The election is over. Thanksgiving and Christmas haven't yet arrived. The old Congress probably isn't going to do anything dramatic before the new Congress is sworn in. That takes care of politics until after the first of the year.
The Sunday morning shows somehow seemed terribly blah with the horrors of the war unchanging, the yammering about the Dem leadership vote dying down, TomKat officially joined in unholy wedlock, and the only scandal a 5th rate bit of garbage to air on Fox featuring someone who slaughtered their wife a decade ago, but garbage is what Fox does best.
That leaves sorting the CDs, DVDs and bookcases. Somehow they all manage to wander out of their proper alphabetized places and meander to visit friends. So Little Women is cuddling up to The Once and Future King. and for some reason The book of Common Prayer is next to The Victorian Household. I suppose those Victorian cooks must have prayed a lot over wood stoves.
Everytime I tackle this project, the variety of human interests and experiences never ceases to amaze. How in the world did the same species that produced Gregorian Chants (Third Shelf) come up with a performer like Meatloaf (Shelf Five). There is a DVD featuring Baryshnikov near the DVD for Usual Suspects, and for some reason To Kill A Mockingbird is hanging out near Callahan's Time Travel Saloon.
The history section goes from Panorama of the Classical World to 1968 The Year That Rocked The World, but what can you expect from someone who saw Happy Feet yesterday and will make an effort to see Bobby when it comes out at the end of the month.
So what is lurking on your shelves? Anything unusual in your interests?
