Punk library

Stickied Introduction:

In order to prepare for a two week trip with my lovely wife to Rome it is necessary for me to write 20 blog posts ahead of time. I don't have a lot of time to do this. I'm not sure I actually have any time to do this. But I have made a sacred charter, somewhere, I think, that says I must post a new blog post everyday. So I wanted to put a stickied explanation of the desperation of my plight at the top of each of my next twenty blog posts.

I am hoping this will explain why my comments might be (checked (X) as appropriate):

xx Brief

__ Incoherent

__ First drafts

__ Silly

__ Unfinished

__ Borderline plagiarized from someone else

__ Borderline plagiarized from myself

__ Petty about the Internet

__ Pandering to the reader

__ Technically illegal in the country of Turkey

__ Ending abruptly

xx Too frank by half

__ Pretty much just the lyrics of some song I like

xx Actually a lot like any of my regular blog posts

This particular post is:

14? of 20

End of Stickied Introduction

Hi, welcome to the library. You'd like a nice Jodi Picoult book? James Patterson? Nicholas fucking Sparks? Sorry, no.

We've been pandering for far too long around here. Do you know how many stupid books by these stupid authors we buy? I don't know. Do I look like the statistical compendium of library bullshit?

The libraries have all gone soft. You want a book to read, a CD? You want a movie? Come to the front desk and I will give you one. It will be good for a change. I'm a professional.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
