My mind burrows through the bookworm's bedslab with a great deal of termite-like interest and interstice, not the least of which is my own image of the sex act being much like boffing amidst a pile of ARCs (i.e. full of errors, but ultimately rewarding)...
Having read in the blog,
I actually *am* a Fortean, were you to pin me down philosophically
I immediately googled "Fortean"
Amazingly, I had never had heard of forteans before.
Anyway it made me think of one of my all time favorite websites, which has basically been unchanged since 1997.
The Fluxus Indian Museum
Did this inventive people of the Great Plains,the Fluxus Indians really exist?
I think so....
Sounds like you fell victim to Munro's 'a masters degree or 25 years of bookstore' hiring policy. Me too.
Think of this as the Galloping Goose of Victoria threads...

Shit. I used to go to CHURCH there.
Wonder if they'd let me torch the place...?
So, what's going in there instead? Or nobody's decided yet? The unions have some kind of dispute, and that's why the building's been left half-standing?
BTW, the Memorial is just about as small to me as my corner supermarket is now, thanks in no small part to living on the same temporal plane as the SkyDome....
