All insightfully and such, I was just organizing my books, cause I told Ariana I was going to bed, and apparently I'm a liar *cries*.

I finally got all three of the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson together on one shelf. Someone had fun with the covers, I realized.

The first one is a dark silver, lead colored. The middle is brassy or coppery. The third is gold.

Oh, did I forget to mention that the books are (at least somewhat) about alchemy? (Eventually I shall have to read them... >_>)

2 weeks ago or so I was in Barnes and Noble, and I had a good time at the clearance tables. I got Crossroads of Twilight and New Spring, both in hardcover, for $5.98 apiece. I think System of the World (#3 in the Baroque Cycle) was also $5.98, though it may have been $4.99. And then I got my 10% members discount, too. \o/

I couldn't find the CD I was looking for, so I'm ripping a Dr. Demento album. Woot. Now I can listen to the Bulbous Bouffant song anytime I want. I will probably avoid Leonard Nemoy's heartrending rendition of "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins", though. My heart is rent enough from watching the video online. Man, that's trippy.

But...but...The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins is a classic! It is perfection. It is topped only, in my mind, by David Hasselhoff's numerous endeavors into the world of singing.

He's Bilbo (Bilbo)
Bilbo Baggins.
He's only 3 feet tall.
He's Bilbo (Bilbo)
Bilbo Baggins,
Greatest little hobbit of them all.
