The invisible divide

Bookish , Holidays are supposed to be fun, right? , I cannot believe this is happening. , Thank goodness for friends. , The blog people , Work

Isn't it weird when real life friends become online friends and vice versa? Yeah. I mean, I'm used to meeting people online and then meeting them in person. We all know how that goes. But what happens when an in person friend starts a blog?

Well, first you start finding about things in odd ways. Like you read that she's going to ask you something before she actually asks. I'm not, of course, suggesting that she shouldn't have written it... but perhaps it would have been easier to kill two birds with one stone and ask me directly in the blog.

And then this thing happened to me last night that I was going to blog about, but I looked over and Erica already had. You should read her post, because boy, is the holiday season at the bookstore fun. And to whet your appetite, my new favorite quote:

What a customer said to me last night:

"Hey, can I get, like, a library card for here? Is this a library? Nah, this ain't no fucking library."

I kid you not.

Ok, Ok, I swear I didn't know I'd crossed over to being an "on line" friend & that you read me regularly. Well, actually, I just didn't really your job was the sort that forced you to frequently seek internet relief from the tedium.
