Major Disaster at Chez Crider

Bookshelf collapse. Luckily I wasn't in the office when it happened, or I'd now be buried under hundreds of paperbacks, or maybe just cold-cocked by the shelves. How the computer survived, I don't know, but it did. This may slow things down around here for a while. First, I'll have to go through those stages of denial, anger, bargaining, and acceptance.

  1. That's what you get for all that gratuitious Da Vinci Code bashing! Silas was apparently looking for you...

  2. During the Northridge earthquake in 1994, Harlan Ellison was buried beneath a whole pile of books and had to be rescued. True.

  3. Photos! We want to see photos!

    Seriously, what are you putting these shelves up with?

    It's a message, Bill. You were meant to take 10 paperbacks and send them to each of us.

    Trust me - it'll work.

  7. That sucks, especially if any of the books got damaged! Hope not! Glad to hear the PC didn't get damaged...or you for that matter.

  8. Again!? Didn't you have a collapse a year or two back, Bill?

    In an effort to do my part to prevent further mishaps, I voliunteer to take all the Whittingtons and the JUNKIE to alle viate the weight on the shelves and to clear out space for other titles

    Gee, Bill, you could have become a legendary figure, the Charles Valentin Alkan of the blogosphere, but you had to be in another room at the time!

  17. If by chance you had a professional do the installation you can file suit for a defective installation. I'm sure the judge would throw the book at him.
