Day is Night and Night is Day

I think I've completely reversed my sleep schedule now.

I got to bed at 5:30 AM Saturday after the booksale. Woke up at 2:30PM.
Went over to Karl's house with Daniel, Ben and Robert (Higgins) to play Shogun at about 8pm, between pickups, travel and a house tour (Karl has been a geek and collecting stuff for decades) we started around 9 or 9:30, and the game was over at 3AM. Having just knocked out Higgins and Ben on turn 5, Karl killed my last army and jumped to 49 provinces on 6, although it was a near run thing.

Boardgames and Beer are great fun.

Upon getting home, I decided that I might as well get around to reading "Busman's Honeymoon". OMFG!!! That book is MINT! From the very beginning, where the argument about "obey" and Helen's antics, to almost the end, it was just amazing. So Good. Words to not express. Etc. Read it all, and went to sleep around 7:30AM Sunday.

So I woke up today (Sunday) about 3:30PM, went over to Daniel's flat, where I retrieved my book haul from Ben's room and we drove it over to my place. I counted, and I ended up with 97 books. Including:

A 12 volume set of Sir Walter Scott's Waverly novels
15 Heyer
1 Sayers
1 Patrick O'Brien (HMS Surprise)
1 Alexander Kent
a LOT of Alister MacLean (sp)
Mirror Dance
and a whole lot more.

A full list & spreadsheet with categories, etc will be posted sometime after I get my computer back.
