tn_2010-02-11 Marlowe and Doctor Zhivago

My mom found this book at Goodwill last week. Through my mom’s limited language skills (mostly Google), she thinks this is a copy of Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak in Dutch! Mom has read this book—in English—a long time ago. I think it is strange for a book in Dutch to be found at Goodwill by a person such as my mom who reads blog entries by people who live in the Netherlands!

Mom has found several new friends at Goodwill lately. She thinks that someone must’ve gotten rid of their entire Build-a-Bear collection. Mom found the following new friends:

  • Larkspur- a bear with a Build-a-Bear patch on her foot; still unsure of what kind she is.
  • Miles- a shaggy dog
  • Morton- a Baby’s First Bear Blue; he comes from sometime between 1997 and 1998!
  • Naples- a velvet teddy
  • Sheridan- last year’s St. Patrick’s Day teddy

She also found some new clothes for us. A lot of the clothes she buys for us come in grab bags of various different sizes and origins. The person who gets the most out of the entire thing is usually Tilia, because she is Barbie sized!

Mom says that I should admit that we have plenty to do online. With Twitter, BearPlace, and the like, we spend a good half hour each day checking my various online profiles. She says that along with her various online profiles, we probably spend too much time online. I don’t think it’s much of a problem! All my friends are online!

  1. That's indeed dutch!
    It does say it's the first book (eerste deel=first part) so looks like it isn't the complete story.
    And there's lots of animals to be found at good will stores. My owner gets lots of hippos from a friend who rescues them from good will stores.
