|Now I remember why I stopped reading...
||[Oct. 8th, 2001|11:49 pm]
Yesterday was spent in San Marcos, in the company of Wes, Raina, and Raina's sisters. They were crazy and nice. We ate at Bennigan's, where I had the Monte Cristo, a deep-fried sandwich. What was I thinking?? It was scrumptious, but the grease alone... We also stopped at Hastings, a book/CD/video superstore, where I purchased American Psycho on DVD, and Ender's Shadow in book form. It's been a long while (6 months or so?) since I stopped to read a book recreationally, and it's easy to see why. It's consuming my life. Luckily, at the rate I'm going, I'll be done reading it tonight, tomorrow at the latest.|
In other news, Kareem, Hek-tor and I met at Mojo's tonight to brainstorm for Immortal Human Skin Cells. We discussed a lot of stuff, and did some solid planning for the Schmalia sketch. So Wes, I'd like to share the ideas we came up with you. If all goes well, we'll focus this week's recording effort on that.
we go to bennigans after games a lot
you should come sometime
I think I'm going to have to cultivate a love for salads.

books are the devil
i'm the same way about reading. i neglect all else in the need to finish novels. homework goes undone, tests unstudied for.. just because i didn't have the sense to start the novel at a later date. because i know i can't ignore.
been this was since i started reading full-length novels at age 10.
my mom had these tapes to help you sleep at night that had subliminal messages. one of them was a stop smoking tape, one was a weight loss, and one was a speed reading tape.
guess which one i got.
it's a curse!

Re: books are the devil
Same here. I started reading fantasy novels (Golem in Gears, by Piers Anthony, to be exact) on a long trip to the World's Fair as a kid. And I never looked back. Ex-girlfriends can attest to the fact that I can't put a book down.
That Bennigan's Monte Cristo is the Best. Sandwich. Ever.
It's the only thing I ever get when I go to Bennigans. The best part about eating it is you can feel yourself getting fatter.
Please tell me you didn't finish the whole thing, did you? I've NEVER been able to finish an entire Monte Cristo...but they still taste good the next day!

Re: Dear God...
I finished 3 of the 4 pieces, and bequethed the last to Wes's to go box. I still crave it, but I think I've had my last bite of the sweet Monte Cristo.
Shudder...she's a beast, arrr...only an eating machine could finish her...
You know, Misty is so much a book addict. I was reading the Houston Press as she drove us to faire last weekend and she almost rammed the back of a car because she wanted so much to read the paper. I stared at her and told her she needed help if her desire to try to read was that strong. Her only response was, "I'm a reader!"
