Here is the beginning of the list of purged books. More will be added as I clear off bookshelves over the next couple of weeks. As I add more books to the list, I will re-post it with the new titles in bold.

Fiction Book List as of 07/17//09 )

If you are interested in any of these titles, please contact me by email or by commenting here (all comments will be screened). This is the result of only one of our bookcases, there are seven more to go, plus what's in storage. Everything here is fiction, the non fiction will be posted later. If these titles are not claimed by the end of August, they will go to our local used book store.

Here is the first installment of the snoods I'm trying to sell. I'll be posting more over the next couple of weeks. If you are interested in the snoods, please comment here (comments will be screened) or send me email. I'm modeling them here, and for those who don't know, I have waist length, fine hair. All the snoods are strung with ribbon to hold them on (you will need bobby pins to hold it in place).

I am by no means a foodie, but [ profile] cakewrecks is geeky, snarky and just plain wrong. Brent and I just spent a wonderful, post Super Colossal Cosmic Toddler Meltdown evening reading this blog out loud and laughing until we cried.

Thanks so much to [ profile] ps238principal for pointing us to it.

I don't know if you have read this open letter by Wendi Aarons, but if you haven't, you really must. Even Brent thought it was hilarious.

The Great Keith Book Sort has begun. So far, 2 tubs (found under our bed) emptied and 3 shelves cleared before Wee Boy needed a nap. So far, 3 boxes of Keep and 5 boxes of get rid of (and one bag of strips), so I think we are doing well. Once I finish this book case, I will post a list of titles and the rules for acquisition on here. I will continue to update the list as I empty book cases. In the end we hope to thin the collection to half its current volume. My intent is to do one regular bookcase a day (or half of the extra large book case in Ian's room). We also have books in storage which we are going to try to access this weekend. 90% of what I'm sorting now is fiction, a combo of science fiction, fantasy and mysteries, with a couple of historical romances thrown in for good measure. We are keeping all the children's books since they are either antiques or almost the right age for Ian or both. And there are some authors, like Issac Asimov or Lois MacMaster Bujold or Elizabeth Peters, that we are keeping our entire collection of.

As the list gets posted, please consider the titles. I know that times are hard, but we would rather the books go to a good home than the bowls of the local used book store, even if we don't get any money off them. We are prepared to ship books, as long as the receiver pays for shipping. All book entries will be unlocked and screened to protect the innocent.

Now that I'm no longer working, I seem to spend my free time (when I'm not running after Ian) knitting and watching movies. Over the last several weeks I been quite busy. [ profile] cormac, this is the post you are looking for...

Its hard to believe that such a supposedly progressive state could actually uphold a law to take away someone's civil rights. Welcome to Prop 8 Land!

On this day, one year ago, I became a Mommy for the first time. Ian, you have made my life so very exciting and fun. I love you, dearest boy, more than I can put into words. Keep growing, keep changing, keep finding out who you are. Your Daddy and I are so very proud of you!!

“Gonna have a three-ring circus someday.
People will say it's a fine one son,
But until I get it, I'll do my thing
With government. It's got three rings.”
-Three Ring Circus by Lynn Ahrens from Schoolhouse Rock: America Rock

I felt I had to quote that song at the beginning of this entry. Apparently the GOP is approaching the current national crisis by trying to declare the Democratic Party Socialist*. I’m sure that this will fix all the problems that the country is currently suffering from.

Is it just my imagination or did they just shoot themselves in the foot yet again?

*You will note that according to the article, Chairman Steele is actually opposed to this little bit of idiocy. Unfortuneately, we all know who really controls the GOP...
