A little late, but here’s a shot of our T-Day dinner!
This is… the worst Coloring Book ever. It’s Frida Kahlo. Even worse, in this book, every outlined picture to color shows Frida’s eyebrows SEPARATED. The woman had a celebrated unibrow, you jerk publishers!
So whenever I volunteer at OpenBooks (always the Sunday 12-3pm shift), I’d say 70% of the time, a table needs to be re-done for Displays. Being not-so-well-read (compared to most other bookstore workers/volunteers), I’ve always shied away from this task of filling in the blank spaces on the display tables with good/new/pretty-looking books, because I don’t know what’s “good”. So the one week I agreed to do that task, I basically re-ordered the books so all the blanks were on the backside of the table, and then I filled in MY choices to represent ME.
"Dad is Fat" - because Jim Gaffigan is an awesome comic and I love his material.
"The Phantom Tollbooth" - my Favorite Book growing up, and still is to this day. I can never answer any questions about my favorite song/band/artist/author/movie because it’s always changing, but The Phantom Tollbooth will probably always be my favorite book. I recommend it to anyone of any reading age and always will.
"Mostly Harmless" - this was just the best-looking used book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide series that I could find. I loved reading the entire series, including the Dirk Gently books afterwards.
"Dexter By Design" - my choice to represent Char, as we loved the Dexter series (except the finale) and she’s been reading the books.
"Bart Simpson’s Guide to Life" - I had this book growing up and felt pangs of nostalgia seeing it on the shelf as I looked for books and HAD to put it up there. Full of old school Simpsons jokes/trivia and humor.
"The Gunslinger" - I switched out the Stephen King book left on the table for this Stephen King book, because it was my dad’s favorite series and after he passed away, I made it my goal to read all 7 books. And I did. And he was right, it was a good series.

So Macaulay Culkin wrote a book. It’s called “junIor” and I flipped through it trying to figure out what category to list it under. It’s part autobiography. But it’s part fiction. And it’s part insane ramblings. So I put it under “Humor” because I think it’s frickin’ hilarious that Macaulay Culkin wrote a book. Good for him, though. Not like I’VE written a book…– Me, inventorying newly-donated books at OpenBooks
Me: Hey Lizzy, would you categorize the Hitler Youth book under Military History (WW2), or World History (Europe)?
Lizzy: Uhhhh... I guess Military History.
Me (to myself): I don't know which is worse, that they MADE a Hitler Youth book, the someone BOUGHT a Hitler Youth book, that someone DONATED a Hitler Youth book, or that we're going to RE-SELL a Hitler Youth book...
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo would like to give Special Thanks to a website that is non-existant, but up for sale.
Turns out, TLC had a misspelling of camoformal.com, which IS a real website. Full of really hideous outfits.
Outfits that my fiance won’t let me buy.
Even though I told her it wouldn’t be for our wedding, it’d be for everyday use.
Why is the ugly camouflage store one of the few I’ve encountered that will sell me a 5XL shirt?? DEAR GOD the print is called “PINK Snowfall True Timber” and it’s so shiny it would NEVER be used for real camouflage!
Damn you, Honey Boo Boo… TLC, what hast thou wrought upon the world???
So excited! (at The Vic)
Almost forgot to let y’all know! Last night I made a batch of Ben & Jerry’s “Vanilla Oreo” ice cream from their cookbook, using our ice cream maker. It’s DELICIOUS, you guys!!
Guinness: “Mickey, does this hammock make me look fat?”
Michelob: “EVERYTHING makes you look fat! Because you are SO VERY VERY FAT! Get all your chins outta my face!”
