Hello all!

I have all my reading mapped out for September through November because I am borderline OCD. Here it is:

A la recherche du temps perdu Proust (this counts as 6 says me)
Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World Haruki Murakami
Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife Mary Roach
Dog Years Gunter Grass
A Fine Balance Rohinton Mistry
The Fuck-Up Arthur Nersesian...

Stephen King's The Gunslinger is a good one. Short too.
it_thing_hard_on:
Under the Black Flag by David Cordingly. It's all about the history and myths about pirates. Quite an enlightening read.

Have you ever actually listened to the Beach Boys' song 'Wouldn't it be Nice?' with headphones? It's like the best song from ten years in the future fell through a time warp or something.

Also, if anyone wants to go to somewhat shitty karaoke tonight (Friday) at the Marco Polo Saloon, give me a ring.

DO NOT EAT OLD PEANUT BUTTER. It will...

Uh oh
Here it comes
The Silly Desire to ramble endlessly
Let me start of by saying
A diet consisting entirely of coffee, bran muffins, and salad
Doesn't even sound good on Paper
In practice it's even worse
You see you lose your day
Because you will run to the bathroom at least five times during the day
And out brains crap
Big...

What, you didn't like AHBWOSG (A heartbreaking work of...)? Everyone likes AHBWOSG. Actually, no. Boring. I like referring to it by initials though.

I placed holds on everything you mentioned at the local library. I'm fucking dying for good things to read.

I took all my calls from the throne



If they really knew you they wouldn't be a bit surprised. whatever

By the way, you didn't enlighten us as to what the other kind of lust was.

Let's talk about the silent fear that grips Seattle.

People in other parts of the world live in fear of droughts, disease, or genocide.

The people in my city are afraid of talking to each other.

Say hello? You must be crazy.

My shirt is nice? You ought to be commited!

Let's eat gas everyone!

SUVs and spoilers barrel through stoplights while my...

When I first moved here from the south eons ago I always said "hi" to people on the streets, and they looked at me like "what do you want?". In the south it's being friendly, here it's a precursor for murder or something.

I'm sorry about your scooter, man.

I cant remember how it goes exactly, but in C.S. Lewis The Screwtape Letters, Screwtape says that to Wormwood that one of the best tools a tempter has at his disposal is to remove a mans consciousness from the present as much as possible. By plunging his head into the past, a devil can force a man to dwell on his...

um

is this what a girl feels like when she shows up to the premiere and discovers someone else wearing her dress?

;-)

go see my move
mrdeity:
Well, frankly, it sucks. My advice? Avoid it all costs. That goes for where I live. Now from what I understand and seen, the northern part of Virginia has a lot more promise. Baltimore is actually pretty cool. Unfortunately, I live in Norfolk.

I had a date last night
With a girl I met online
I ordered all you can eat-fish and chips
Anyway, the date was not going well
She was ugly and WAY stupid
So finally I said, "Look I really don't think we're connecting here. I'm going to order some more fish, but you should probably just go."
She left
I was...

I love you coffee
You are my friend
Yes, I am friends with coffee
Actually coffee and I are more than friends
You are jealous
Jealous of the love that coffee and I have for each other
However, I will not be sticking my penis in coffee
Not after the second-degree burns I got last time
The blister I got made it look like I...

Cosyne rips people apart: Part 1 of 5

Are you poor?
Yeah man, that sucks.
Hey now, don't be too hard on yourself -- we've all been there.
Don't worry though! Payday's just around the corner!
Oh shit! You don't have a job?
Man, that sucks! Was it just an intolerable work environment or were you wrongfully terminated?
What's that...

umm, are you sure its aimed at no one in particular? except it really could be aimed at no one in particular because ive met, like, a lot of those people since being here in the fancy pacific northwest and i only been here a couple months!

I read "The Grapes of Wrath" way back in high school - but I'm wondering if this rant isn't somehow inspired by that tragic tale?

I just needed a break

I've been busy, to be sure
I've done some heavy soul-searching and made some necessary changes in my life
But here's what you really want to hear....
I found a bottle of laxative pills at Bartell's
They look like Vitamin E capsules
Specifically, they look like my roommate's vitamin E capsules
She is going to...

fallfromgrace:
your pun was funny, but then I started thinking about it, and I was all like, "wait, doesn't he know that those are used for woodworking?" and then I was like, "oh no, maybe I don't know leatherworking all that well" but I was totally like, "man, I'm pretty sure awls are used to work wood". Then I laughed because "work wood" could be a euphemism for masturbation.
rainwolfkin:
hmm, you, dapper?

i hope that you have had some success in the soul-searching department. it's an important thing to get around to doing every now and then.
