found one of his toys, wrapped it in the paper, and secured it with the bow. another generous soul.
good thing #3. my linklist problems are nearly solved. i have the entry page talking to the database and with only a few more edits, will have a PHP/MySQL powered linklist editing tool, so i can finally keep up with the list. it will still take awhile (especially with me putting in good couch time, reading) but progress has been made.
