Well, it has been a productive evening, hasn't it? I did the work on my car, cleaned out the front seat (and wasn't that a mess?), and dragged Wolfie off to the mall so I could buy some shoes for the wedding. (My dress shoes got packed somewhere when I moved and haven't been seen since.) I found shoes and a purse (my purses got packed too) in record time at JCPenney (on sale, both of them, 30% off -- I spent less than $60), and we skipped into the mall proper to find an ATM, some drinks, and to look at Waldenbooks for the book Wolfie helped illustrate. It wasn't there -- not that their "New Age" section is particularly extensive. Or particularly well-organized. Or particularly diverse -- we're talking heavy on Cunningham and Ravenwolf, here. So we weren't terribly surprised, and we'll check at Barnes Ignoble later. It'll take some time for it to gain momentum, but I think it's terribly well-written, and Wolfie knows that I'd tell him if I thought it was a piece of crap, even if Tannin and Raven are his friends. And of course, I'm partial to (most of) the illustrations. There was another guy, Sean someone, who also did illos for the book, but I'm not as enamored of them. There're one or two that I don't dislike, but he has a heavier hand than Wolfie.

Ooh, I just looked at Amazon, and they say they only have three copies left in stock! (I weonder if they had more than twenty...) There's one negative review, but I think the reader missed the point of the book. It's not a how-to, or a cookbook of magic, it's a guide to adapting what you might already be doing that has a pastoral slant to the city and its unique and individual energy. Idiot.

They have 26 copies at Powell's. I love their site, and their newsletter. I wish I could go there, but it's in WA.

A warm front seems to have moved in. I went outside to get something out of my car and it's downright steamy. I guess it's an improvement over this afternoon, and if it stays warm, tips will be better tomorrow... but I'm not hopeful.

Dang, I'm finally tired. I guess setting stoves on fire and shoe shopping can get you all charged up. To bed with me.

i feel: tired tired
