Random (but not really)

For Fellow DS9 Fans:

The local college radio station jazz show was playing an old standard, and I found myself thinking, “that’s why the lady is a scamp!”

Footsteps

I had an odd little experience this morning when I first arrived at work.

First, the building where I work has two long hallways, connected by several crossways. But to make it easier, think of it as an upper case H.

I enter the ground floor of the building at the foot of one leg, halfway down the hallway turn onto the crosspiece, and then when I reach the other leg, take the stairs up to the first floor.

This morning, after turning from the main hallway into the cross way, I suddenly noticed my footsteps were strangely louder–as if I was wearing shoes with hard heels instead of the soft soles I have been wearing. (The sidewalks have been treacherous–one ugly slide and a fall in a single day put me off wearing my Docs until the walks are clear.)

I softened my step, but I could still hear the striking of my heels on the tile.

Then I reached the intersection and saw walking away from me a woman in boots, walking the exact pace I was.

She was not, however, my doppelganger, seeing as she was tall and thin with long, straight, blonde hair.

I HAVE FOILED GOOGLE

Bespin Clown Car

Not only were there no existing images of a Bespin Clown Car, apparently NO ONE ELSE ON THE INTERNET EVER MADE THIS MISTAKE.

What do I win?

Clearing my Bookshelves: Fantasy Paperback, Part the Ninth

It’s that time–time to get rid of books I’m never going to read (ever or perhaps again).

Since I’m mostly reading eBooks anymore, it’s foolish to keep these books sitting around, because–I’m never going to read them.

Here is what I have in paperback.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

The Compass Rose by Gail Dayton
The Barbed Rose by Gail Dayton
The Eternal Rose by Gail Dayton

Would you like to give me something for the books? I’d be delighted!
Would you prefer instead to make a donation to a charity instead of giving me something? Great!
Are you low on cash but still really want a book? Talk to me and you can pay it forward later.
