MP & I went to the library today. Earlier in the day, knowing this was coming, I went to Michelle's Amazon wishlist to see if she had any books on her list that looked promising. She and I generally have similar taste in books and she is quicker about finding new stuff than I am. I found a series that looked promising and searched the library database. I searched first by author's last name (last name comma first name although I did not spell out his entire first name and just used the first initial). Nothing. I tried misspelling the author's name just in case. Not so much. I tried the ISBN of the book, and couldn't find it. At the library, I'm ready to check out and MP walks up, carrying the fucking book. And worse, he's all smug about it and asking me questions as if I was an idiot. Damn Gayman Smugpants. Although, now that I know it is findable I have to figure out what weird interminable method they've used to classify it and find it after he is done with it.
Sandra Day O'Connor is retiring from the Supreme Court. I remember when I was little and she was named the first woman Supreme Court Justice. I was about 7 or 8 at the time but I remember that my teacher made a big deal about how she was the first and she was a woman too, and from my state to boot! I remember being proud of that fact. I'm sad she's stepping down, mostly because, well goodness knows what kind of Conservative Bush is going to try to get in there. I'm glad she's going to be able to care for her husband, especially considering how supportive he was during her appointment. He left his practice for her. I feel sad for her though that he has Alzheimers. That's got to be a terrible way to end your (and your spouse's) life.
I had something else I've been meaning to post for days but I can't for the life of me remember.
