  • My eyes get twitchy when I'm staring at the computer for too long. Lack of sleep also does it for me as well. Today is not going to be a fun day.

    • Twitching is getting further and further apart as the day goes. I meant to grab my glasses during lunch, but did good to get any food with as much as I was doing.

      I *almost* messed up and got a PB Snickers & a DP for lunch, but they didn't have either, so I was saved from myself!
      Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

      If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

      • I just demolished a $30 book and am now scanning it in so I can read it on my nook. Weee!

          That...
          That...
          That poor book...
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

            ^This. Wouldn't it have been easier and less bibliocidal just to buy it for the nook?

              I like the smell of books. *le sigh*

              • It's not available on the nook, or I would have. I still have all the pages, neatly in an envelope. I will eventually pay to have it spiral-bound.

                  Slightly less egregious, but it's still a hurt book.

                  Not that I'm one to talk, I have several books that met liquid and are now twice their original size, are battered almost to the point of nonrecognition, or that have a permanent residence in my trunk (appointment books), but I've never killed one.
                  Oh wait, there was that one that I ripped every page out of and gleefully burned, but that doesn't even deserve the title "book."

                  • I think my book collection is about to go through a purge, anyway. I hate to say it, but I need more space and can probably get most of them on my nook.

                      Not that I have the bookshelf space for it, but I'd be more than happy to sift through the wreckage to add to my collection.

                      • Of course.

                          Was it Eragon?

                          • Never read that one. It was "Cry the Beloved Country," by one Alan Paton. f I ever meet him, I'd like it to be in in a dark alley with plenty of weaponry lying about.

                              Never read it. It is absolute crap. I've never read Paton and based on your review will not ever read him.

                              • Re-scanning the book in color. The B&W pictures come out much better on my nook when they were scanned in color than they do when they're scanned in crappy B&W by the copy machine.

                                It takes longer to scan in color, though.
