this and that

- I realized today that I have my library card number, which is 14 digits long, memorized, but I've never managed to learn my bank account number (9 digits). I do know my permit number, which I didn't realize I did until just now. I have major issues with remembering phone numbers (7 or 10 digits). Memory is weird.

- You know it's getting towards spring when we're both jonesing for decent produce. The store had strawberries buy one get one, which made them $2 a pound, which isn't too bad (I can't wait until summer when I can go do the pick your own thing for a $1 a pound), so we got those and some apples and pears and bananas, and there is going to be fruit salad (for days). Num.

- For last night's pizza, I tried half white, half wheat flour. While it worked for Jeff's bread the other day, it made for an extra chewy pizza crust. Edible, but not preferable.

- This weather just makes me want to curl up and sleep...

this and that about books

I am currently reading (*counts*) 6 books. Which makes me feel as if I haven't read anything this month, even though I know I have, because I haven't finished anything, and thus, haven't been able to add anything to the tally. Which is silly, I know, but well.

My inner compulsive list maker is twitching, because the list of books I'd read in January got eaten in a data crash and I hadn't done my January reviews yet (still haven't, actually). It shouldn't be bugging me as much as it is, since in the greater scheme of things, it doesn't matter if a book or two isn't on the list. But it still bugs. (And no, the library doesn't keep a list of books checked out, it's not anywhere else, blah blah blah. It's just gone. Meh.)

I had out two one-week books. One, Memory in Death, I had to turn back in, because I didn't even have time to crack it and there's like, 85 holds on it. I think I'll wait to re-request it until it's almost time for spring break. The other, Cell, I was able to renew, even though there were holds on it (I don't get it, but I'm not complaining) but I doubt I'll be able to renew it again, which means in theory it needs to be done by Wednesday, which is so not going to happen. But I haven't been in the mood to read about the end of the world for the last couple of nights. I should be able to have it done by this weekend, though.

It's time to stop nattering at LJ and go follow Thursday Next around the world of books for awhile. (The problem with the Thursday Next books is that they make me want to read all the books they refer to, so I'll catch all the references. It's certainly not necessary to enjoying the series, but it'd be nice.)
