--but you can call me the Killer of Trees.[1]

I don't think my supervisor exactly believed me when I told him how much he was asking me to print. Or possibly he didn't realize that I meant the *big* binders.

Anyway. I'm tripping over people on LJ, which is fine, and recognizing them, which is starting to seem rather odd. I know Ottawa only has four hundred people[2], but do they really all know each other?

Bored. Thinking about ordering BPAL. Thinking I should call the vet about Toby's remains[4]. Thinking about spending my lunch break going out for coffee, and how odd it is that for all the people I associate with downtown, none of them really live there. (The people I know who've got a long history of living there or within quick strolling distance of it, I don't associate with downtown. Strange.)

[1] And if anyone except possibly [livejournal.com profile] oni_neko gets that one without benefit of Google, I will be stunned.[3]
[2] ObNote: With extras for the street scenes.
[3] Oh my god, those stories are still online. I remember them from... yeesh... before I had residential internet access, so before I got out of high school... back when I had a pageful of handwritten URLs on notebook paper... when I was incidentally learning HTML by saving web pages I thought were neat to a floppy disk and taking them home and opening them up to read with WordPerfect 5.1... before I had e-mail besides NCF... sweet Christ I'm getting old.
[4] The return of said remains. I mean, it's not like I've been keeping him in the fridge or anything.

Re. 2: Yes, and what's more, too many of the extras know me.

It was actually spotting David on your LJ that threw me.

Heh... he was surprised when he looked at my flist and realized that I knew all you folks, too. I don't "read" as being a part of the same crowd, I guess. (Any guesses on why that might be?)

Oh, perhaps a couple. ;)

We'll have to discuss it over coffee/other concoctions. Saturday early afternoon good? Also, any books you want to borrow? I think I still have your Bellwether, so I'll return that, and you were going to sublend me Stand on Zanzibar.

I think you already returned Bellweather via Jason. And yeah, Saturday works. Where (preferably downtown?)/what time?

Second Cup at Rideau and Dalhousie at 1:30 would work for me, but I'm flexible if you prefer some other brand or branch!

'k, seeya then!

Either we all know each other, or we *get* to know each other because we already know people in common.

E.G.: I met Marna in a religious studies class.
It turned out she already knew three quarters of my friends.

See? :-)

Re: [3]: Hee! :-D NCF. :-) I remember that stuff. :-)
