Common Good Books Spring Cleaning
A list of stuff we discovered during our annual spring cleaning:
--Four (4) Vacuum Cleaners -- Seriously
--One (1) Christmas Tree
--Ten (10) Copies of Pudlo's France (Hotel & Restaurant Guide) 2008/09 -- Planning a trip this summer? We've got an idea where you might want to go.
--One (1) Employee who can't stop Twittering -- even when in SD
--These guys who probably read some cool books.
--One (1) picture of Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro playing baseball:
--Ten (10) copies of this book about Mermaids.
N.B. Mermaids rank third on our employee favorites list of half-reptilian/half-mammal creatures. The first two, if you're wondering: The lovely seahorse and the fearsome, yet allusive half-shark-alligator/half-man.
--Five (5) copies of Chuck Klosterman's novel Downtown Owl on our sale table, marked down to $12.00 (We didn't want to read it either).
--The strange phenomenon that whenever a certain employee starts talking about his conceptual band "The Aristocrats," (with two new singles "Jennifer Doyle On The Move" & "Does It Look Like I Want to be Approachable.") somebody who actually has a band seems to appear in the store.
--Too many MC's not enough mics.
--One (1) copy of the 2006 Sporting News Baseball Guide -- I'm going with the Cardinals to win it all. Your pick?
-- Jimmy Hoffa
