“Oh Bugger,” said Pooh, “I’ve gone and done it again!” :S
I was sitting at the dining room table this evening, staring at nothing in particular and my glance landed on the shelf on my book case which is full of jewellery books… and found myself wondering, ‘Do I already have a copy of that Secular Goldsmith’s Work in Medieval Europe that I was eyeing off on the Book Depository?’ and then ‘No, I don’t see a hideously garish orange hardcover jewellery book on the shelf, so I guess I never actually got a copy.’ which was swiftly followed by “OH SHIT! I think I put an order in for books, like yesterday or even this morning, but I’m not sure!’
So it was with a deep sense of apprehension that I checked my email and noticed that I did indeed place an order with the Book Depository this morning and how fucking awesome was it that I have no recollection of having done so!! :S Yay, for drug fucked morning hang over shopping. It’s like a Lucky Dip, you never know what you’re going to get. I must have been on total crack this morning though, because not only did I buy the Secular Goldsmith’s Work in Medieval Europe that promises to be a very interesting read, but I also ordered a copy of Winnie Ille Pu – A.A. Milne’s classic Winnie the Pooh story translated into Latin by Alexander Lenard, which portends to be a less interesting and potentially disturbing read!
What was I thinking? :S I must not forget the rules… I must not forget the rules:
Rule No. 1 – Do not speak to govt officials, uni professors, family relatives, tradesmen or the general public before one’s nightly drug cocktail has worn off.
Rule No. 2 – Do not engage in internet shopping whilst under the influence!
Rule No. 3 – Refer to Rule No. 1 and Rule No, 2. 🙁
Though on closer inspection, perhaps Winnie Ille Pu will have a certain absurd charm about it…
