Let there be LIGHT!

There is a high pressure sodium security light shining brightly into my bedroom, courtesy of the newly constructed NTB. It is in fact so bright that I can read a newspaper while I lay in bed -- without turning on my reading lamp. The shade and blinds help by dimming things but they're still glowing far more than they normally would. THat glow pisses me off no small amount. The construction company, store owner and I are going to Have Words about this tomorrow. This was not part of the deal. After the day I had at work I didn't need to come home to this.

In other news, on Sunday I picked up Neil Gaiman's American Gods and have started reading it. nonethewiser and moryssa both suggested it in my entry from the 17th, so I decided to grab a hardcover copy since jasra was nice enough to give me a coupon for 25% off one item at Borders. I'm a couple dozen pages in and enjoying it thoroughly -- it has much of the same "Flavor" as Good Omens but follows a completely different plotline. On a related note, I badly need some bookshelves in my household. I don't mean the fiberboard junkers you can pick up at Wal-Mart, I mean I need bookshelves that are made out of solid wood. Oak would be nice. IKEA need not apply.
