Meanwhile, have purchased the three Hunger Games e-books. Will start on those after I have gotten some work done--probably not before Sunday. I'm getting a little worried about how high expectations are getting--mine for the books, and y'all's for my reaction to them--but I've also been spoiled for the end of the series, so my experience reading them will probably be different from a lot of people's anyway.
Meanwhile-meanwhile, I have also taken down the last of the Christmas decorations (I left the ones up on the Shelf; we stripped our Big Person Christmas tree the very day after Christmas, since it had been up since the beginning of the month) and am getting to take down my calendars, because I have a deep superstition about these things. (Of course, I always have to change the calendar on the first day of the month exactly anyway--or even just take it down on the last day, if it's been a really bad month. You want the changeover to mark a fresh start.) You should do things on New Year's Day that symbolize how you want the rest of the year to go--I've heard you shouldn't take out any kind of garbage or trash because it symbolizes fortune leaving the house instead of coming in. Unless maybe you want it to symbolize dumping all the baggage out of your life. It's all magical thinking, of course, so it's whatever you need it to mean. So I would like to do or write or post something useful tomorrow (but not read or watch anything grimdark). We'll see.
