Veronica Mars continues to kick the ass of nearly everything else on TV besides maybe The Office. See also: subject line.  But aside from that, no television talk today.  Books instead.

Specifically, LibraryThing, which may turn out to be the most addictive website ever.  So far my library includes only a handful of my favorite books (like, 80-something), because attempting to catalog everything I own and/or have read would be a little ridiculous.  Still, this thing is going to be huge before I'm done with it.  I'm so hooked.  Given my addiction to actual libraries, this should not be surprising.

Also in literary news, I've finally gotten around to reading John Hodgman's The Areas of My Expertise.  As you might expect - if you have any idea who I'm talking about - it's hilarious and insane and amazing.  Between this and his appearances on The Daily Show and even those stupid Mac commercials, I think I want to marry him, a little bit.

I'm so mad. I forgot to tape last night's VM. I'm sure it will be re-run, but now I have to wait another month or two for that...

We got a Tivo, so I record Veronica Mars every Tuesday, since I'm in class. I also record Gilmore Girls. But I watched this week's VM with such anticipation.

I literally was sitting at the edge of the couch, holding a Ketchup bottle, waiting for it to slowly glide onto a plate full of french fries.

Ok, the french fries part is a lie. But I was for sure at the edge of the couch, which takes a toll on your shins. Suckage.

I see your quote from 'How I Met Your Mother.' I may just have to steal it for MySpace-Land...muhaha.

My favorite one from the last ep:

Ted: 'Are you up for some super loud, repetitive music that hasn't changed since the mid-90's?'
Marshall: 'Ah, only always.'

Q U O T E
"The King knows what's happened and it gives him nightmares, but the rest of them don't know. They don't know they've become so small. They don't know they're supposed to be dead. They don't even know they've been saved. To them the ceiling of rock looks like a sky: light comes through a pinhole between the stones, and they think it's the sun."
-Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
