Mmm, books...

Apparently an icon of a cute French girl is somewhat jarring, so I'm going back to androgynous half-demon guy with silver hair and gun, and a propensity for being impaled through the heart with various swords.

So I went shopping at Old Navy yesterday to get some workout clothes, and as usual picked up a bunch of other clothes too. Looking at my purchases today, I realize that I still shop as if I'm a teenager in Singapore. Doh!

I also got a cute little beach mat, which I'll use for sprawling in the park near my house while I write, so I don't have to sit on the park bench next to all the crazies and/or old people who randomly burst into song or read their papers out loud.

I passed a temporary book store that was selling tons of books at a big discount, and I browsed the paperbacks and picked up a few books. I haven't been to a bookstore in ages, even though they were like my favourite place in the world when I was a kid. There's just something really magical about being surrounded by all these stories and fake lives that you can peek into, I guess.

I started reading Who I was Supposed to Be by Susan Perabo, and I love the first few stories. I also picked up Dream Boy by Jim Grimsley, In a Father's Place by Christopher Tilghman and The Restraint of Beasts by Magnus Mills.

The reason why I woke up at 8 AM today became much less mysterious when I noticed that there had been a jackhammer going outside my window for the past couple of hours.

ahhhh I love book sso much :) yay for book shopping.

I'm also quite fond of Old Navy. *g*

Books are almost always cool, unlike movies. :P

You are? Maybe you're wearing my pants too! (Like Flan)

hah so true.

I like the stupid ass men's shirts myself hehe

I was okay with the cute French girl icon!

The demon guy jarred me about as much and for about as long, until I went "oh, that's just Mae". :)

ohh reading outside. I love summer.

*snicker* I think the cute little French girl icon was a little jarring only because it looks casual enough to be someone's personal photo... and I'd initially thought it was before I read the username and realised 'wait a minute... Mae doesn't look like that. *g*'

Ah... bookstores. Lovely. Evil when you can't afford them, but lovely. =)


Ahh, I can see that. That's why I liked that picture, though--it wasn't all glammed up like her other ones. :)

I miss the pretty French girl already ;)

Nuh uh.

I just couldn't figure out who the girl was. Whoever thought it looked like a personal photo was very correct... I kept thinking "Wait, THAT'S not Mae!"

I want to find my dman beach mat. I want to use it to sit in the sun and read in the backyard.


LOL, you aren't allowed to change, apparently.

*giggle* The cute French girl scared you?

Well, it scares me b/c it isn't you.

What is a "temporary book store"? Can you like...rent books there? Or is it only a bookstore for a little while?

Yeah, it's one of those empty stores that's leased for like a month and sells a whole bunch of whatever it is they sell--books, Halloween stuff, etc.

Who is that dude, anyway? He looks kinda like David Aebischer.

It's Dante from Devil May Cry for PS2. :)

Re: Totally random.

DMC3 is coming out soon. WHEEEEEEEEE!
