get away from me

I think I might be coming with something. My tum still feels a bit odd even though my hangover has long gone - and as I only had about four glasses of wine, it was hardly a huge case of alcohol poisoning or anything. Anyway, I have horrible heart burn and my stomach is making very strange noises, so I hope I haven't got some form of plague.

In other news, the Sunfire books I got on Ebay (inspired by katemonkey's enthusiasm) arrived the other day and I am already addicted. The sheer cheese! So much fun. I want more, but alas lots of ebay and abebooks sellers seem to be charging frankly outlandish shipping costs (it does not cost twenty dollars to send two books to Ireland. I've sent enough packages from the US to know that) so it seems my desire for anachronistically spunky young ladies torn between two charismatic young gents will forever be thwarted. Bah.

Oh, and has anyone else listened to Nellie McKay? I read the interview with her in the last issue of Bitch and was midly intrigued, but since I downloaded a couple of tracks from the magnificently titled Get Away From Me the other day I'm in love. Like Fiona Apple with a snarky sense of humour and better tunesi.

Oh, gosh. I love the Sunfire books. Merrilee and her sister-in-law, rich Emily, Laura and the suffragettes, and one who traveleled the Oregon trail. I'm going to have to get those out of my mom's attic.

I know what you mean by shipping charges. I usually end up paying two to three times the cost of my package in shipping rates to the US.

The US National Public Radio had McKay on live a few months ago - it was awesome. You can hear some songs from her in-studio performance here:

I've been meaning to pick up her album since I heard that interview, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

Oh, my dear, Sunfire books are wonderful!

And, if you like, you can have them post books to me and I will ship them to you for whatever it costs me, and not their exorbitant shipping rates. :) Since usually it's not costly to have them shipped within the States, where most Sunfire sellers are.

You are an angel! I actually just won an auction, so I'll check the shipping prices. But if you could send them on to me, that would be fantastic.

It will not be a problem at all! I'll also keep an eye out at used book stores, in case they have ones that I already have, if you like. :)

I'll need your address again, though; I was updating my address book last night and realised I never entered yours and that e-mail has long since been deleted. Oops.

Oh, and my address is in a post from yesterday, and is linked on my info page, in case you don't have mine. :)
