Fortress Friday #9

Gosh, I have a lot of stuff.  Thank goodness for shelves.

I really can’t get over the amount of stuff I have.  One of my favorite types of things that I have is books, though.  I think they’re a staple for life.  John Waters said, “If you go home with somebody, and they don’t have books, don’t fuck ’em!”  I think that’s pretty accurate. Books are hot and reading is sexy.  So I have a bunch.

IMG_2286My favorite author (after J.K. Rowling) is a gent by the name of Gregory Maguire.  He has written quite a few books, and I’m rather proud of my collection of his works.  He has spoken locally a couple times, and I’ve been lucky enough to meet him twice, so most of my books of his are signed by him.  He’s so clever.  His most well known book is Wicked, The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, which is amazing.  Its actually the beginning of a four book series, all of which are beautifully written.  He has also written books about Cinderella and Snow White.  He takes these commonly known fairy tales and brings them back to a more Grimm Fairy Tales feel to them, which is how they were originally written.  They’re creepy and fun, and fantasy, so I love them.

IMG_2287I also really like sunglasses.  My front pair are SpectraSpecs, like Luna Lovegood’s in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  I also have a couple pairs of Starkid sunnies, which just makes me super happy.  Gotta love those Starkids.

I guess that about wraps it up for this week.  Adios, Fangirls, and have a great weekend!
