Mmmm, Amazon.com. I ordered these books on Christmas day, after my aunt and uncle sent me a $20 gift certificate, and they just came tonight! Took them a while, but it was worth the wait. I got:
- Terry Pratchett goodness -- Unadulterated Cat, the Bromeliad trilogy (man, that's a big book), and Paul Kidby's Art of Discworld. Sorry, I think I got fanboy all over the place.
- Patricia Wrede's Mairelon the Magician and Magician's Ward. I read those back in high school and loved them, but now I finally own them! (Already have the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, of course.)
- The Ordinary Princess, by M.M. Kaye. Wonderful book, very underrated. Picked it up at the library years ago and enjoyed it a lot. (Someone on my friends list has squeed over this book in the past. Who was it? *bad memory*)
There may have been some other stuff I wanted to write about; I can't quite remember. But what I do remember is, Valentine's Day!
I'm completely and utterly single at the moment, but I don't mind Valentine's Day one bit. It's mainly because I'm in no hurry to jump into a relationship. I mean, if a certain woman I'm currently crushing on told me she liked me too, of course I'd be thrilled, but I don't see that happening any time soon. But I'm an optimistic guy. I don't believe in soulmates or love at first sight or anything, but I do believe that I will experience a happy and lasting romance someday. And since I'm so certain it'll happen sooner or later, I see no reason to make myself unhappy that it hasn't yet.
But anyway, I know some of my friends are dreading the upcoming holiday. So let me brighten it a bit by sending you a valentine! If you're reading this, I like you. And I want to send you something for Valentine's Day. So please either e-mail me or comment to this post (all comments will be screened, and I won't unscreen anything with private info in it) with an address to which something can be mailed! Thanks! *grin*
