Booking myself

Wow, two posts in a day.

funny pictures-Everyone dies at the end. There, now you have extra time on your hands to pet me.

I actually haven't been reading much lately, apart from dipping into some ebook texts when I'm stuck out somewhere. Mostly I've been lying in bed doing 'Codecracker' puzzles -- BB and I have a book each from NZ. I finished the Barbara Hanrahan biography and just haven't felt like following through with anything, not even her books.

But today I read aloud to the Aged Poet the splendid article on Jessica Anderson by Susan Sheridan in September's ABR and felt the juices stir. Tonight I'll dig out my HSC copy of Tirra Lirra, and then I'll keep my eyes peeled for a copy of The Commandant, which sounds good.

As you were.

Except if you're Sophie Cunningham. Does the latest news about Meanjin mean that you're going to concentrate on your writing? Because I've been hanging out for that Leonard & Virginia novel for a few years now...

PS: OMG I just nearly wet myself:
funny pictures of cats with captions

am just trying to get onto twitter and find out more about the Meanjin biz. (My account is slow because we have been greedy on teh Intertubes.) Peter Craven seems to think in the Age today that it has summat to do with MUP trying to put it online again.
And yes, I want to read her leonard book too. Now, daddy, Now!

The Commandant is one of THE great underrated Australian novels (IMHO) and one of my absolute favourites.

I have just begun to read again, now that E is more self-reliant. Starting lightweight with a Kerry Greenwood murder mystery, and Stieg Larsson. It's a good feeling to be immersed again.

Batcat is awesome.

Oh Batcat is just like my late old cat (minus the mask of course.) Charcoal Tabby. RIP Darcy - she might make an appearance, perhaps, seeing it's Halloween and she's buried under a Callistemon just outside the front door.
OK as you were.
