Not because I was seized with a longing for James McAvoy (sp?), although I don't think he would have done it for me even if I were into that sort thing, nor for Anne Hathaway, who has lost her appeal for me as I drifted toward... monosexuality? Unisexuality? Fussy ingratitude for what is put before me? Nor even for Dame Maggie. No, I had to breathe because I wanted the English library so very badly. Mobile shelves, of the sort which may be gathered up and put in a van will simply not do; nor will bare walls. Nor will a place where a normal human may reach all the books without ladders. And there, my loves, is the very reason I despise my mobile lifestyle and intimate familiarity with forwarding postcards so much; I have resigned to losing all my friends and all my Places whenever the next love affair ends, because it is a just and natural consequence for being so careful with one's own precious heart as to not find some way to love for all time, tending and mending and shepherding wisely, let alone some other person's. It is that one must regard books as cumbrances, and burdens to those loving friends and family who are helping you to once again uproot your life, and one must cull them so viciously...

Awoken two hours before my wonted time, because I had called the landlord about my furnace not working. I said I hadn't. Fellow insisted that he *had* to check out my furnace and could not check with landlord to make certain he had the right house. (He had the wrong house, and actually left to get a new filter somewhere 20 minutes away because "that may be what is causing the [non-existent] problem" before returning to admit that he did have the wrong house... and repeating the supply run.)

Ugh. Of what possible benefit could it be to me to lie and say that I hadn't called for work on my furnace? I know this fellow is on retainer, so he doesn't get anything out of it himself. Courage, self. Nine and one half hours until I can sleep again.
