Life is dull.  
I can't talk coherently, it turns out. I called Lisa at work yesterday and she thought I was a crank call. No one in my family has a clue what I'm saying most of the time - in fact, Seanie's the only person who can tell what words I am distorting. All in all, it's quite pathetic.

Since I am going to be trapped in this house for at least two more days (Mom won't let me out until Tuesday at the earliest) and I still have to go through with that mouth surgery, I am going to be spending a lot of idle time doing nothing. Does anyone have some book recommendations? Rel, I know you always have about a million.
Pop 'em out folks, I'm BORED.
If you don't, I might have to WRITE. NEED I THREATEN YOU WITH WRITING?
Current Mood: crankycranky

Well, I highly enjoyed the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. They're 5 books, but the author insists on calling it a trilogy.
They're very well written and witty.
Also, the movie loosely covering the first book is now out, which is a lot better than I thought it would be.

...you had to expect that, you know.
Seriously. YOu had to see that coming. You asked the internet what books you should read? Of course the internet is going to say Hithikers. Silly internet. Having a movie just come out can't have helped.
I'll look through my shelf when I get home from work today and see if I've got anything you'd like. I'll bring them by in the morning (monday,) and you can finish them in about an hour. (Curse you and that speedy-reading thing you do.)

Now i'm flooded with customers.

Re: ...you had to expect that, you know.
I tried, I really did, but there was no price to be had on the cover! I shall never know how much it costs!
It's also much smaller then we previously imagined, what we saw was a pack of SIX of those things.
I'll ask the boss about it tommarow.

As for now, i'm afraid I may have to call you, as you are upstaris reading a book, but you alraedy know that.

I loved Phantom Tollbooth. :) I haven't read it in years, but it always cracked me up. Man, I am suddenly missing it very much.

I've only read some of the Narnia books; I really ought to read them all.
