Why do books pre-hate me?

Bitching, whining, complaining, and general negativity

Books are the most animate inanimate objects that I have ever met. Have you noticed that they can make themselves invisible? Yup...d'ja ever notice that when you go to the book case that you know you last saw a particular book in, it's no longer there? Un huh...it's gone, invisible'd, cuz it knew you were coming for it. Tomorrow, of course when you go back after another book, the one you couldn't find today, and that you no longer need? Why, there it is...right where you thought it was in the first place. Laughing.

sansspina, books do that??, your little story reminds me of toy story and how when you are not looking toys have this whole little life of their own going on, so what was the last book that did that to you??

yeah same ! i found if you slap the monitor on both sides, punch the keyboard, sit on the mouse and tapdance on the computer then it works (better than it did before. Only you have to hug it afterwards and tell it how sorry you are, or it throws cookies at you.
Please don't ask about the extensive research i had to do to find that out...........

Nah...this goes back as far as childhood, when dinosaurs still roamed the planet. I also can never find my darn glasses (even this minute, my nose is right down here at keyboard level)...who knows where stuff goes? On the other hand, I always know where my house keys are...big deal. The last book? "The Name of the Rose"/Umberto Eco. I can't count how many times I've read that...my husband can always find em, not me.

And CDs are MAJOR offenders! Ever go looking for one particular CD that you must listen to or die? Gone, isn't it...Til the next time you go looking for another CD, and POP! There's the one you don't want.

I wonder if other women piffle away all their time just looking for stuff?

Back on topic: try the internet dear. Then yell some more. Getting kicked out of the computer section of the library is twice as much fun. Not as much fun as getting thrown out of fast food joints for crudeness, but then again, what is? :cocktail:

I wish I could get kicked out of somewhere... wait, i think i was! my sister and i were practically kicked out of a hardware store for fooling around in the windows and doors section! we couldn't resist playing in those window and door sets... :lol: once my friends and I tried to see what would make mothers put their hands over their kids' ears... luckily we didn't get kicked out because the place was huge and it was hard to recognize us anyway. :devil: Other than that, i seem to be on everyone's good side. :angel:
