I came home from class (Ann[e] is officially calling me Cleo now; she seems to be pleased with her copy of the book, and I tested out the This book: *is signed* bit on her, and it seemed to go over well), and my poor dog meets me at the door and then I notice he can't even get up the stairs hardly. He's holding his front right paw up and limping really, really badly. My mother's initial diagnosis was "arthritis aggravated by the sudden cold," and I was like, "Fool, you have arthritis--has it ever hit you with a stabbing pain in a single, localized spot on the bottom of your foot?" But even after we got Lucky to cooperate and roll over, we couldn't find anything in his paw. Fortunately (kind of), Meko's having a tooth extracted tomorrow, so Lucky can tag along and get his paw examined. I feel so bad for him, though, because somehow he hurt himself pretty badly, it seems, in the two hours that I was gone, and he's used to running upstairs and down all day long. Plus, he sleeps upstairs in my room. Poor baby.

From rockgeisha: the inspiration behind "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" The final section is actually a brief discussion of the Oates story and remarks she made about her writing process.
I was browsing Project Gutenberg and came across something on their top 100 called The Bradys and the Girl Smuggler or, Working for the Custom House. How can you NOT download that?
The mystery of V.C. Andrews. Namely, who's writing books "by" a woman who's been dead nearly twenty years now. I keep meaning to pick up some of her stuff, because seriously, Flowers in the Attic is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. "EAT THE COOKIE, MOTHERRR!"
Antique Lace is back in the main BPAL catalogue, rescued from discontinuation. Although, if you paid $100 for a bottle on eBay, as I have heard has happened, you may not be so pleased about this development.
Can anyone tell me what's going on here? I logged into Yahoo Messenger, and shortly before it crashed (again), I was able retrieve the following messages left for me four days ago:

Jigga what, now?
Anyhoo. I've been having trouble sleeping lately, and suddenly today I feel deliciously tired, so I'm grabbing a glass of milk and hitting the sack early.
