I had a dream that I had this great idea and I was going to write a book with pages marked A, B, C, D or E. All the A pages were a novella for one character, and all the B pages a novella for another character and so on. Since novellas are novels with one main idea and novels have several main ideas coming together, the book could be read for any of the five novellas or as a whole. There were unmarked pages too, meant only to be read if the book was read all together, as the blank pages tied all the separate novellas together.

It sounds like an awesome idea but yeah, I'm not that clever.

I did, however, get to the bank today. This pleases me greatly. And I bought two more pairs of fingerless gloves because apparently I need enough to make a giant pile I can dive into. And I had dumplings at Riccarton.

I did worry that while I was eating, the shopping centre would fall in on me. But it did not. Which was kind of it.

One day I will be able to dye my hair again. I don't want to while we are still having water shortages, since my hair is so thick it takes about 45 minutes to wash out. But I miss my roots being red!

I am also glad you got to eat with the shopping center intact.


Lara, we needs to talk more and RP more I feel...like something's missing for me. :( *hugs*

It was pretty special!

If you want to do something, say the word! I'm always here! Don't feel sad! *hugs*

I will, as soon as I've had more sleep and not dropping over from having too much coffee and now a droid. I def. will though. *snuggles*

I just want to say that I really want to read your dream-book.

I don't know what it was about! I only was aware of my dream-book's alphabet system.

Have you read Adverbs by Daniel Handler? It's sort of the same, in that it's a pile of short stories that all interconnect in various ways. (They're not quite interleaved like that, though.) The stories are all out of order, and slightly (and purposefully) inconsistent. And there's a volcano.

Handler's writing style is... I don't even have a good way to describe it. It's quirky and weird and rambly and yet manages to plug right into some emotional section of the brain.

Good for you for getting out and reclaiming your life from the tremors. Very brave! The book sounds very modern--I had to read stuff like that in college. unfortunately, shallow me never really got all that stuff. I'm much too concrete. And, yes, I know it was a dream!

Thank you! And yeah, I think it sounds massively wanky and it would need someone with style to pull it off correctly.

The stability of the buildings at yours worries me :( But fingerless gloves are adorable :) :) They can even make me feel so happy for a little while :D
