Post 2354 - Tuesday

It is past 10:30.  I will turn in shortly.

My iron levels were low enough this morning that I had to get some extra sleep today.  That didn't stop me from having a nap after I got home from work this evening.  It won't stop me from sleeping yet more in the next little while.

Patricia returned to the city this evening.  She had been at the cottage for a few days.  I was at my mother's for a couple of days.  Maybe someone should live in this house in Halifax from time to time, huh?

Something I wanted to mention that I have kept forgetting to is my twitter account.  There is content there of a Bevboy nature that you won't see otherwise.  For example, whenever I finish reading a book on my kindle,  it offers me a chance to tweet that I finished reading the book.  This tweet in turn feeds my facebook status, which can launch some discussion about the book in question.

If you care, I just finished reading Peter Criss' book about his life in and out of KISS.  It is the first of the KISS members' memoirs that I have read.  I have downloaded Ace Frehley's and Gene Simmons'.  Paul Stanley is probably working on his now.

I thought Criss was very honest in his book, wasting no opportunity to make himself look like a jerk, even when he was trying to justify some of his slovenly behaviour.  I look forward to reading the other 2 books and hope that Paul Stanley does one as well.

I am currently reading a biography of silent film actor Harold Lloyd.  It is interesting, but the way it is formatted for the kindle leaves much to be desired.    Much.  For example, there is a "fun facts" feature sprinkled throughout the book.  It is in a different font and presentation, the result being a washed out look that makes it nearly impossible to read on my kindle.  No.  The e-reader technology isn't perfect, and this is a perfect example of how.  When a book with no frills whatsoever is translated to kindle, with any typos corrected, a kindle reading experience can be absolutely fine.  Any special formatting, however, can and does affect the reading experience in a way that isn't absolutely fine.

Like you care.

Tomorrow we're having our annual Toastmasters elections.  I will yet again be running those elections. I should pimp myself out to a Lion's club or an Oddfellows club or something.  I could use the money.

You guys have a good evening.  Time for my 6.5 hours of sleep to add to all the other sleep I have had in the last 24 hours.
