Power's still out, so I spent the afternoon at Barnes and Nobel… - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
Power's still out, so I spent the afternoon at Barnes and Nobel reading Pamie's new book, Why Girls Are Weird. Very entertaining read so far!

Now I'm at Mum's house again. C is here also, and is switching between Apocalypse Now and The Wizard of Oz on the television. Very very surreal combination. Talk about your contrast! We just went from the Valkyries/helicopters scene, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning," to Dorothy and her gang knocking on the door to the wizard's castle, "Ah-ha-ha Oh-ho-ho, and a couple of tra-la-la's, that's how we work the day away, in the merry old land of Oz!"

Um, yeah. Kinda disconcerting.

Totally unrelated (though fun, nonetheless) I've spent much of this evening watching Animal Cops on Animal Planet.. and it's based around the Michigan Humane Society - based in... Detroit! Woohoo!

I now return you to regular programming.

I know I don't know you but I just wanted to say that Animal Planet is the best!! :)

Particularly Animal Cops and Animal Precinct. :)

Actually.. I think I'll have withdrawal from that and Animal Precinct when I leave.... I'm also becoming strangely attached to a few of the crazy game shows.... save me now!

heehee...my sister is really into those shows too! I haven't seen much of them, probably best, since I don't want to get addicted....

I was watching Apocalypse Now, The Wizard of Oz, and American Graffiti plus reading The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde and trying to remember Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte because Fforde's book has the plot of Jane Eyre changing based on the actions of his heroine, Thursday Next (fortunately, at the end of the book, the book has been restored to what we know today). The good thing is now I am about six weeks ahead in the reading group selections.

Pamie's Why Girls are Weird

Wow, this is totally random! I was mad from having lost my journal in the cyberspace jsut five minutes ago(which i spent a long paragraph talking about Pamie's book) and started randomly reading people's journal and saw yours! heh i have no idea this book is so popular right now...it wasn't even on display at my campus bookstore. Anyway...I loved it and it was funny and worthy of my 12 bucks!:)

Re: Pamie's Why Girls are Weird

Cool, that is pretty surreal. I picked it up because I read about it in her journal. I've been reading her journal for awhile, and she
has always been entertaining, so I figured I'd try out the book. I liked it a lot...I finished it in only 2 days! Definitely glad I bought it.

Glad to hear you liked it too!!

Re: Pamie's Why Girls are Weird

It's good to see her getting so much exposure and stuff! Means there's hope for closet writers everywhere.

Kurt sure sounds like a neat guy, yes!!

thanks for the good laugh... indeed agent orange and the yellow brick road are to interesting oposites...
but I suppose in their own way each film is a historical gem, a classic film if you will, and each when on TV demand to be watched... thus C was merely fulfilling the intended roll of watching each film... (albiet toether in an odd juxtaposition)
your bit about nalmpam and tra-la-laaing made me laugh...
I hope your doing better on this aniversery (odd to say that I recall last year anerverary when you shared the story with us...)
thanks for keeping LJ real and full of meaningful things... not just the trivialites that each of our lives are full of...
