This month’s theme for Where in the World Are You Reading (this month’s host: Lisa) is Waiting.
In the past few weeks, I’ve had to do a bit more waiting than usual. First, there was jury duty. It gave me a chance to read a bit (when you read almost 200 pages of a 1098 page book, it’s still just a bit) of this:
I really, really wanted to show up in court like this, though:
I’m pretty sure that would’ve gotten me dismissed a lot sooner.
The bulk of my waiting, however, was because of our dryer, which inconveniently quit blowing hot air. It was kind enough to quit during my last load of laundry for the week, though. So I took myself and my book off to the laundromat:
I read a bit of Timbuktu and entertained myself with the Suds ‘n Such sign. Otherwise, it was pretty boring. But since laundromat dryers kick serious drying ass, I was only there for about 1/2 hour.
Unfortunately, the following week, I had to do it again, since the repairman visit/not worth fixing/new dryer saga ended up being a two week affair. This time I decided to try a different place, because I figured if I had to go the the laundromat, I might as well entertain myself with a comparison study. At least this one had a mural (we do like our murals in Morro Bay):
It was also empty. So my book got to pose for a picture:
The Soap Center wasn’t nearly as cute, and the music left A LOT to be desired (I’ve discovered I can’t read while the Bee Gee’s warble in the background), but it had the same kick ass dryers.
It’s probably a good thing I didn’t take IT with me to the laundromat, since it has it’s own featured in the book: the Krazy Kleen. I probably would’ve run screaming from the building had I read that while waiting for my clothes to dry.
