I've got Looby Loo trained to drag me away from any display of books on sale--even second hand--with cries of "You're not to buy any more books, Mummy!" Last week I went into town with the Aged P however and bought one book (admittedly twice over, the second copy being a birthday present for my brother (who I fairly safely assume doesn't read this)). So another interstitial completion

[I don't do horoscopes, don't believe in some intervening hand of fate, but I can't avoid sometimes falling into the trap of reading more into coincidence.... Hell, it hits the mood.]
Today's Merriam-Webster Word of the Day is revenant.
[And to add to the cheer...]
This Other Autumn
Dog piss laps lamp posts
That tick 'til dusk sodiums.
Dust dry leaves skitter.
I'm sorry, not much of a Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness here.
