i put it on my upper lip, right under my nose. and on my chin, so i breathe it in even when i lapse into mouth-breathing mode. but i’m pretty sure it specifies topical use only? because it’s at least a little bit toxic? are… are you mom and meemaw alright?
All my thriftbooks.com purchases have arrived. I now have a library copy along with all my other copies (hardcover, two paperback and one Italian) of The Book of Speculation. I have decided that shall be my loaner copy that I let my friends (well the ones I haven’t already bought copies for) borrow. Makes sense. Plus I ordered Get In Trouble, by Kelly Link on the recommendation of both @ladyofthehouse and @wehavesuchfun and I love short stories so I’m psyched to dig in. That’s also a library copy and in excellent condition. Then I picked up two used paperback copies of my favorite and Mr. Interrupted’s favorite books (If On A Winter’s Night A Traveler by Italo Calvino and Hunger by Knut Hamsun) which were strangely missing from our library. This stack cost less than $15 shipped. The books are pretty perfect except for a crease in the cover of Hunger. This was a great little package to get this week.
Movie night was so much fun. I’m thrilled that @ladyofthehouse and @wehavesuchfun could come and for the very important contribution of @wehavesuchfun’s projector without which we would have been huddled on the lawn around my laptop. I can’t wait to do it all again.
Surf Ninjas; Renaissance Man; Major Payne; Pale Rider; Karate Kid I, II and III; What Dreams May Come; The Last Airbender cartoon series. (If you only put one of these suggestions on there, it should be the Airbender cartoons.)
Dude. Major Payne? MAJOR PAYNE!?! I love you. - “Killing is my business and business is good!”
Goonies — “Down here is -our- time.”, The Truth About Cats and Dogs — “You can love your pets, just don’t -love- your pets.”, Sense and Sensibility, Muppets Take Manhattan — “Rats is peoples, frogs is peoples, peoples is peoples.”
In celebration, the Familia Cranquis is going out of town for the weekend!
(Actually, to a friend’s wedding somewhere in the US).
(No, not a wedding in Florida, which would be just too weird of a coincidence with TLOTH’s wedding-based Florida trip this weekend.)
I regret to inform you all that the queue, she is empty. So, there will be a paucity of posts this weekend. BUT, I will use this trip as an opportunity to get the ball rolling on that promised treasure hunt. (AHEM, Pranquistadors, have your deciphering fingers ready!)
I didn’t know that there was anything on the back of my dalek dress until I put it on this morning. now I love it even more. (it says exterminate, in case you can’t read wrinkly mirrored writing) someone asked me if I was a ladybug, but I did have my hoodie over most of it so you can’t really blame him. he also told me he loves me but that’s just because I gave him money. still, nice to hear.
also, TLOTH sent me this incredible piece of jewelry, which there is probably a name for, and I love it so much. I want to wear it always. ♥ xoxoxoxo
