Some GEEk haxx0red my shopping basket

Yesterday I went to Barnes & Noble. I tried to get in and get out. I . . . sort of succeeded. In that I didn't linger or look at books I never thought of looking at; but some freaking GEEK put all these GEEK books in my hands and I ended up buying them by accident. Any of these books by themselves would maybe not be too bad? But the three of them together -- I'm so embarassed, I can't even tell you what they are. I don't think I've ever purchased more than one book from the Sci Fi/Fantasy aisle before. Oh, Lordy. At least they're classics, and not some Eye of the World shit. In high school, my friend Beano (yes, really. He ate a lot of green beans as a child, or something?) had all those dorky books. All the Neil Jordan shit, or whoever that guy is; and those ones with the title in a sword on the cover? I don't know what the heck they are. And lots of Star Wars books, too. He kept them all on a bookshelf that we referred to as "The Ho-Ass Bookshelf". And with good reason, no?

However, I DID buy a book that was in the discount aisle, called Whiskey: The Water of Life. Now that's what I'm talking about.

    Today is Thursday. Settlement on the sale of our house is Tuesday. I took the dog for a walk today, and I started to get a little emotional.

    So it wasn't until late 2013 that I learned how amazing Ursula K. Le Guin is, and how much I adore her. I have been slow in getting through her…
