usually i publish the first take.
i had to swing the chandelier twice
this time to get the light to fall
on the cabinets properly though.
i was even ready to try two or three
more times. “if at first you don’t
succeed, to hell with it. it can’t
be done.”

king of the lists

the shelf is still right where i photographed it
but the books have all been moved to a new shelving
development. i’m lazy t’ *photograph* it just now,
so what you see here is it for tonight.

and, yes, i’ve actually *read* most of these…
several of them more than once and more than
a handful *out loud*. i haven’t kept up.
but for quite a while there, it was steve’s
america around here (and millions of people
knew it). to rival the sheer number-of-words-
-read in my life, you’d have to be isaac asimov
or something. the prize here is probably the
_green_mile_ set. all but one of ’em are firsts.

today i decided to rebuild the mythology-and-
-religion section in the TV room. and got as
far as what you see when it occurred to me to
photograph the darn thing. there’ve been a
bunch of cinderblock bricks sitting out front
since i moved in a year ago. some of ’em’ll
be, anyway, indoors today… maybe even hold-
ing up boards etcetera. meanwhile, i’ll’ve
annotated a bunch more of _henry_iv_part_2
(the “hollow crown” version [what i like to
call “the lokiad” (since it stars tom hid-
in the hal-of-the-henriad role)]).
madeline’ll have returned with yet another
load of yummy groceries. i’ll’ve put ’em
away and prepared some. which reminds me.
the low-key ad just ended and i’m kind of

also this might be the first shot of our
very cool enormous-measuring-cup style
glass mixing bowl. with graduations and
a spout and… most useful of all…
a handle. there’s even a lid.

bypassing flickr altogether.
here as indicated are glass items.
there’s a whole different load in
the drainer now on the same dirty
water from yesterday but these are
indeed the same items (plus maybe
a few more). there’s a photo but
it might not be worth uploading.
