A rather pleasant Friday

Mutterings continued.

in which I put the rest of the library to rights and ate and drank coffee with boon companions.

I finally got the rest of 591.5 to 591.994 back into their correct places on the shelves. As always happens when putting things back together, I ended up with more bits than I started with - in this case it was half a dozen books that weren't registered on the database and didn't have call numbers. And three of them were in Estonian. Oh, and one was in Swedish. Bork, bork, bork.

Had a loooong lunch with friends Genette and Pat at the Book Caffe - we all had the Caesar salad, mine had chicken in it. And then we had to have dessert; they had the lemon baked cheesecake, I had the lemon meringue. And more coffee. Lemon meringue is my all-time favourite and according to the meme, it means "Lemon Meringue... Smooth, sexy, & artistic with your hands, you are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and chew gum at the same time as you have a problem with coordination." Who says I'm dumb?

I had to buy a book while waiting - Edward Rutherfurd's London.

Another meme, this time courtesy of a Black Smilie Kitty:

List seven songs you are into right now.
No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good,
but they must be songs you're really enjoying now.

1. My Body May Die - from Randall and Hopkirk
2. Let Me Entertain You - Robbie Williams
3. Millenium - RW
4. No Time - the Monkees
5. Why Aye Man - Mark Knopfler
6. A Place Where We Used to Live - MK
7. Theme from The Professionals - it's my mobile phone ring tone.

As next year is A Special Year, birthdays-wise, I've decided to treat myself to a trip to the UK. I have enough frequent flyer points for a return trip to London; I just have to save the spending and accommodation money. That said, I have three parcels from Cafe Press winging their way towards me, so I'm obviously not being careful with the credit card.
