Still, I've been having a great day off. I received in the mail yesterday my latest eBay purchase - the Dorothy Edwards novel, The Witches and the Grinnygog. Nickelodeon aired the British miniseries of that book when I was a kid and I loved it. Still do, in fact. I got the bug in my head to find the original book, which is currently out of print. My cursory glance showed prices of $75+ for the book. Eep! But there was a sale on eBay for a more reasonably priced book (£4.99). I bid and won the book - woot!
Although I started reading the book yesterday (and last night during a bout of insomnia), I read most of it today to finish it just a short while ago. The book was just as delightful as the miniseries was. There were quite a few characters combined for the miniseries (there are 6 lead children in the book, 4 in the miniseries) but the story, for the most part, was faithfully adapted to the series. Much of the dialog by the witches was the same in both. I have a mind to watch the miniseries this evening yet. Heh.
So, despite the nasty, icky weather, I've been having a nice day. Considering I've got 5 billion meetings tomorrow (an exaggeration) I'm rather hoping we get another day off tomorrow. But I'm not counting on it. If we get it, it'll be a pleasant surprise.
(Heh heh - "Herne" is a very appropriate song to be playing right now.)
