"how many babies DOES it take to make a bottle of baby oil?"
overheard today at jack in the box (by the manager and employees, no less.):
I can tell i'm aging because i was teetering right on the edge of being offended that the people making my food were screaming this at each other with no care for who was overhearing. i was waiting for the guy with the 4 year old boy to say something, but i wasn't about to complain while they were making my food. i've worked in enough fast food joints to know that if an employee doesn't give a rat's ass if you hear them screaming sexually transmitted diseases across the building, then they certainly won't mind adding a bit of spit (or worse) to your food.
received some of the dark tower stephen king books in the mail today, due to your recommendations, as well as the devil wears prada. i haven't seen the movie, but wanted the book as one of my classmates in my improv classes came up to me (Larie!) and said that she envisioned me as the roommate and couldn't get me out of her head whenever she read it, because she felt i WAS the roommate. she confessed that she didn't know that much about me, but from what she did know, she suspected that i had a personality like the roommate. so i shall read it.

all i can say is, hooray for half.com and for scifi book club's no payment until march + buy one/get one free deals. i can finally rebuild some of my collection i had when i left all of them in phoenix (except the jordan books because that's what i was reading at the time. sigh.) i would have replaced williams' memory/sorrow/thorn books, too, but i read those right before i left phoenix and haven't had a craving again yet. (but it's still one of my top... three? series evur. well, maybe not three. death gate cycle is super number one, and i'll always have a spot in my heart for the shannara books, as they're what got me into the fantasy genre. well, maybe top three.)
so, i have some reading to do, yup.
