A long time wish has come true! For my birthday my dad and mom got me a typewriter! Oh yes, and this was the big 18, which is (in America) the step into "adulthood" (kind of, you don't really get to do anything exciting though, can just vote and get drafted into the army). Anyway, about my typewriter, it's an old one. Solid metal, with a fabric ribbon which still has ink in it, none of the keys stick (shockingly), and the only problems it has is that the ribbon doesn't move on it's own and the caps lock doesn't work. Both of those are fine with me though, I just love that I can type little notes and letters on it!
Not to mention how nice it is to see it sitting on my desk when ever I'm in my room. There will be more on what I've aquired lately later, I just thought this deserved a post of it's own, and you all deserved a post sooner as well. I just can't get over how wonderful you all are.
The end of summer is going wonderfully, I've been getting out alot, and making sure I enjoy every minute of it. Life is good.


Love, Clara

Happy Birthday {again!}!! :)

Oooh! I love your typewriter! I have one too, but it's not as old - it's electric.
Typewriters fill me with the desire to write the next great American novel! In reality, I just end up typing stories with a lot of mistakes in them. XD

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Oh, how I wish I could bake you a pretty cake! But perhaps you will receive something in the mail. One never knows what one might find in one's mailbox♥

Oh, third comment! I'm sorry about this :)
Of course it can wait-I was only wondering if we could expand it a little. We already had, with the Independent Review posts, but I was thinking (since the name is Bookish Etcetera) that we could post about our areas of expertise, one might say.
What I am saying is that I really really want to post about history :DD But it would be odd for me to just post about non-book things alone, and anyway there must be many interesting things that you know!
I suppose I should stop there. Do think about it!
