I was walking past the produce back room at Walmart, there's a sink and they chop up vegetables, NBD. Then some object fell next to me...I don't even know what it was, it was like something made out of pieces of wood, why was that there?

The sound of it hitting the ground was so loud, I believe that is what it would sound like to have a bomb go off next to you. My whole body tensed up and I went blind. I had the sensation of a bright white light and pain shooting through my entire head. That was the worst thing I've ever felt. I think that is what dying feels like. I didn't jump or have an accelerated heart beat, I was just like my soul has left my body now.

On a lighter note, I got a septum piercing and you can't tell if there is a booger hanging out of your nose because it always feels like that. It's the worst.

For a book review someone actually wrote "This just sounds like Post Structuralism regurgitated by some Neo Marxist grad school journal."

First of all those two pretentious phrases might as well mean the same thing, at least in this context. And no normal people know or care what that means, they have better things to do then go to college for political science and philosophy.

My gripe is about the concept as criticism EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS THIS! thing. I get the cynical ironic detachment from endless repetition, but I just find it utterly wearisome. Why is that stimulating to essentially make fun of someone for knowing something that you know?

EXTREMELY ****ed off today when I went to Barnes and Noble. Mom took me on a shopping jaunt today since I still had some gift card money left and we've had a rough weekend dealing with the loss of one of our dogs. I was hoping to pick up Steven Erikson's Toll the Hounds along with Star Wars: Bloodline and Star Wars: Leia, Princess of Alderaan. I was not in the least happy to discover that the two copies of TTH that were on the Sci-Fi/Fantasy shelf looked like they had either been read and returned to the shelf or tossed around in a box without a care. I saw the same thing a few months ago when I wanted to buy TTH, Midnight Tides, and the BoneHunters - all the shelf copies looked so beat up - a TTH copy even had a huge TEAR in the front cover. I was so disgusted that I just bought other books instead. The copies of Bloodline and L,POA that I bought today had a little bit of wear, but I bought them anyway. Oddly, the copy of Clive Cussler's Havan Storm that I bought instead of TTH had no visible damage. Confused If B&N keeps letting books in beat up condition stay on the shelf, I may go entirely to Amazon for future book purchases.

Sorry to hear about your dog, Alan. I'm a dog lover. Sad
