girl spies boy in the other corner. she should try the pickup line i used today:

txt mssg: “do you want 2 get coffee and go 2 library?”
txt mssg: “that sounds GREAT!”

this appears to be the inaugural installation of a series called ‘Mousy Things to Do’ which recommends great things for like-minded nerdy people to do. you might not get the same kind of response on a sunny afternoon, but that depends on how cool the other person is. we got some breakfast and skipped to the Ballston library. it was a sunny day. i couldn’t have been happier.

i can’t speak for all libraries but the Ballston one is incredibly clean, well-designed and high-tech. there is a little room where you can buy old books for $1 or 50 cents. there’s even boxes of old records! I used to come here during the day when I worked at Barnes & Noble and had the day to myself. The library attracts a lot of interesting characters. In the bathroom today a scary old woman was washing her hair in the sink and kept assuring me she would clean up her mess, while staring out at me from under the faucet.
