Booking Through Thursday: Vacation Spots

Do you buy books while on vacation/holiday? Do you have favorite bookstores that you only get to visit while away on a trip? What/Where are they?

This depends on the vacation. If it’s mostly for relaxing or I’m going to museums or I happen to be in a place where a bookstore is located nearby, of course I’m going to go in and at least browse. Sometimes I come away with a book and sometimes I don’t. I don’t really have a favorite bookstore that I visit on trips–probably because I try not to vacation in one place over and over again unless I have good reason.

Almost completely unrelated: I recently got an mp3 player and I’m thinking about hacking it so I can read ebooks on it. It’s not so much how as “do I really want to do it?” I’ll probably end up mulling about this idea over the next week or two. But at least it would be more portable than the laptop.

The Thursday Threesome: Guys and Dolls

Onesome: Guys– do the darnedest things, -right? What’s the darnedest thing you’ve had a male acquaintance do that you just know a gal would never even think of? (Okay, girls, toilet seats do not count on this one!)

Of course it doesn’t count–especially if a girl learns to pee standing upright. And unless it’s related to his physiology, if a guy does something weird, I usually chalk it up to that particular individual. It rarely crosses my mind that “this is something only a guy would do” or conversely, “this is something only a girl would do.” I’m an equalist–which means that I believe that both sexes have the capacity for stupidity.

Twosome: and– to turn it around, what’s the darnedest thing you’ve had a female acquaintance do that you just know a guy would never even think of? (Okay, guys, that hair-flip move doesn’t count either…)

See above. Also, I think some things are socially conditioned. The other gender may be thinking it (there’s always the possibility, of course, since no one has invented a mind reading machine) but he won’t do it because he was taught not to do it. Besides, I’ve seen guys with long hair do hair-flips before.

Threesome: Doll–ing yourself up? What is your idea of dress-up? Hmmm… Let’s go with Summer wear for now!

My normal mode of dress is jeans and t-shirt. So pretty much anything else is dress up.
