Bullshit So Far

In the past few days I have been both the recipient and target of a number of bookshelf "offerings." It's wonderful, thank you. I'd have a field day with shelves such as those.

And now I feel I must share with you the Michael Korda quote that I keep taped to my monitor at work: "The biggeset fool in the world is he who merely does his work supremely well, without attending to appearance."

It has long fueled my mental disorder in positive ways.

We have 3 bookshelves - I think a bit taller than those in our basement. We have built in bookshelves in our bedroom in an alcove on each well and the second bedroom upstairs has an entire wall of bookshelves. Last of all (back down in the basement) I have a bookshelf in my office.

There are 2 bags of books waiting for me to find time to take them to a local donation place because my husband tells me that having all these shelves full of books can not be a good thing...

I'll have to take pictures I think - you can tell me.

Geeze... I really can't type tonight.

I meant our bookshelves were likely a bit taller than yours.

And the bookshelves in our bedroom are built into the wall...

I know there are more mistakes, but I give up.

Digging the pouch of Levi Garrett. In case of emergency, break glass, kind of thing?

I knew if I looked hard enough, I'd find a penguin.

Did you know that if you looked hard enough, you'd also find "The Joys of Yiddish" by Leo Rosten?

I'll see your 2 bookcases and raise you 4 more! (and that's just in the house; there are totes full of books in the 'man-room').

Its a "Jarhead thing", and no it's not about well endowed young ladies.

Erica would blow a gasket if she realized how many bookshelves and bookcases we have here at Chez Elisson, all chockablock with books and other assorted crap.

Aside from the credenza/bookcase in my office, we have three big bookcases upsatirs...plus two smaller ones in the computer room...plus a few in the other bedrooms. Plus three big ones and a fistful of small ones in the basement.

Plus a big built-in in the den. Oy.

We need more, for we have more books than will fit on the shelves we have. And right now, those books are all piled on our dining room table and in our three upstairs bathrooms (filling all three tubs, too) while our new carpet is installed.

Erica, be glad you are not here...you would start bleeding from the ears.

Hah! Star Trek on top of 'em all!

After the holidays I'll have to take a picture of MY built-ins. Holy cow are they a wreck. But we likes it that way.

If you really wanted to scare him Erica threaten to send the Zombie Librarian to arrange his books and his BRAIIINS! Some interesting shelves there Eric. I used to see Chesty's medals daily. They were in a shadow box display on the mess decks of my second ship.USS Lewis B. Puller FFG-23.
