"Sir, can you at least tell me part of the title or maybe the author…?"
"No, but my neighbor had it checked out last month, it was a book with a green cover… or maybe it was brown?"
"But you can’t tell me anything about the book itself?"
"What, you mean you can’t figure it out from that? They checked it out from your library!"
"…sir, we pull from all 17 county libraries. It could have come from any of us."
"Oh."
"Yeah."
"Really?"
"Yeah."
"…so, you can’t figure it out for me, then?"
"No, sir, I’m sorry. Not unless you can give me some more information."
"Oh."
"You could try talking with Reference."
"What… that desk, over there?"
"Yes, sir. They might be able to help you if you can remember something, even if it’s just part of the plot— "
"Naw, that’s ok."
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah. Thanks anyways. I’ll just ask you again tomorrow."
"…have a good day, sir."

Looks like we’re finally back to up and running status!

Wondering if anyone would be interested in reading something along these lines…

It’s not summer unless there is a massive thunderstorm every single afternoon.

Although, I’m a little surprised… it usually doesn’t break until late afternoon.

Still, it’s always wonderful to sit through a storm and listen to the thunder roll across the thick, grey clouds.

The biggest problem I have with “extreme” couponers is when they have rooms and garages of stockpiles. I mean, if you’re going to buy so much bulk and keep buying on a regular basis, then what is the point? It’s just going to waste. You are a horder that has saved money on creating your horde.

On the flip side, I love seeing folks that buy all this stuff in bulk and then donates it to people who are in need.

A college dude with no sisters does not need 80 things of tampons, but there are women’s shelters that need free things like that.

Come on, TLC, if you’re going to make “The Learning Chanel” be “learning” about “alternative lifestyles”, then use your sideshows to promote ways people can help others. Run a 30 second PSA about what shelters need… something!

"Extreme Coupon(-ing)" is on right now.

hte-anon:

What if someone has been gone for so long because they’re dead

it hasn’t even been three days yet

but what if

I gave a good friend a bad scare a couple of years ago in a similar situation and, ever since then, every time I go in for surgery, I make my mom swear that, should anything happen, that if I was to die unexpectedly or from complications, she’d log in and let my friends know. 

Don’t worry; I know that fear.
If I died, no one would be left hanging.

Not the most fun way to spend a weekend.

TL;DR version: everything’s fine - don’t worry
I’ll be catching up with everyone shortly.

Maybe I’m trying too hard to aim for a stylized look when I don’t even have a style pinned down?

There has to be a balance between cartoony and realistic that I just haven’t found yet.
