Mood much improved

Hey all, just wanted ta let ya know I’m no longer in the black pit I inhabited the other day. My reasons for the uplift are thus:

1. Last night I talked to my very good friend Wendy The Minister.
2. Tonight I’m scheduled to talk to my other very good friend John The Law Student, who has to schedule all his phone convos because he has no time for anything.
3. Tomorrow morning I’m having breakfast with Wendy The Minister.
4. Tomorrow night I’m going to a comedy club with Michael My Boyfriend.
5. Today I spent like six hours in the library, feeling like a kid in a candy store, and checked out 18 books. (Though, whilst in the library, I read and returned two of those, and read another that I have not returned because I plan to lend it to some people.)

    You know, you have some life lessons, don’t you?? I’m sorry for your depression and trauma. The only “good” thing (lack of beter words) is you can enjoy the good times!
    Allow yourself the best time with the upcoming plans and share with us about how much fun you had!

      It was a pretty good night. I had three of these things called buttery nipples which are an alcoholic drink mix that tastes like peanut butter fudge. Most alcohol chokes me, but buttery nipples were very smooth and I almost liked them. The comedian was one of those kinds that heckles the audience a lot. One poor sap was the butt of about a hundred pedophile jokes during the act. It was very funny. Then after the show my boyfriend and I and his two friends hung out trashing my boyfriend’s roommate — one of my favorite things to do, seeing as how his roommate is a thoroughly nasty individual and pretty much the sole reason my boyfriend and I are not living together.

        Buttery nipples are good, but the ones I drank were butterscotch flavor not peanut butter.

    Girl you must be some kinda speed reader if you can read that many books in just six hours! Lucky you! Also lucky you that your library lets you take out so many books at a time! Mine sure doesn’t!

    • Meaghan May 15, 2010 / 5:28 am

      They were very short books.

      there is nothing wrong with reading….I’m willing to be Meaghan does not watch a lot or any tv which can eat away at your day

      • Princess Shantae May 16, 2010 / 5:49 pm

        Nobody said there was anything at all wrong with reading. We’re all maybe just a little bit jealous that Meaghan’s library lets her take out so many at a time and that she can find the time in her busy life to get so much reading done. I mean, she runs two web sites and has a social life and probably works too.

        No, I almost never watch television. I do occasionally watch movies, and whenever a new season of House comes out on DVD I watch that all in one go.

        Everyone makes time to do the things they love the most. I choose to give up a lot for my reading and it’s worth it for me. I actually find it hard to understand that many people dislike reading, but to each their own I guess. I bet they think I’m missing out on a lot too.

        Sorry if the “tone” of my message gave the impression about something wrong with reading. I just meant with the library letting someone get so many books. You’re right, most libraries don’t let anyone take out more than a few. My neighborhood library, as a matter of fact, says that if anyone has outstanding past due amounts, that person can not even use the computer or any library services. wow…..

      • Meaghan May 17, 2010 / 2:42 am

        My library lets you accumulate fines of up to $15 before they won’t let you check out books. I don’t know about computers.

        I didn’t think the tone of your message implied there was anything wrong with reading, btw.

    I’ve had a library card for every town I’ve lived in, and most of them had a borrowing limit of 5 books at a time. Meaghan is probably the only person I know who has read more than one complete book in one day (not counting comic books or children’s books) let alone in 6 hours.

    • forthelost May 15, 2010 / 7:23 pm

      I guess this is not the time to mention I usually read two books a day or so. More if I have lots of free time. Mostly they’re re-reads, though, because I own an obscene amount of books.

    • Meaghan May 16, 2010 / 8:07 pm

      I can’t imagine a borrowing limit of five books! At any given time I usually have at least ten checked out. As far as I know, the only limit my library has is holds: you can only have five things on hold at a time.

  5. Princess Shantae May 15, 2010 / 4:05 pm

    When I was little in the summertime I could read more than one book a day but like Bill says they were those real short kid books. Sometimes I would take a stack of library books under the big tree in back and just sit there with them all and see how many I could read before supper time or having to go inside. It helped that the library was right near the house so I could walk over there any time I wanted to, just about.

      In my childhood I enjoyed having a library within walking distance from my house. I was a quiet and shy boy, who often got picked on by bullies. The library was one of my sanctuaries where I always felt safe. You never see bullies hanging out at places like that. I also enjoyed having the freedom to choose what I wanted to read about, unlike at school.
