diner friends


So, I heard the most ignorant statement today at Driver's Ed. It's something that I hear people say all of the time, but it *still* surprises me.

"Why would I read the book if I can watch the movie?"

Oh, the masses never fail to irritate and amuse me. Or somewhere in between.

Not that I'm not a part of the masses, don't get me wrong. I'm not some fucking nonconformist standing of the the sidelines and saying "I'm better than you, I'm better than you, I'm better than you..." But I live by my own standards and set rules. If these happen to match up with society's... cool. If not... deal with it.

And in my world... reading is nifty. Bragging about not-reading is... well, it's just one reason for me to look at you and say "Please refrain from talking at me. Thanks." I even have one of those buttons that says 'I Still Read Books!'

I still read books. *shakes head* We are a sad, sad nation.

I just had some little treats called 'meringues'. I think... is how you spell it. XD Bunny! "What am I gonna do with all that mmmmmeeeeeringue?" Argh, that was the most annoying part of that play!

Remember the bat? Remember Zeus? Remember how the title became "Flower For Algernon" after they fucked up the programs?

*reminisces* "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." Charles Dickens, "A Tale of Two Cities". Heh... I'm literate! Really!
