Better haul his crybaby butt back to Columbia for the holidays. That boy is lucky he already has two children because of Stewart gets ahold of him he won't be able to reproduce again. That's all I have to say about that.

Sad because Mark Martin didn't win the championship. Sick of cheaters winning but we all know what is going on. Such is life. Yes, I am crying because my boy didn't win, either.

National Book Awards

Were announced last night. I have only read one of the top five (In Other Rooms) which was assigned reading but was also very good.

Library Bookdrops

Items found in library bookdrops, not necessarily where I work (although I have seen some here) - compiled from a listserv:
cheese slice as a bookmark
used condoms
condoms still in package
pot leaves drying in books
cash inside books
cotton balls
live duck
live cat
dirty diapers
vomit in a bag
soft tacos
spray paint can
bottle of vodka, half full
dead bird
pizza, in box
melted ice cream cone
live mouse
used tampons and pads
fried chicken
baby bottles
cans of beer
Our bookdrop was recently the victim of a vehicular incident. I think the picture pretty much speaks for itself. Patrons are not happy that they have to actually park and walk up to the building to put their materials in the drop attached to the building, or bring them in to the desk. Life is hard, I know.

Parental Figures Birthdays

My brother and I refer to our parents as "The Parental Figures." It may seem impersonal but it isn't meant to be so. I'm not sure how it came to pass that we called them this; we aren't allowed to call them by their first names - they are Mom and Dad - so maybe that was our way of having some freedom in how we address them. Although we don't call them that to their faces, so maybe I have no idea what I'm talking about. The pair of them turn 64 this week, so we hung out at their house yesterday to scream at the race - don't get me started - and I bought vats of unhealthy food for us to eat. Yes, I spend considerable time on the treadmill when I came home last night.

Anyone else doing the Nanowrimo thing this month? I did it the last two years, won it last year, and had a blast. I'll sleep when I'm dead.

Halloween Girl

Yes, Eileen, this is for you.
