pavlov’s book

i told you i can’t be trusted with money.. when i get a little money i buy books… and i did… i had a good sale today…which didn’t mean i had extra money..it just meant that i was feeling self indulgennt…after 3 days of migraines, panic attacks and crying jags…i hate fucking hot weather and i hate all my pets and my home and my wardrobe…i hate it all… somehow i my sleep i got poison ivy between two fingers  – weird huh? …i hate the entire lot of it.  but books are sacred…i can always rationalize buying more.. i can’t rationalize buying EXPENSIVE or Collectors items…. but i try to buy reading copies that retail some value…which can be a challenge…

After half a sucky day in the road melting for the Census bureau… i’d only been out in the freaking weatehr for 4 hours, but couldn’t WAIT to get in the shower and in my reading chair in front of a fan in the dark with my remote in my fist.  And once I did…i pretended to work while i surfed the net…and loaded up my netflix queue… then i found that the 1st season of Bourdain’s Layover was streaming ….it wasn’t bad enough that i was immediately hungry for a fried hot dog..but the mutherfucker went into bookstores…which made me hit the pause button and watch the titles he was checking out…i had nearly all the books except for the Bemelman’s food essays  which for some reason i missed out on…

So I pulled the laptop over and ordered two books that i may or may not finish.but my life couldn’t go on without them… well at least it felt like that… my little case of OCD usually demands instant gratification…I want the book, i search for the book, i find an original edition with a dust jacket…i buy the book and in a few days I will GET the book..and finding packages in the mailbox is infinitely more fun than putting them in the mailbox and watching the mail carrier ignore them and keep on walking…
