1) the sophistication of the scam. A charge made on the Dotytron's card, with MY name authorizing it. How did that happen?
2) how insulted I was that someone thought I would have an aol email account. What is this? 1994?
3) this is probably an indication that I should be more circumspect about shredding stuff. I'm always like, "oh, this credit card statement? Booooring! Into the recycling with you, friend!"
In unrelated news, Purple Rain came on the radio the other day.
That being said, Alone ROCKS. When Nancy drops to the floor on her knees and wails on the guitar in her sweeping, giant-collared, black trench coat with her magnificent heaving bosom? Quit it! If Heart comes back this summer, I'm so going. When the (synthesized) drums kick in, I will without fail, do the most horrible, awkward, unintuitive and inaccurate air drum fill you have ever witnessed in your time on this earth. And yet, I CAN'T STOP MYSELF.
Sooooooooo...last night I was at the Eaton Centre before class returning some kiddie stuff for the Big Yam and I saw this tank top on a mannequin outside of Hot Topic and I kind of stopped dead in my tracks and I kinda sorta really really really want it. I know. GIANT NERDLINGER. The thought processes are as follows:
a) how nerdlinger is it to get a Hunger Games tank top?
b) am I too old to be wearing this kind of tank top? Note the fact that the model in the picture is probably like, 14 MAX
c) it IS pretty tasteful
d) am I too old to be setting foot in Hot Topic buying something for myself?
I feel like I need to be talked down from the ledge here, folks. Help me help myself.
In other news, I'm still dutifully slogging my way through The Emperor of All Maladies which is that (award-winning!) biography of cancer but which is kind of mucho depressing and disheartening. Then my Academic Book Club picked Joseph Boyden's Through Black Spruce as our next read and I'm already super-depressed. I don't want arty-Canadian literature about First Nations people! I want more Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I want it stat! I know what I want, and I want it now!
The Big Yam had his follow-up appointment with Sick Kids dentistry after Tooth-Gate-gate and his gums are healing well. Now it's up to the pediatric dentist to monitor the situation and keep an eye on whether his bottom adult teeth grow properly and space themselves right. Stay true, bottom adult teeth, stay true.
