just call me pollyanna....

You know, between writing insanely vitriolic friends-only LJ entries about people who annoy me, watching entertainingly saucy 18th century romping on the telly and eating lots of easter egg (I'm a slow eater), I feel much more cheerful today than I did yesterday. Even though Patsington has been sneakily eating most of my egg. And so, in the spirit of spreading spring cheer, I give you a list of cheering things:

1. The light in the long evenings

2. Nellie McKay's Get Away From Me album

3. Venting one's spleen

4. Forthcoming visits from fabulous internet ladies

5. Georgette Heyer novels

6. The very serious babies who go for ponderous walks in the park

7. The feeling of freshly washed, well conditioned hair

8. The fact that the Trinity book sale is on tomorrow

9. Giggling at nonsense first thing in the morning because you share a bed with someone who makes you laugh more than anyone else

10. You.

Awww. Thank you for that. And I hope you're going to have a brilliant time with the fabulous Internet ladies.

I meant to mention to you that somewhere in the house is a photocopy of an article from the I**** T**** about Fan Fiction, which, as soon as I can find it, I'm very much looking forward to reading.

Oh that's nice.
I had some Easter egg yesterday too - I had secreted my Toblerone egg so well (to keep it from the clutches of my greedy offspring) that I had actually forgotten about it. I felt like Nicola finding the stick of rock in her shell box.

Sooo jealous about the Trinity book sale. I once got a Boy's Own Paper annual there, from about 1908, for half-nothing. I love rooting through trestle tables full of cheap books, and the Trinity booksale tends to have pretty eclectic cheap books. But I'm expecting an amazon.co.uk shipment any day now (hurrah!) so I really have nothing to complain about.

The long light is brilliant isn't it? Ah why can't it always be like this?

If I had time I'd do my own list but instead I will just add:

11. Big, big ladies walking their incredibly small dogs outside my work.

I am on a complete Georgette Heyer binge, due to the thread at chicklit and the raptures of another online friend about her. I was looking for something that would make me feel better after dealing with my grandfather's stroke in February, and she exactly fits the bill. And Heyer's horribly underrated too--my favorite rant of late, in fact, is how she's been dismissed by critics who have gladly written reams about writers with lesser gifts.

Can't wait to hear what you find at the Trinity book sale. Even if you don't buy anything, let us know what you saw that made you drool.
