Self-Portrait 3

to-do to-night

-- Move all my bookshelves into the office and re-sort books

-- Stitch up the shoulder on my jacket

-- Put a button on my new jacket, and tighten up the buttons that are already there

-- Sew up the strap on my backpack

-- Work out

Books I've Read

It almost seems like cheating to count graphic novels since they're usually such quick reads, but so far this year I've read Sin City: The Hard Goodbye, Astonishing X-Men: Gifted, Superman: Red Son, and Lone Wolf and Cub vol. 11: Talisman of Hades.

The hazards of re-arranging all your books

"The best thing --perhaps, in Shadow's opinion, the only good thing-- about being in prison was a sense of relief. The feeling that he'd plunged as low as he could plunge and he'd hit bottom. He didn't worry that the man was going to get him, because the man had got him. He was no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, because yesterday had brought it."

That's the second paragraph of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and I'm already in love with this book. Damn books. Too distracting to organize efficiently.
