Opening a library! [public]

So, apparently I've inherited a shitload of trashy romance novels. If anyone else is into that sort of thing, feel free to drop by and pick a couple up. I know I won't run out anytime soon! We're on Maple, right by the park.

Trashy romance novels? Really? Shit - sign me up! I haven't read a good M&B in forever!!! Where'd you get them from anyway?

 - ..

I guess it was my Christmas present or something. Sorry I haven't been terribly social today- I've been curled up in my room reading hearing aid-less to minimize the music and ear pain. But come on down, I'm sure they've got something you'd be interested in!

 - .

Ear pain? The jingle bells getting to you sweetie? Have to agree - it's horrible. I've tried to be out all day. Went for a run this afternoon. After seeing that poor bastard this morning. Can I come down tomorrow? I'm pooped - and sweaty. The shower's calling me and you probably don't want to put up with man-sweat smell. Not pleasant.

 - ..

I've always had really sensitive ears, but after the fire alarms and now the loud-ass music this morning, yeah. About the only thing I'm hearing is a chorus of gnomes banging anvils in my ears today.

And feel free to come down anytime- until the snow and ice goes away I don't see myself getting out much. Walking's not my best suit, and I don't have the reflexes for ice driving.

PS: Man-sweat can smell very sexy sometimes. Just so you know.

 - .

So - if I can find a pair of fluffy earmuffs, they should come your way then? I'll make a note of that. In the meantime, I will so be your way cadging books off of you :-)

And as a PS, only sometimes. And a shower is better.

Not really into the romance thing but... Christ I need a distraction... Any book is a good book when you're desperate huh?

 - ..

Distractions are always good. Come on by, though. I don't think I've met you anyways.

Should I be worried that the only people who've taken me up on my offer so far are men?

 - .

Yup, you should totally be worried - especially with this one. Haven't met him, but he sure can talk on the journals... Hey, Tobyias, I live with this girlie, so if you're coming by to cadge a book, pop upstairs and say hi!

 - ..

I don't mind. Talking through the computer is a lot easier than face to face, especially for the person trying to understand me!

 - .

I don't know if I'm in the mood to make new friends. I

Sorry.

 - .

... okay. sorry.

 - .

Don't be. Just... After the Scott thing... Helluva way to start a day.

 - .

It's okay - you ever need to bend an ear, well... drop me a line. Doesn't need to be in person. No pressure.

 - ..

It's ok, I understand. It's really hard sometimes to make friends around here. Too often they end up vanishing on you.

Still, if you wanna talk, there's always the computer if you'd rather not meet face to face.

 - .

No. Don't be worried. We're just fantastic men. That's all.
