Booking Through Thursday: Monogamy

One book at a time? Or more than one? If more, are they different types/genres? Or similar?

(We’re talking recreational reading, here—books for work or school don’t really count since they’re not optional.)

It varies. Sometimes I’m reading one book at a time. Sometimes several. As for genre, sometimes it’s the same, sometimes it’s different. I know my answer isn’t exactly helpful–I’m just not particularly fixed in my reading habits. If I were, I wouldn’t get anything read.

The Thursday Threesome: Going out to Dinner

Onesome: Going out– means what? Deal with this and plan that and…? …or can you just leave and hit it … where? Hmmm… Where is “out” for you?

It means getting out of the house. Or not being in lab. I usually don’t do much planning about where I’m going or what I will be doing.

Twosome: “…to– the dogs?” Is that just a strange expression? …or do you ‘get’ it? What’s the most curious expression you’ve heard or you use and others don’t ‘get’?

I understand the one about dogs. The first thing that comes to mind about strange expressions is “h-e-double toothpicks.” For some reason, I had a really difficult time wrapping my head around that one. Some New Englander type things are just plain weird.

Threesome: Dinner– bells and chuck wagon triangles: what sound means food to you? Okay, okay, sure, the ice cream truck counts!

Hm. The dinner bell, I suppose. Also, when I was an undergrad living in the dorms (I feel really odd saying that because at the institution I went to, it was called a “house”) there was a set dinner time. Some of the students were hired as “waiters” (who didn’t act much like real waiters)–the head waiter would ring a triangle to signal the beginning of the meal. The house president would end the meal by hitting a gong.
