Snow!

Yay, first snow of the winter on my birthday!

Only I'm freezing, I'm paranoid my boiler light has gone out, and I'm going shopping tomorrow so snow = bad.

On the other hand, I have Guitar Hero II and I took my dad to Voltaire and Rousseau (about 3/4 of the way down), the best second-hand bookshop in Glasgow, or possibly anywhere. My mum too, but it's my dad who shares my "Oooh, shiny, bookshop..." tendencies.

Thanks.

Ooh, I don't think I ever found the one in Paisley. Maybe gone before I got there - that was 2001, I think.

I believe second-hand bookshops near unis have been hit hard by abebooks...

Ah, I didn't find out much about the halls and stuff - I was just there for a nine-month postgrad and I commuted. But all our lectures were in a couple of central buildings - the only time I went on a bus excursion was to the sports hall, which was about half an hour away, in a field.

I knew Craigie was part of Paisley, but somehow I thought people would be taught at one or the other, not both!!

I'm in a big blanket now, so the snow is good!

I got a guide to Western philosophy, some more PG Wodehouse books and a book about wordplay, so yay! And I quite often pick up books because of their covers too :)

Happy Birthday!

I came back from the hospital in snow today - slightly slushy, but definitely snow. Cheered me right up.

Thanks!

It looked for a bit like it was going to lie here, but it seems to have started raining instead.

You can spot who hasn't looked at "My LJ" for days, can't you?

Heh, thanks :) I never look at it now, so I never know anyone's birthday unless they mention it or we have a mutual friend who mentions it!

I tend to look at it when I know one is imminent to check. :S

Many happy returns!

And I'm very jealous of the snow. There's none over here at all, despite all my best hopes.

Though it's probably a bit far for you, there's apparently a very good second hand book shop in Inverness. My bookish friends take trips up to see it specifically. I can get you the name if you're likely to go that way.
