We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

We passed upon the stair

The good news is that we've lot of new books coming in for our libraries, particularly for Carbootsale Library, which may be opening very soon.

The bad news is that we've got seventy-two boxes of books in the fire escape corridor.

The good news is that after a fire inspection report we'll start storing incoming boxes in the dispatch room, where they should have been going for the past two decades.

The bad news is that it's all a bit academic really: the book fund's been frozen 'cos the council's skint.

I see David Bowie is doing the muse job again for article titles to continue "...We spoke of was and when/Although I wasn't there/He said I was his friend"

Fantastic. And actually you should see this too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPH1bvbIWhY

"the book fund's been frozen..." The good news is that people will then only be able to read Old Books, which are inherently better and more educative. The bad news is that, yes, and then they won't bother bringing them back to the library.

Pat: quite so...

Major: you caught me! Nice clip, though I prefer his voice when he was younger.

Gadjo: no: they'll only be able to borrow old new books. I wish the cut had come before we could have ordered all those Dan Browns.

Just had to pop in and tell you how much I admire the word "skint". It makes me smile every time.
