I had a loverly weekend at Polaris! Oh my werd, but it was fantastic! I would definitely recommend it to any sci-fi/fantasy fan. They had something for everyone. You will be hearing more about the weekend from me later, but for now it's time for....
But first, an open letter:
I understand that you wish to smell nice. I understand that you may have spent a bit of money on that fragrance. Or perhaps it is a gift from someone special.
However, the rest of us did not have a say in that fragrance. We did not buy it or receive it as a gift. Perhaps we do not particularly care for that fragrance.
If our eyes water when we come within twenty feet of you, because of the strength of the fragrance, you may have applied it with a bit too liberal a hand. When our breathing is constricted and we must keep from inhaling when you are around, you may be wearing just a tad too much.
hehehe :) You can buy this shirt here
VAGUEST REQUEST AWARD:
A woman approached me to ask for a book.
"It's like witch-y but romance-y. It's fiction. It has this big yellow/creamy cover. It has like more than one story in it. It was really thick. A few months ago I saw it on display over there (gestures in a broad circle to half the store) where there was the thing like this (makes a vague motion with her hands). So what section would that book be in?"
Just follow the arrows, lady. Everything will be clear ...
OUTRIGHT BIZARRE AWARD:
A teenage girl came up to me and asked where the books on spiders would be. I showed her to the section and found a book for her. She flipped through it, shuddering. "Spiders are ugly!" she exclaimed.
I asked if she needed anything else.
"No," she said. "I guess I'll just go with Black Widow." She shoved the book back on the shelf and dashed away.
ummm... go with Black Widow for WHAT?!

And that's all for today!
