Whole lotta labia.
So what happens is this. My father and I have lunch today. He mentions that he's enjoying his new book. I mention that I'm waiting for tonight so I can go pick up the new book about that kid with the glasses. He said "You aren't just going to wait for a library copy?"

I said "Of course not. I'm going to want to keep it."

"But, the place is going to be crawling with kids, and you'll have to wait up until midnight. And if you wait it'll go on sale."

And here's the thing. I'm a grown-up. Fight it though I may. I pay my bills, I keep my nose clean, I (mostly) get my oil changed on time. That means I can go drop my hard-earned money on a book that I know will make me happy if that's what I choose to do. That's the wonder of being a grown-up. Except now I'm torn. I turn to you.

Poll #533400 the thrill of a friday night

So.. what shall we do tonight boys and girls

OMG go get the book you silly bint.
Melly, it's been a hellof a week. Just go to bed.
Are you joking? That's forty minutes away. What.. are you gonna dress up too? Dork.
Melly. Why don't you go watch the deleted scenes from Finding Neverland and get it in the morning like the civilized world.
You know that joy of curling up with a really good book and just burying yourself in it? Yeah. Go get the book.

Hope you don't mind me chiming in -- I was friendsfriendsing and saw the poll, and see, the great thing about being an adult is you can choose to go to the bookstore at midnight and get the new Harry Potter if that's what you want to do. Adulthood has enough things that are difficult or scary or that you have to do or you can't do -- if you want to do this thing, and it'll be fun and you'll enjoy it, I say go for it.

Think about your father's taste in books. Now, give his advice on this subject the weight it deserves.

At this point it's not even that. At this point it's thinking about whether or not I want to drive to Frederick at midnight to go get it.

Are we going fabric shopping tomorrow? Such that we might be going to the JoAnns in Columbia?

Depends on when we get started? I wouldn't mind doing that (although I don't want to drive - still having stomach cramps) if we get started at a reasonable hour. I just don't want to get to 3 pm and haven't done anything but the fabric store.

My L just took the muchkin and they are going to the Virgin party to get the book. L has officially retained the title "GREATEST FRIGGING AUNT ON THE PLANET"

I am so behind, I've read the first two, but I still have to read the rest.

You missed my choice: "Stay home and watch the season premiere of Stargate and play with your computers"

Friday night in geekville.
