Am soooo tired at this point. I ended up staying up late last night to finish eBay listings and listen to a friend on the phone, and I ended up having a teensy bit of trouble going to sleep.

Had another long phone call tonight and am just now about to go to bed. I sorted a whole bunch of merchandise while on the phone and I'll have to double-check my work tomorrow because I was a bit scattered.

Funniest thing today was when I stopped by the bookstore to see my old boss/good friend. A customer came up and asked, "Do you have a book, it's a part of a series, there are four books in the series, and they're numbered 1, 2, 3, and 4."

I can't make this stuff up, people.

I have more bubble wrap now, and good friend's SO should be coming over at some point to fix our bastard garage door. Not the big lifty electric thing, just the side door that was installed after the house was built. By someone who probably just took a saw and cut out a door-sized opening and stuck a door in it. Yeah. It doesn't fit. So I'm really looking forward to getting rid of the constant draft and the big gap at the top of the door, and the rotting door bits.

I've started up the other side of the roller coaster; I feel good about the fic again. Bright and bubbly. One of my fave parts went up today. Also, I scribbled notes at work today for the revised scene, and it should come together nicely. And for some reason I've just gone and ordered a Nancy Drew book from Amazon, most likely because I have this cracky fic idea.

I have no idea why I chose this icon, except that perhaps I secretly feel like a Fantasm Soldier today. Whatever that means.

Bed now, before I ramble even more strangely.

hahah! Yeah, they aren't related, except for the bookstore being the place where I get all my bubble wrap. Love getting it, too, because they throw it out, so I feel like it's a rescue mission. lol.

LMFAO.

An acquaintance used to work at a film store, and he used to have people coming in saying "Do you have that movie, with that guy, you know the one, he was in that other thing?". He used to deadpan "Yeah, it's right over there," without moving his head or otherwise motioning to which direction he meant. =D

I've also heard stories of people working at bookstores having customers ask for "that book that was advertised on TV", and all they know about it is that the cover was blue or something.

People. >.< Oi.

omg, that is awesome! Yeah, movies are terrible, too. Anything where people have to remember names and titles...ugh!

Sometimes authors would go on talk shows and mention their OUT OF PRINT books from TEN YEARS AGO, and then there would be this huge swell of customers asking for the book, and by the time the publisher frantically printed copies and sent them out, nobody cared any longer. lol. I wonder if POD publishing has changed that whole vibe.

And yeah, people used to come in and ask for a book with "love" in the title. With a blue cover. ugh.

Heh, that's a good way to describe it.
BTW, I am going to that medieval thing again in mid May. Wanna get together?
