Q&A + LOGOS
14 June 2012
I liked this meme that I found on ... where else? ... Kwizgiver's blog.
1. What would you pick as a major, if you could go back to college and do it
2. Who is the one celebrity with whom you would most like to have an indepth
3. If you could make a living doing ANYthing, what would that be?
4. Whats your all-time very favorite dessert?
5. How many pairs of jeans do you own?
6. What is your favorite flower, and why?
7. What book has most changed your life?
8. What is your least favorite vegetable? Is there any way you can be persuaded
to eat it?
9. If you could take a nonstop first class flight to any destination, where
would you pick to land?
10. If your 15 minutes of fame included a stint on American Idol, what song
would be your trademark solo?
11. If you could pick one former friend (who has remained elusive in this wild
Facebook world) to reunite with, who would you unearth?
Today was the busiest day at the book store since I started volunteering. I don't think there was any point where the store was empty. I sold more than $200 worth of books, which is huge. But I didn't get a chance to read a whole book. I was working on a fascinating book called "Balzac's Omelette," which traces the history of French society through the descriptions of eating events in Balzac's novels. I had never thought about the "invention of the restaurant" before and was thoroughly enjoying exploring how you can figure it out by reading Balzac. If the book is still there next week, maybe I can finish it.
It was also had to get myself home from the store, since Walt had gone to San Francisco, so I had neither a driver nor a car. There is a bus stop 4 blocks from Logos and the bus, at this time of year, runs only once an hour, so I had to hustle to get there in time for the 6 p.m. bus. I got there with 5 minutes to spare, and am so glad that I was on time because it was blazing hot and I can't imagine sitting on that bench for a full hour waiting for the next bus!
But I did it. After 39 years in Davis, I can finally say that I
have ridden the commuter bus!
