I have found my new Home Library, which may serve me as well as a Home Pub, at least in the day-time.

I've been to the Franklin library a few times but it's not my town's library, so I usually went to my town one. But my old bully's mother used to work there so most of my memories of the place are being bullied. Well, that and finding Tamora Pierce's works--so it's a place of conflict.

This library I've only entered a few times. It has some amazing rooms! Goodness. And what feels like secret passageways, paintings everywhere... Then, it is technically speaking the first public library in the US (according to this site). It's like a Muggle-friendly Magical Library; I keep expecting Irma to walk into the room at any time.

This room has a set of paintings that spans the whole room with lots of topless lasses with long, luscious hair. The one with a bun, turned away from the viewer, looks rather like Minerva by profile, if only the hair were black rather than brown.

I wasn't ready to attach myself to this place before, but now I'm finding it's just the right time. I'm going to go explore more and then sit down for a good read!

(I've picked up Terrier and Bloodhound, so it looks as though I may be adventuring back into Tammy-land before I go Rowling through Hogwarts again.)

It's snowing it's snowing it's snowing!

I hop for joy over things like this. Really--ask my mother, she had to put up with it in the car. And now I really can't be hassled or guilted for not deleting winter music when it appears on my iTunes DJ.

The feeling was slightly lessened by today's UU-congregation 'class' and the fact that Mr-Motor-Mouth is part of the group. During 'quick introduction' (name, time part of congregation, anything from the reading that struck a chord) he went on this long tangent that I didn't follow; once he'd been talking long enough that the minister reminded him endings existed, I asked "And what's your name?" Which, uh, may have been the littlest bit pointed, but I can't always help it! And he argued with the minister about religious history, which may be merited in the realms of opinion, but generally she tends to know her stuff in her degree area as far as facts go. Altogether, he reminded me of a man I had the misfortune of meeting at a convention once upon a time...

I also have to read the rest of an incredibly boring, poorly-written 'history' book by next week's session. I am not thrilled.

BUT BUT BUT NONE OF THAT MATTERS. WHY?

Because I haven't been in New England for the First Snow since I was 17, and

It's snowing it's snowing it's snowing!!!!!!
