I’m starting to see a bunch of SDCC posts trickling in, and unlike every other person on the internet, have absolutely no desire to be there.
I mean, I’d like to see some of the panels, but they’ll all be up on Youtube soon enough, and the idea of the crowds, the queues and the heat makes me feel a little queasy.
A plea to everyone everywhere:
PLEASE LEAVE SPACE ON YOUR BOOKSHELVES FOR NEW BOOKS IF YOU WANT TO HAVE SOME SORT OF ORGANISATIONAL SYSTEM!
I have just spent the past six hours moving hundreds of books from one shelf to another in this academic’s office because he didn’t leave space for new books in his alphabetised-by-author shelving system.
(Also his system is a bit chaotic because sometimes he files biographies, scholarship and criticism with the relevant author - e.g. books about Orwell with books BY Orwell - and sometimes he doesn’t and they’re filed under their individual authors instead. SUPER CONFUSING.)
My librarian brain aches.
Rewatching Whip It! with my partner. We both agree that it - like Bend It Like Beckham - would have been much better as a lesbian film.
My newest sister was born today. There are now five of us, and we are WONDERFUL.
Watching the final with two nervous Germans and one calm Australian.
My sister took me out to lunch at Wahaca.
My sisters are the best sisters.
The woman I was dealing with at the university’s Student Registry, and the admin assistant to my college’s Praelector are GENUINE HEROES and I think I should send them flowers and bottles of sparkling wine.
(Basically they rushed through some admin stuff that meant I could graduate next week even though it was later than usual to be allowing that sort of thing.)
GAH. ADMIN DRAMA.
