Stopped by Barnes and Noble and used up my giftcard from Christmas. I’m going to read The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sunday, and more Neil Gaiman is always a good thing.
I was kind of sort of training her in, so I decided to try to get to know her a little.
Me: So, do you like reading? Or TV or anything?
Her: I hate reading.
So uh, what TV shows do you like?
Her: I watch MTV stuff, like Teen Mom. And Degrassi. What about you?
Me: Oh, I like BBC stuff. Sherlock and Doctor Who. And House, and shows like that.
Her: …. Doctor Who? Never heard of them. I don’t watch that kind of stuff.
Her: Oh, and Twilight! I love Twilight so much.
She did turn out to be nice… but we have absolutely nothing in common. And my sense of humor scares her.
Is it really that sad and pathetic that I find myself catching and laughing at each of the Metamorphosis references in Paper Monsters?
Oh the life of an AP lit student.
