105 things...

Shiloh wrote down 105 things about her self. I thought it might make an interesting post.

1. I am a librarian
2. That doesn’t mean I wear glasses and my hair in a bun.
3. Wait, I do wear glasses.
4. I do like books, yes, thanks for asking
5. But I don’t get to read them at work…
6. I spend most of my time at work at my ‘puter
7. Looking at things that represent books
8. I’m not allowed to borrow the books at the library I work at
9. This makes me sad
10. Sometimes I see a book I just crave so much
11. But I can’t read it
12. And the libraries up here charge you for reserving your books’
13. Which is a bit stingy I think
14. I like Jane Austen
15. I wish she would write more
16. But then she would be waay too old
17. I like Thomas Hardy too
18. But he is a bit depressing
19.But who wouldn’t be if you lived among the legalistic Catholics/Orthodox christians of his day?
20.I am married
21.My husband is wonderful
22.God gave him to me because God knew it would be good for my character to learn to serve him
23.But also because I need him to lead me/look after me
24.I think Lead and Look after are pretty much the same thing
25.I mean look at Ephesians where the man has to love his wife like he loves himself.
