Wow, I coulda had a V8!
Egad, my baby's due on 06-06-06!
Crap, I got pregnant a third time with a 'road worker'.
Why does everyone keep saying my maternity gown is satanic? IT'S GOTHIC!
Have you seen this boy?

This week is the booksale for the Westchester Rotifers or Pastafarians or something. Plenty of cheap stuff there in the parking lot of the Ralph's at Sepulveda and La Tijera. Definitely good if you're into Clancy or Grisham, but I found some interesting gems in there. Some 60's era Agatha Christies, Cordwainer Smith's Nostrilia, a murder mystery with a fictionalized Ambrose Bierce as the detective in 1880's San Francisco, a bio of Douglas Adams, and a couple other things.
