Missing ...

Missing in action over the past month or so:

My good offset-handle cheese knife with the etched blade that could cut neat slices of even very hard or very squishy cheeses and >sob!< my autographed copy of Neil Gaiman's American Gods.

(Somewhere, a little gremlin is throwing a book club meeting with cheese and crackers ... .)

On the other hand, the missing pink tie-dyed bed socks turned up in the Young Lady's sock drawer.

Gremlin guys & gals, this is not a fair exchange!

A sock isn't even a suitable exchange for an unautographed paperback Gaiman...

Wow, you said it! All I can think of is that I loaned the book to someone, but that doesn't make sense - all the people to whom I'd loan it have already read it.

And that copy has such significance, too: it was my holiday gift exchange present from our gaming group that year, I waited 2 hours in the sun for Neil to sign it, and he was only supposed to do his name (because the signing started to take so long that the organizers declared "names only!" after the first 90 minutes), but when he saw on my crumpled Post-It what I'd wanted, which was a quote from Sam Black Crow's "I believe" speech, he smiled and wrote "Myrealname, Believe!" and then signed it. He's such a great human being!

So I'm really sad!

(BTW, when do you find time to sleep??? I'm watching your posts come across on my f-list page ... it's awe-inspiring!)

Well, hopefully, it's just hiding. I want to meet Neil Gaiman...from his blog and everything people who've met him say, he just sounds so amazingly nice and normal.

i sleep around 2:30-11:00 am(like...3:30-11 or 2:30-10, etc...actually....usually more like 6-7 hours, but...)

Bad, wicked, naughty book, to hide from me so!

Re sleep ... I think it's actually the amount of the remaining hours that you can spend on reading etc. that I'm finding wonderful. I have to spend far too much time on mundanities these days! Read a few extra books for me while you're at it ...   ;-)

Lol. I read and do a lot of my internetting at work...I also read fast.

Well, I read fast too, but when I'm feeling sorry for myself, or trying to get to sleep, I tend to re-read comfort stuff. And I do post at work - it's a terrible temptation all the time. But the same amount of work still has to get done, so that's why I'm here at 6:30p when I arrived at 8:30a ... I need to stop posting and leave!

LOL...my primary task is listening...doesn't affect what my hands and eyes all that much. But yes, it's hard to resist when I'm supposed to go do something else.
