I’d go to Egypt

If I wasn’t such a wuss. (And could afford it.) Instead I go to the library. The check-out line took forever. I’m not used to being on the check-out line, but the way this branch works, they send any copying you have done here and you have to wait on line to get it. Not the best system. (For me.)

I’m way behind in all my regular shows because I can’t stop watching the news about Egypt. Still rooting for the protesters. Boo to the government thugs who got violent. The army is surrounding the square today so it has been peaceful so far.

  1. It’s no fun to wait in line, but look at that guy in front of you reading! A book! Beautiful sight. In the lines I wait in, primarily at the post office, everyone is either complaining about the line (so original) or playing little beep-beep games on whatever handheld phone or device they’re slaves to. I need to wait in more library lines, apparently.

  2. I agree, a beautiful sight. I always check out what people are reading on the subway, and it saddens me how few a reading books these days, but there are always readers still, so there’s that.
