Names Have Been Changed Back Because Who Gives A Fuck

Names Have Been Changed Back Because Who Gives A Fuck

I got some sad news today. One of my favorite Renton characters about whom I wrote a post a really long time ago has passed. Renton will be a little less quirky and probably a little less drunk without Daniel. In Daniel’s honor I am going to repost my original blog that I wrote about him. In the original I changed his name in order to respect his privacy but now he’s dead and I don’t think he…

Everybody here reads, except Pan, who is illiterate (part of the whole never growing up thing - though Barrie, in the original, points out that Pan is the only boy on the island who can neither write nor spell, so the Lost Boys can apparently read), and Stitch, an ELL student of sorts at the very very beginning of his reading career.

Just Another Day in Hand Job Paradise…or as we call it, Renton

Bo is with me at the shop today and pretty much being awesome as usual. So this guy comes in, well-dressed (enough), probably in his fifties and starts asking if I have a books about clocks. I search through the Antiques and Collectibles section and come up empty handed. I explain to him that it’s just one of those things that never really comes in. We start chatting about Renton, what it’s…

When I decided to get a literary tattoo, I went looking through my bookshelves to find A SINGLE favourite. I couldn’t do it. This tree includes quotes from “The Name of the Wind” by Patrick Rothfuss, “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern, “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austin, “Oh the Places you’ll go” by Dr. Seuss, “Ella Enchanted” by Gail Carson Levine, “A wind in the Door” by Madeline L’Engle, “Romeo and Juliet”, William Shakespeare, “The Time Traveller’s Wife” by Audrey Niffenegger, “Kushiel’s Dart” by Jacqueline Carey, “The Big Orange Splot” by Daniel Manus Pinkwater, “Gone with the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell and “Horton Hears a Who” by Dr. Seuss. Done by Eric Brunning  at Lotus Land Tattoo Shop in Vancouver, BC.

Because there is no way to pick just one favorite book…no fucking way!

There is DEFINITELY Someone’s Soul Trapped in my Ceiling

So in April Zach and Bo and I moved into an “adorable” little triplex in Beacon Hill. “Adorable” is in quotes because I think it is fair to say that the honeymoon is so fucking over! While I love our neighborhood and I love being back in Seattle and I really love not living in my parents’ basement the actual house has warts. Metaphorical warts, not real ones because…ew. I am not even sure how a…

Self Promo for the Totally AWESOME or How to Whore Yourself Out Good and Proper

As a bookstore owner I meet a lot of awesome people. Some are artists, mothers, teachers, students, alcoholics, dads, heroin addicts, butchers, bakers, candlestick makers; but most of all I meet a lot of writers which is a fantastic perk of the job.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting C. S. Anderson, also known as Chuck and his AMAZING (and I cannot stress this enough) wife Gail. They had…

Further Adventures in Drunkloading and Other Completely Made Up Shit

This is going to be one of those posts where I open up my computer and force myself to write something….anything! Sometimes I have a lot of stories but they just aren’t mine to tell. This is probably also going to be one of those posts that is more about the fact that I need to abate my guilt about not having written in so long than my actually having anything in particular to say. So let’s put…
