How to tease Dave

Well, red

Or scarlet?

Z said...

As in, his sins are scarlet but his books are read? Surely that's only half true?

Sarah said...

Have I missed something?

Z said...

Well, I think that Dave orders his books by subject, author and alphabetically rather than primarily by colour. But I just saw this and thought of him.

Dave said...

Most of my books are well-red.

Z said...

That was the impression I was trying to give, Dave. I'm sure your desk is tidy though.

No 'blue' stuff then?....;-)

Dave said...

Absolutely nothing blue. And yes, my desk is perfectly tidy. No piles of paper for me.

Must be a kind of journal, HZ or ZRG, at least published in the 160th year or so.

liar liar...pants on fire...

Oooh I love books. I would love to have a proper big book case up to the ceiling that requires a slidey ladder to reach the top shelf. I suppose that would also require a Georgian house with tall ceilings to accommodate it too, and possibly someone to dust them!

I'd like one of those chairs that look like a dining chair but split in half, flip over and become library steps -wonderful things.


I'd like a library as well please.

?
I didn't press twice - honest injun!

Z said...

Just cheese, 4D.

There are certainly a lot of editions, Mago. I like to mix my books up well. Makes it more interesting.

I'd love a proper library, but as I can reach the ceilings of several rooms here, library steps would be wasted on this house. At present, there are piles of books in the hall waiting for a home. I don't know where to put them.

If you can reach the ceilings and we all now know the Sage is about twice the height of you, does he have a permanent stoop indoors?

Oh, and our local supermarket's Easter eggs went on sale on Christmas Eve.

I just have unnaturally long arms.

The "Back to School" signs in the shops at the start of August used to be bad enough. It's all counter-productive with me, it makes me switch off until it's almost too late to buy anything at all.
