OH FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE

there is water coming through my bedroom ceiling.
Have just run upstairs (well, walked v. carefully as half the stairs are missing) and informed builders, who are clueless (they have left a hose-thingy turned on, even a civilian like me can see the spreading pool of water on bare floorboards) but v. apologetic.

GRRRRRRR.

Had a minor 3-for-2 accident in Waterstones earlier (I wanted to buy a copy of The Girls for my friend M's birthday, and it was in the 3-for-2, so obviously ...)

I've just spent ten minutes trying to guess the title of one of the books by entering possibilities in the LibraryThing search box ('catastrophe' produced too many, 'catastrophic physics' produced the wrong ones, 'problems catastrophe physics' produced none at all) before conceding defeat, removing myself from the sofa and going into the other room to look at the actual book (which is Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl, because I can't walk past a title like that when it appears on the fiction table).

(The other one is Alexander McCall Smith's Dream Angus, in the Canongate Myth series.)
