Struck From On High
The other day I was thinking about buying a new hat. That old Simpson's one I've been using to cover my head was getting rather worn out. After looking for a store that sold cheap, yet fashionable hats I decided it was too much work and I really didn't want a new hat anyway. Then, as I headed downtown to get some food, I heard (and felt) an annoying splat. A bird had crapped on my head! Now, I'm not one who believes in omens or signs from above, but it was hard to deny that now I needed a new hat. I went to the Army surplus store and bought an antique WWI German helmet (with the spike on top!) and wear it everywhere with pride.

Ok, I lied. I bought a plain black army baseball style hat. I think it looks nice.

And, I should note that even though my hat took the brunt of the bird bomb, it did splatter all over the rest of my clothes. I pretended not to notice...

Fucking pigeons.

Books and What-not
Here's an old meme that I just came across. It's all about books.

One book that changed your life: The Road, by Cormac McCarthy

One book you’ve read more than once: Truthfully, I read almost every book more than once.

One book you’d want on a desert island: Probably The Lord Of The Rings. It's good and long.

One book that made you laugh: In The Company Of Ogres, by A. Lee Martinez

One book that made you cry: Watership Down, by Richard Adams

One book you wish had been written: I don't know. That's a tough one.

One book you wish had never been written: Every book should be written.

One book you’re currently reading: Twilight Watch, Sergei Lukyanenko

One book you’ve been meaning to read: Don Quixote. I've just never got around to it.
