Quiet Revolution

Why can’t people just shutthefuckup once in awhile? Everyone’s on their cell phones on the bus, yelling into the receiver as if we all want to hear about how their boyfriend is ‘triflin,” or they’re on it in the fucking grocery store, talking to their bougie, castrated husband about what kind of English muffins he wants.

In the staff meeting for the school paper I work for, people kept talking while the editor was trying to talk. Just carrying on their own goddamn conversations. Hello? Are we in the third grade? Have we not figured out that meetings, while boring and tedious, go a lot faster when everyone focuses and speaks one at a time?

The worst, though, is the library. I can no longer study in the FREAKING LIBRARY.

I thought I could at least count on getting some peace in the library, but apparently not. I’m in favor of bringing back the old-fashioned, elderly, cranky librarian who shushed people all the time, because the tattooed twentysomethings currently employed by my school library aren’t cutting it.

Also, Ossie Davis totally should have won for best guest actor in a drama on the Emmys. Boo.

    The emmys suck. Any organization that picks Everyone Loves Raymond over Arrested Development is a sham. The stacks are the best place to study, there is no one there.

    I like the library as a ‘social scene’. Where else could I wear full Robot regela, totting a book on late 19th century France, and still be viewed as only ‘slightly’ freakish, as opposed to when I pull these stunts in local bars on Friday nights. I know some slightly unattractive wench in the library wonders in her mind ‘who is that guy’, and that wench, that wench will be my wife one day.
