Hooray for Nabokov, I have two copies of Lolita myself.
Yeah. My first copy was purchased to read it. The second copy was found at the university library’s free shelf - it’s the annotated version. The third copy was the 50th anniversary cover. The fourth was a used copy that I found at Hastings. I bought it because it’s a different cover.
Tag, you’re it! Here are the rules: Each tagged person must post ten things about themselves. You have to choose and tag ten people. Go to their blogs and tell them you tagged them.
I save this in case I got bored and felt like answering it. Guess it’s that time when I’m either really bored or really tired. However, I will not be tagging anyone because I like to end these things with me.
Anyway, ten facts about Ennui Prayer that no one really wanted to know but probably already do anyway:
I’m a book hunter. In the last two days, I purchased three books from my place of employment because they were good finds. Granted, only one was a find for myself.
I love zombies. They are, by far, the most superior of the undead.
I’ve never purchased a jar of Nutella.
Pertaining to my first fact, I have about 500 books in my house alone. Scattered in different rooms.
I own four copies of Lolita. Two copies of the Dhammapada. Two copies of Jurassic Park.
In high school, I defined myself as bisexual. Now that I’m older, I know better. I do not believe in sexual labels, nor do I prescribe to any “sexuality.” Because of this, assholes who feel the need to throw a label at everything also have a label for people like me. Apparently, I’m a pomosexual.
I’m rude and obnoxious because I find it too much of a bother to flat out tell people I don’t like them. Besides, it’s more fun this way.
I’m not very good with the whole “friends” thing.
I have high expectations for films, music, and books. That saying, your music, choice in books and favorite movies are probably shit and you should be ashamed for it.
I’ve never the Harry Potter series, and I do not plan to.
Mike B. and I are cutting gingerbread men when suddenly I just look up and turn at towards the puppet stage for a quick moment, then return my gaze back at the construction paper.
Mike:You just looked at the stage really quick and that back.
Me:Oh. Just thinking about the angle of the stage.
Me:No. It's just I want to be sure that I'm facing Judy the right way.
Me:I over think things. It's a habit after all these years.
Later, after telling Jyg about the story.
Me:So he tells me he never thought about it before. It's pretty much me after all these years of doing things that you have to over think otherwise you can seriously hurt yourself. (I look at her tummy and place both hands on it) Of course, there are somethings that happen when you don't over think that are well worth it.
I need to replace the battery to my netbook, but I’m thinking of holding off for a bit. I could always decide on buying a laptop. Though, with baby on the way, I gotta stop thinking of all the toys I can buy for myself and start thinking about the necessities for baby. So maybe I will think about finding a new batter for my laptop. Problem is, I’m having a hard time finding a replacement at a good rate and from a seller I can trust.
I checked around and one person told me all he carries is Toshiba laptop batteries. That’s great, only I have an Acer netbook so that doesn’t do me a lot of good. Having a new batter would mean wonders when I’m at the library just goofing around when I should be studying. I wouldn’t have to stalk my favorite seat until the person occupying it gets up. Not to mention that my adapter seems to be too heavy for their wall sockets. Woe is me.
