Stop judging me!

I went to Border's today and I bought a book. It's called "Seeing Me Naked".

I bought this book because I read a blog called The 5-Spot and it's written by a bunch of chick lit authors. There's this one writer who does recaps of Project Runway every week, and I love them. I don't get to catch the show on Wednesdays usually cause I'm either out, performing, or working - so I read blogs the next day. I read Nick Verreos' too (from Season 2) and I like hers almost as much. So I decided to buy her book.

I immediately thought, "I should buy this online." But I had a coupon, and I was getting my hair done and wanted something to read, so whatever. Sometimes I like cheesy and stupid. In fact I read a book called "Frenemies" over the summer that Evan still makes fun of.

So I went up to the register and I waited in line. There was a woman and a man ringing. I hoped I got the woman, because I felt like she would get it. She likes romantic comedies and reading cheesy books every now and then (I don't know her, I could just see it in her eyes.) But the guy, well, he was your typical bookstore worker. And I'm not entirely sure what's "typical" for a bookstore employee - but for some reason he embodied it. (No offense, Chringy.) So, of course, I got the guy. So I go to purchase the book, and I feel awkward. I could sense his judgment, and due to the title, I could feel him unbuttoning my sweater with his eyes. Well, maybe more judgment and less unbuttoning. I tried to make awkward conversation... but he was boring. He said things like, "Do you have your Border's Rewards card?" and then he told me the price, in a judgmental way. I told him to have a nice day anyway. Even though he was a judgmental jerk!

I want to know what Nick Wilson would think of this book. I see him laughing at me. And then making some obscure reference I know nothing about. But buddy, I got one word for you... bas relief. That was two words.

Oh, and I also got bangs today. I'm scared of them because they're so stylish and new. But I've got positive reviews, Ebert and Roeper think they're going to be a hit. Chringy said they looked "vamp-y" which I took as "Vampire" but Jeremy told me it meant "Seductress" which is better than saying I look like a vampire, I guess.

On a final note, jalapeƱo peppers are spicy!

(No offense, Chringy.)

The only thing that offended me in that post was the fact that you put an apostrophe in "Borders." GAH!
