LibraryThing, I think I love you

I should be writing, because I've got to get on the 1:30 train into Cork today, so my time's a little limited, buuuut...

This morning I had email from LibraryThing creator Tim Spalding, who's added a new LT feature: LibraryThing Authors. It's basically just a way for users to easily find what books their favorite authors might have on their shelves, but I think it's pretty darned nifty. :)

(25 minutes later: This is me, LEAVING LIBRARYTHING AND GOING TO WORK!)

Well, that was a big fat waste of time.

I went into the hairdresser's mostly to be told they'd forgotten to do an allergy test, and hadn't gotten my phone number so they could call me in to do one, so they couldn't do anything to my hair until at least 48 hours from now, after they've done a skin test.

Which means that after two years of using X3 as a reason to stick it out with the whole growing the hair thing, I am not going to have fun cool Rogue hair for the movie after all.

I could cry right about now.

On the other hand, while we were standing at the train station I said to Ted I didn't know what I was going to do about the end of the book, and by the time we got on the train I had an idea of what I was going to do, because Ted is a plot machine. He came up with a really good idea that doesn't solve everything, but it gives me somewhere to start, and it'll make for a much more interesting ending than the book currently has. I still don't particularly want to do it, but at least now I have an idea of what I'm doing.

I did come home and finish doing line edits, despite my hair. I feel somewhat proud of myself for that, because I'm really pretty gloomy and it would've been easy to just sit in a funk. Instead I worked in a funk. And I guess that even if I'm sick to the very bleeding death of this book, I do still like Janx and Daisani, which is something.
