True story about snow

Everytime I feel compelled to spend a lot of money, I go instead to the public library and load up. As much as I can hold! For free! Best Game Show, ever. Also, since a robot scans the barcodes, I check out without fearing librarian judgement. Twilight on CD, baby! A lotta blah blah blah about sparkly vampire’s alabaster skin and topaz eyes–girl’s into rocks I guess.

Additionally, books about bears, vanilla, the albatross, bridges and tunnels, a handbook of different types of survival kits, fiction book about accidentally identical unrelated girls at a victorian boarding school.

Which mispronunciations earn  your disdain?  Nuclear? Library? Larvae? I thought it was “for all intensive purposes” until recently.

Song for today – Sunlight – Harlem Shakes.


It’s the Girl Scouts cookie-peddlin’ season again. The only one I binge on (Thin Mints) is illustrated unappetizingly with a gaggle of open-mouthed girls with helmets (upside-down white bowls?) atop their heads. I can’t decide if they are exhilarated from recent rock climbing, or if their exuberance is in anticipation. Either way, they don the awkward nylon crotch-guard – safety harness for mid-air suspension. Four cookies (Thin Mints, obviously, but they are labeled in funky font anyway) are placed somewhat menacingly beneath the girls, so perhaps those wide grins can be reinterpreted as grimaces of terror. The Thin Mints are coming!!

Bought ’em yesterday. I pretended to be a twitching addict, paranoid side-looks, trembling hands passed over eight dollars, then effusively thankful. My unwitting dealer stood beside her mom, and I tried to reconstruct the father from their small unlikenesses.
