Here’s a weird site: one devoted to the question “do Asians really all look the
same?”
I took the test and scored 7 out of 18, one better than
statistics say a chimp should be able to do by sheer guessing. What
was odd that while taking it I was sure I was doing much better than
that.

My ABE stuff is turned on. You can now go directly to my
“bookstore” page
. You can even search on my inventory, which at
this moment is a whopping two books. I wanted to make sure it was all
working before I went nuts typing stuff in. Over the weekend I should
put more in. I’m going to try to shoot for a consistent 10-20 books a
day, maybe more on the weekends. I’ll divide it up between the newish
stuff that I really just want gone and the older books that I’m more
interested in. This is mostly paperbacks in good shape from the 50’s
through the 70’s. I’ve been slowly accumulating them at garage sales
and estate sales and library sales for a decade so it is nice to
finally have a venue in which to sell them. The single best find was
finding about 50 great paperbacks on a shelf in the basement of the
LSU library with a sign that said plaintively “Please take me!” I
did. I considered briefly leaving some for some other lucky bastard
but then I figured it was more likely that someone would get tired of
them and pitch them, so I viewed it less like being greedy and more
like a rescue. These are the rationalizations that get us through the days.

Valentine’s day. I already have one, so it’s a pretty pleasant day for
me. Back in the first 20 odd years of my life, it was consistently a
day that left me depressed and lonely. Thankfully those days are gone.

Watching ER is especially tough lately. I don’t particularly like the
show much lately and the subject matter frequently hits too close to
home.

I’m done making the copies of the first disc of the Zevon. I have to
edit the silence out of the tracks and then burn disc two. Maybe if I
bust it I can send them out this weekend.
