I have another confession to make. Yes, I seem to be confessing all over Passionate Reads. Just think of yourselves as my pseudo-priests. The dual-computer screens between us shall act as our veil for privacy’s sake.
I am obsessed with the Kindle screen savers. Probably in what a professional therapist would deem an “unhealthy” way. Some are cute. Some really are. I can look at them and they make me smile, or at least not turn my head and barf.
Others are not okay. I’m sorry, Ralph Ellison, you were a cool dude and all, and I respect your career. But if I roll over in the middle of the night and reach for my cell phone, your face is not one I want staring back at me. Same thing with Agatha Christie. Sorry, Aggie…not what I want to see first thing in the AM. The faces are just so…right there staring at you! Like one of those paintings whose eyes look like they’re following you around the room? Like that.
And so, I have taken to actually turning my Kindle off, waiting to see what screen saver pops up. And if I don’t like it, I will actually turn my Kindle back on and off again so that I get a new one. Repeat process until I get one I like. Or can at least look at in the middle of the night without blinking like an owl.
If you had to pick a screen saver, what would it be? I’d probably put up a picture of my dog…cause he’s lovable and squishy and fuzzy and adorable. (Pic of him when he was just a baby. He’s 4 years old now.)
