Library meme #1: The System.

THERE IS NO SYSTEM.

Once upon a time, there was a system.Then we had our earthquake and all the books came tumbling down. And I put them all back up but we had another and another and the bookshelf kept falling. Enormous amounts of frustration and apathy set in, I put everything back on the shelf and pushed my desk up against it and didn’t look at it for a very long time. Now the books just sit where they fit.

I kept acquiring books: see the floor shelves.

The best books, my favourite series,are the only things organised, in that bookshelf headboard which is one of the best purchases ever (thanks mum&dad <3<3<3)

flatmate Lara on Sebastian Stan’s amazing face

plays

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England’s foam

99 years today.
