Knowing when to give in


Bloglines, I'm not going to mince my words here, or break it to you gently: it's all over between us. I don't know if you noticed, but I actually dumped you about a month ago.
I'd got fed up with your lack of attention, your seeming lack of knowledge that I existed...but the final straw was when you went away. For a day. Without telling me about it.
Eventually, you got your idiot friend the plumber (or whatever he claims to be) to make an excuse on your behalf, but it was too late. I didn't trust you any more. How could I, when you left me in the lurch like that?
At least Google was there for me in my time of need. I'd given it a backup version of my feeds long ago...I never thought I'd have to turn to it in desperation.
Look what you drove me to, Bloglines.

Goodbye.

Oh that scared me. I thought you were divorcing me again.

Seriously though I'd never heard of bloglines and evidently I dont need to bother now!

Welcome to the dark side - Google claims another soul to its black flabby heart. You're in good company - I dumped bloglines a while back and moved across to Google Reader.

@Geeklawyer You know I'd never marry you again. Fool me once... :)

@Phil The only reason I held out so long against Google is, 'cos, well, it's Google? It's turning into as big a monopoly as Microsoft, and monopolies are never good!

Whaaat? Monopoly is great! With the dog, and the hat, and the thing... ;-) The other thing about google is that it works, doesn't it? Can you knock that? BTW, I don't have shares in google...

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour! Dollshouse insta-library (including 50 Shades of Grey, and the Hunger Games trilogies) Miniature haunted library Miniature Victorian library Still one of my favourites: themed mini
