#362 – Fired Teenager

with 10 comments

Welcome to June, everybody!

Quiznos should be really thankful that I did not rob them. Or eat their entire stash of side pickles. One of those options. Regardless, I had run of the store for a whole ten minutes and all I did was sway and listen to a string of profanities being sung outside about how the world sucks and managers are all just a bunch of Satanists. Ah, to be young again!

Question of the day: Have you ever been fired from a job before?

Me? Nope. Never have had to go through that process. Hope I never will as it doesn’t seem fun…

In writing news, Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic, which contains my futurepunk horseracing tale of woe “The Sport of Kings,” received a nice (though succinct) writeup from the Midwest Book Review. It recommends the anthology for community library collections, which is great news indeed! Go, sporty book, go!

Life is but a memory, happened long ago
Theater full of sadness, for a long forgotten show
Seems so easy, just to let it go on by
Till you stop and wonder, why you never wondered why

#345 – Books Are Heavy

with 15 comments

Did you know? Really, did you?

I actually said it a second time, again to Pam. As if I had just discovered the most profound of discoveries of our time. That yes, as a whole, when packed into boxes, books are heavy. Seriously, people. I have my smart days and my…hmm, other days. I’d blame it on being wiped out from watching Penny all day, but really that’s like me blaming the houseplants for being too needy or something.

I do not look forward to ever packing up my books. According to my GoodReads profile, I have over 350. Ugh. I wonder if they’ll be heavy. Don’t answer that.

Question of the day: What’s the last book you bought?

Mine would be Infinite Dreams by Joe Haldeman, which I’ve yet to get to. Grrr…

When the wind died down
you found yourself out drifting
in a ship whose sails weren’t big enough
to carry you and all the extra weight
