It's Banned Books Week!

It's amazing when you read WHY some of these books have been banned.

For example, take The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis. Banned for use of magical imagery. The same people who want to ban Harry Potter for being satanic are after this one too, and probably can't be bothered to learn that the entire series is a Christian allegory. Just amazing.

Tuesday, September 24, 2002

Spent a little time at Wild Snowflake's abode {which useta also be mine} to swap food and chat. I gave her tomatoes, which is the only thing that grew in my garden this year; she picked up Halo Farms Peach ice cream for me. {For those of you who went to TSC and remember making Halo runs, drool with envy.} She has a long-awaited brand new blog.

I think tonight I am, once and for all, tackling one of the many items on my list so I can scratch it off once and for all. My problem is that I don't just want to create something for the sake of creating it, I want to do it right, and preferrably the first time so I don't have to do it over again.

What I've been trying to work on is a store for the website: for starters it will just have cards and then it will expand to shirts, mugs, and bags. I know next to nothing about how to do this, so I think I have to go with a "phase one" approach and see what happens. I think I really need to jump in and see what the water feels like instead of asking everyone else how cold it is.

It might be just perfect.
