I'm not convinced that typing "I will not suck dick in class" into a search engine is going to have the desired effect on behavior. Call me old fashioned, but I think teachers should make those sluts write it on the blackboard 100 times, then they'll think twice before they do it again.

Magpie and I are (finally) organizing our bookshelves. We're bemused and faintly embarrassed to realize we have enough books to make up an architecture/urban planning section.

Also, we have a bunch of books we've bought twice. Not books we each owned before we met, books we already owned that we bought duplicates of, because we didn't realize we already owned them.

This seems like a good excuse to mention that one of my favorite socialist folk musicians quit music for several years to write children's books.

I irrationally believe that Rosie's Singing Grandfather and Rosie's Grandfather Sings Again are an awesome pair of titles for children's books.

(Full disclosure, I remember my dad singing Rosselson's Little Tim McGuire when I was a kid, and it seems like a perfect "not suitable for children" kid's song. So I will always believe that Leon Rosselson knows something about communicating with kids).

I've got some multiple copies of books, but usually for a reason: the copy I had was on the other side of the country and I wouldn't be able to get to it for months, or there was a cheap and relatively light paperback of a hardcover I didn't want to carry around as I read it. I've got some books in both categories right now.

I never really thought of Middlesex as significantly less swanky. Obviously Groton and St. Paul's are swankier than the others, but St. Mark's dropped a while ago, and I didn't know that St. George's was super-highly rated. We didn't like playing St. George's when I was in high school, because it was so much farther away. A Wednesday game was a real pain.

My books are in clusters of strong correlation (sheet music; music textbooks; computer books and manuals; hardback fiction, softback fiction), laced with shelves of loosely related matter (pop culture, books about bands or lyrics, non-textbook things about architecture, freakonomics). The best thing to be said for the way my books are arranged is that it maximizes use of the structural shelves and deep cases for rows upon rows of large books (piano scores and architecture textbooks share a form factor).

What I need is at least six more feet of bookcases at current height and depth, but my apartment is inadequate for that.

I have duplicates of several things, a condition I will now name remainderitis. I am almost incapable of leaving a bookstore without visiting the remaindered books, so I'll spot a deal on something I've been meaning to read, grab it, and discover at home that I'd spotted the same sort of deal before. And hadn't read it (because I'd *remember* that). The condition requires remainder tables, as they lead to the sort of half-dozen-at-once purchase that results in none of the books ever getting read.

Between us, the GF and I do own three intentionally-purchased copies of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," because I had the hardback and bought the trade paperback to get the extra material.

And I inadvertently have two copies of two different McSweeney's editions.

I should read more and buy less.

I ostensibly bought it for my husband, but...

For some reason we don't really get remaindered books around here. Some of them go to used bookstores, but then they get marked at half-price or even more, so it's just not the same as going to a bookstore in another city and seeing a remainder table with deep, deep discounts. On the whole, this is probably a good thing, since my experience with those tables mirrors fedward. Even at the used bookstore, I frequently have to talk myself down from buying second copies of books that I KNOW I have, because they were such good choices in the first place, and why wouldn't you want to reaffirm that and do what was successful in the past?

Have we listed our book sections before? Mine are: Anarchism, Sociology and other Left books, Dictionaries and Atlases, Ecological Architecture, Film Studies, Music Studies, Race & Resistance, Russian Dictionaries, Russian Literature, Outdoor Survival, Children's Books, English Literature, Intoxicants, [Certain Collectibles Related to Intoxicants], Fashion, Mysteries and Noir, Paperback SF and Graphic Novels.

However, I am a little behind on my shelving, so whenever I give it another go-round, other sections may suggest themselves.

Apropos of nothing, we have two nice gentlemen from 1-800-GOT-JUNK emptying our garage of, well, junk, and one of them looks exactly like bearded-Armsmasher.

Junksmasher!

Also, free public service to the internet: do not use 1-800-GOT-JUNK, as the guy (not Junksmasher) will quote you one price, start working, and then say he didn't realize how much stuff you had, and halfway through tell you it's going to be $100 more.

mrh, I am shocked! simply shocked that they would do such a thing!

You've never used movers before, have you?

Every single mover tries to do the same thing.


I am shocked that you can discover the searches that brought people here.

I vote that Ogged posts the search question with the commenter. What question did w-lfs-n ask?

Not my movers, whom I love! Rhode Islanders, I hereby endorse Consumers' Movers, who have never tried to screw me in 3 different moves.

that just means that they charged you too much to begin with.

Just accept it. The movers will screw you. Just like car dealers.

Why is it that at all other blogs we post sitting up, but on this blog we post in a reclining position?

I had always taken it as self-evident that an image of apo's wang was the first data record in w-lfs-n's cock database.

3, 5: I'd actually feel kind of terrible if the hypothetical browsing person stumbled on this thread and actually thought s/he was bad or that his/her boyfriend wasn't into them because they couldn't come during sex. So here, Imaginary Person! A link about anorgasmia. In can be caused by psychological problems like stress, performance anxiety, etc., but it can also be the side effect of a drug. A lot of SSRIs and other anti-depressants can cause anorgasmia; so can alcohol. Talk it over with your partner and see what can help.

This has been another edition of Eugene Debs's Earnest Sex Advice.

Also, if the girl just isn't hot anymore. Suggest lipsuction and vaginal rejuvenation surgery.

Yes, if your partner has to get shitfaced drunk before they are willing to go to bed with you they might not be able to come.

(who has a master's in Library and Information Science)

Hipster.

Also, I can't find any evidence of my all-time favorite kids' book. I swear it was called "A Walk in the Jungle", but it was not the crime novel by Glenn Canary, nor the "Animal Explorers" book by Dorothea DePrisco. It had great colorful illustrations and I think it was about some sort of short bird with a huge beak going through the jungle.

114: Pfft. I'm too old to be a hipster.

94: I'm afraid I'd be the wrong person to talk your girlfriend out of telling you to give away books, because I'm a big believer in weeding. Genre fiction in particular passes through quickly. Right now I've got a stack that's about to go into BookMooch, a stack that's about to go out of BookMooch and to my mom for the Mayberry Library Book Sale (because they haven't moved in months) and the pile of stuff that's outdated and destined for the El Suburb recycling center's book shelf (and from there into Jackmormon's parents' house, most likely).

We do come through DC from time to time, though, and will drop you an e-mail beforehand.

Re. the Giving Tree, PK loved that book, and I told him I hated it. He asked why. I explained. He thought about it for a few days, then came to me and agreed that I was right.

Well, anyway, my point was that Republicans are generally not feminists. with the possible exception of those who are Republicans because the only thing they care about is tax cuts. that is to say, glibertarians.
