--I have books! Lots o' books, actually. My family went to our favorite local independent book store to pick up Harry Potter, and it turned into a book-buying binge. My personal stash was a gardening FAQ which looked to be about twelve kinds of cool (and also will be a big help with the vegetables, I think), and a book called "A Great and Terrible Beauty", which looks like it features visions and secret societies and magic and corsets and high tea all in Victorian England. And *then*, since my brother was on a hunt for a book in particular, we went to B&N, wherein I got several little classic books, including "The Secret Garden" and the works of Edgar Allen Poe. The thing about all this is the fact that it's not like I'm looking for something to read. I have about twelve thousand books on my reading list, and this only extends it. And yet I cannot resist. Does that make me a bibliophile? Hm.
--Lots of stuff's been happening garden-wise. One of the female pumpkin flowers is starting to show potential signs of being knocked up--the ovary underneath is getting awfully big. I'm hopeful that this means we'll have at least one pumpkin, but we'll see. I may go ahead out there and take a Q-tip to the flower anyway, just to make sure it's been completely fertilized.
--Apparently the squirrels like purslane. Dad said he saw a squirrel gnawing on its flowers this morning, so he brought it closer to the house in hopes of discouraging them. I didn't realize squirrels would go for purslane. Then again, I've heard tell that it's edible, so.
--Last night's Doctor Who reminded me of one of the reasons why I love the show so--even the minor characters are people you want to know more about. Despite the fact that I think I may be one of the last people to see "Gridlock", I'll go ahead and post further thoughts under the cut.( Cut! )
I also realized yesterday that when the opening theme comes on, I instinctively start grinning. I'm such a dork.
