Of Kitties & Books & Shopping

Yesterday we adopted a new kitten.  Her name is Kobold (or, as I call her, Kobold Blue Marie Callahan - my husband says "No middle names", but this is one thing he'll just have to deal with.  ;).

She is only 12 weeks old and it's been a long time since I had a kitten that young.  Therefore, I'd forgotten how they do nothing but sleep, eat and mew.  She is *terrified* of Avery, who decided that she must be a new toy for him.  That bird...

I'm thrilled that Dearly, Departed arrived this week.  Of course I purchased it in hardcover, because the price is right.  I don't an ereader and I never will.  Give me something sturdy to hold in my hands, with pages to turn.

That said, as I said on Spooky Southcoast last Saturday, I know that ebooks are here to stay and that cannot be ignored.  So maybe I don't want an ereader, but plenty of other readers are enjoying the new technology!

Since it's Wednesday, I went to the thrift store on RAF Mildenhall.  The one on Lakenheath isn't quite as nice - it's larger and, while they both have that icky, musty smell, I find that the one on Mildenhall is easier to browse because it is smaller.  Plus, it's within walking distance.

Well, today I was excited to find "Tin Man" on DVD!  In fact, they had two copies there.  I snagged one for $2 and am very pleased.  My husband hasn't seen it yet (I don't think), and I'm sure that he will enjoy it as much as I do.

I also picked up "This is Spinal Tap" and have to decide if I should give it to my husband now or save it as a gift.  I have no idea if he has ever seen it, but part of me hopes that he hasn't.  I love, love, love showing him new movies that he has never seen, and watching his reaction.

  1. I am a convert. I luv ebooks, I luv my kindle, you can have it when you pry it from my cold dead hands.

  2. LOL - I think that's the way many of us "Physical books only!" people feel, so it's great that there are so many options. :D
