Paquita Maria Sanchez I am the chick.

Moira Russell "Flannery bone," awesome.


message 5: by Paquita Maria (new)

Paquita Maria Sanchez It's the funnybone's opposite.

 ~Geektastic~ While there are no "immortal quotables" gleaned from this book, I think I may have gleaned a few from your review. "The world holds many a charming tune for the snake within us all." Fantastic.

Kemper "The world holds many a charming tune for the snake within us all."

I'm gonna get that embroidered on a pillow.

Paquita Maria Sanchez I think it may be one of the more twss-y things I've ever said in a review. In fact, this whole review...Charm the snake! Hit the bone! Salve the wound!

Miriam Come tend a bar near MEEEE! I will come every night and kick anyone who tries to play Toby Keith.

(Says the person who used to put Rocky Horror on the jukebox and actually dance the Time Warp around the bar)

message 13: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Last night I was at a bar! And I thought of you because one of your favorites came on, "Hotel California."

Paquita Maria Sanchez I have a new and much deeper hatred these days. It's so intense that I am almost glad when I hear "Hotel California." It's this song called "Crazy Bitch" by this GOD AWFUL band called "Buckcherry." Every time it plays (which is every single night at least 2 times) I crush whatever I'm holding, close my eyes, and just try to remember to breathe. Do yourself a favor and DON'T listen to it just to know where I am coming from or be there for me or anything like that. Avoid it at all costs, forever and ever.

Eh?Eh! Paquita Maria wrote: "Every time it plays (which is every single night at least 2 times) I crush whatever I'm holding,...."

Since you're tending the bar, the management must be noticing the spike in glassware expenses? Heh, I haven't heard that song yet.

Paquita Maria Sanchez They listen to that shit in Canada too? And we Americans all thought it was supposed to be Heaven up there.

Eh! There's usually a can around for me to smush, or at least a dishrag to just squeeze real tight. I figured it out, though! I told the regulars today that EVERY TIME they play that fucking song, I am going to play When in Rome's "The Promise" and Erasure's "A Little Respect" immediately after (paying the extra change to "play this song next") back to back at FULL volume. I will retrain their brains to fear Fuckcherry. I am confident about this.


message 17: by Miriam (new)

Miriam I do not know this song. I cannot have solidarity with you, but I can represent the innocent, untrammeled past in which you, too, were happily unaware of it.


message 18: by Paquita Maria (new)

Paquita Maria Sanchez God I hate that fucking song.


message 19: by Miriam (new)

Miriam You can come visit! My boyfriend is all German-choral-music-all-the-time for Advent. Complete change of pace.

Kindred spirits. I DESPISE that song and I hope the assholes that wrote it choke on their holiday nog.


message 21: by Paquita Maria (new)

Paquita Maria Sanchez I wish I could get outta here and do some traveling! Somebody gimme some money.

Amber...yes, that song deserves an award for being so awful. I hate to sound like a broken record, but I seriously cannot stress this point enough to compensate for the torture that is hearing that song all the time. It's not possible. It never will be possible. I hope that your life actually doesn't flash before your eyes as you are dying, because hearing that song in my last moments would just be such an enormously cruel trick on my brain's part. No lie. Anyway, books!


message 22: by Miriam (new)

Miriam Is there anyway to sabotage the jukebox? Maybe pour acid on the associated button/code number for the song?


message 23: by Paquita Maria (new)

Paquita Maria Sanchez I wish!


message 24: by Miriam (new)

Miriam I'm sure sour mix would have some deleterious effects...


message 25: by Paquita Maria (new)

Paquita Maria Sanchez I think that dollars and dollars of Erasure and the Thompson Twins should slowly do the trick. On Sunday, I simply threatened a high-volume 80's blast if the song was dare played; I didn't hear it then, and I haven't heard it again since! (Which is very unusual.) Halle-fuckin'-lujah.
