It's not AIM, But..

EL set up a pweb Discord, which was mentioned to some people on facebook, but obviously we don't have everyone there. If anyone would like to join it, send me a pm and I'll give you an invite link. It's pretty quiet right now, but if people are interested, it would give a chance to have a chat setti...

Re: Guilty Pleasures and Irrational Irritations

It makes sense, especially when it comes to missing books (that remain missing, that is), even though it sucks. I'm a little shocked at library fees going into collection, though.

Re: Things that I love

It thankfully rained before and after we arrived back in BC for a visit, so there hasn't been much smoke here, either, which is a relief. It was really bad just before we arrived.

Re: Guilty Pleasures and Irrational Irritations

Ahahahah EL once had 1000 pounds in library fines, between missing books and late fees. To be fair, this was in amidst the end of a pretty intense pregnancy and the various academic libraries forgave most of the fines when the books were returned and explanations given. It really sucks that your cur...

While this is possible, I had got to question how strong the tea you've had has been. Because strongly brewed tea should have flavour... But then I also really love tea.

Sadly we did not have time to look at it. We were restricted by the bus times (one bus in and one bus out, Sundays and Bank Holidays only during the peak season). I would love to go back and see that and the Medieval deer park, as well as seeing the abbey again.

Yesterday we went to Fountains Abbey . It was kind of incredibly spectacular.

I'll keep that in mind, then, for future. The volume I'm borrowing from a friend has the fourth one in there, and it feels odd to not finish the bound volume, but I don't want to burn out on it either. I'll probably at least get to reading Tehanu at some point.
