Inc., The Standard Examiner, and a Bookcrossing Bird

We get a magazine we didn’t subscribe to. We don’t pay for it, and we don’t know if anyone paid for it. Just’In’s been throwing each issue away until I came along. Even though it’s not something I would normally read, I still find parts of each issue fascinating. I wonder whether the issue we got today is telling the truth: This Is The Last Issue! It’s Not Too Late To ReSubscribe!

We also get a paper on our doorstep almost every day that we haven’t paid a cent for. I honestly think there’s someone in the apartment complex who delivers papers. I did for about a year, and when I was done delivering my route, I often had five or six newspapers left. I’m sure the deliverer in our complex just dumps them at the doors he walks past to his own apartment. Sometimes there’s one there, and sometimes there’s not, just depending on how many the he had left that day. They were great for wrapping Christmas Presents (pre-cut, free wrapping paper) and occasionally I’ll scoop it up from the doorstep, take it with me to campus, and inadvertantly leave it somewhere like a classroom or a professor’s office.

On that same note, I’ve got a book that, by its very nature, needs to travel. I’ve contemplated on leaving it somewhere like my local sandwich shop, our university library, or even someplace where an English class meets, but I wonder whether anyone here wants to read it befoe hurling it on its way again. Any takers here for Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse?

  1. oh! and you wanted yarn!
    Right now the only colors I have are pastal rainbow, and a purple/green blend. do either of these appeal to you?
    And how much do you need, about?

    • Yeah, they appeal to me, but neither match with a red hat without looking Christmassy. Or would they? I dunno, so I’m going to say I’m good. Consider the orange-y stuff a gift instead of a trade. 😀

  2. I love the random magazines that arrive sometimes in my mail. More enjoyable to read when I didnt pay for it. LOL.

    I got your letter today. I opened the envelope. I started to read the “Why interruption, distraction, and multitasking are not such awful things.” I got to the 3rd paragraph…and my eye noticed the new rolling stones with cute boys in eyeliner lying on my table and I picked it up. I then realized I just did what the article said. I laughed at myself and went back to reading it. I then got a drink of water. Went back to reading. Fed the cat and took out the trash. Started reading again. I have yet to finish reading the first one……Attention span of 20 seconds I guess. I just had to share! The articles made me smile. ^___^

    • I am now my granddma Mary. She sends articles from newspapers to everyone in the mail when she thinks it’s even slightly applicable. She sends articles with birthday cards and christmas cards. She’s done it for as long as my mom and I can remember.
