Five Words: I couldn't leave without it.

Trekked on over to the bookstore tonight. Sick of being cooped up in the house though I still am not 100% better yet. I'm blaming David. He printed out the 30% off coupons. Not that that matters as I probably would've paid $35 for it. I mean, c'mon. Look at Rex Ray's work. I looked at the cover and said "Please, please, don't let the rest of the book be this appealing. Please." Merde! Yup. I had the book in one hand and fumbled for the cash in another. *sigh*. The addiction does not end. I would have made one hell of a librarian.


I'm blaming Taylor for the fact that when I got home I had to order Amy Butler's new book. *sigh* Mom is coming out here on Wednesday night. Where am I going to put all of these books?
I guess my excuse is that my birthday is in 10 days. I'll just be singing quietly "Happy Birthday to meeeee...."

I do not want to hear another word about any new books out now or within the next two months.

Um. Yeah, you do realize I'm B.S.'ing all of you with that, right? I can always look at the new books, right?

Will someone please explain the difference to me, again, between the Republicans and the Democrats...Anyone hear/read Nancy Pelosi's comment about protesters in front of her home? Great article here.

“If they were poor and they were sleeping on my sidewalk, they would be arrested for loitering, but because they have ‘Impeach Bush’ across their chest, it’s the First Amendment....In elaborating on this comment, Pelosi tried to backtrack from her spontaneous display of her real attitude towards antiwar activists. “They are advocates,” she said. “We are leaders.”

Alright, Ms. Pelosi, if you're a leader, then fucking LEAD and do something. Oh, I dunno. Start with Impeaching Cheney...THEN Bush. Then bring the troops HOME.

I am still not 100% better either. What is up with this cling-on cold?

I blame you, by the way, for my excess in books. Why must you post so many cool books!? I am irresistibly compelled to run to Amazon and order. Thank goodness I have Amazon prime!

Oh and you share a birthday with Fran (www.artsyfran.com) and I am always ridiculously happy when people share birthdays. No idea why...but life is about the little things, right?
