    Interestingly enough, there was a program a few years back in some airport bookshops that allowed you to buy a book and bring it back on the return flight for I think half the cover price?

    Never occurred to me to just ask for a full refund. What a sucker I am!

    But anyway, the bookshop was encouraging this. I can easily plow through a 360-page paperback in a couple flights, and honestly -- I don't re-read books anymore, there is no reason for me to keep them. I'm wondering if this actually helped sales at all. I know it encouraged me to try an author I wasn't sure I'd like, because I figured at the very least I'd get some money back....

    I think the world would probably be a better place if The Gays took over. Or maybe just horrible in exciting new ways, but it couldn't get much worse, really.

    I have never returned a book in my life, except for once when I bought one for my sister as a present and then found out she already had it. But I even bought a cookbook once that was totally defective - one section was printed twice and another was completely missing - but I didn't return it even though I totally could have because I WORKED AT THE DAMN STORE EVEN - because it had been marked down 50% and I knew that at that rate, nobody was getting any money for it and if I returned it, it would just cost the store money for shipping it back and the publisher money for disposal, and really, I already had 2 other Two Fat Ladies cookbooks (awesome, btw - one of the few cookbooks I actually use) and there can't have been much in that missing section I really needed to know.

    That cracked me up. It would be horrible, but fabulously horrible.

    I worked with a gentleman at a hotel near Dallas's Gay Pride neighborhood (Oak Lawn.) This is a VERY hoity toity hotel, 6 stars on a scale of 5, yadyada. Said gentleman was generally fairly reserved, but made no bones about the fact that he was about as fairy gay as they came. He generally kept it quiet because of the clientele (no use sending Granny with pearls and a checkbook into a heart attack quite yet.)
    At one point, he happened to overhear a few of his coworkers (a maitre d' and a bellhop, if I remember right) bashing the gay community. This gentleman sidles up to them and just listens. As the maitre d' trails off, my coworker spoke up in the most stereotypical gay fairy voice you can imagine. "Oh, honey, we aren't so bad as all that. We're worse. We love EVERYONE." And he sashayed (I don't mean walked, he had his hips in on the action) away.
    I and the rest of the housekeepers were about to bust our collective guts.

    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!"
