The Saints lost. I bought books.

So yeah, the Saints lost to the Redskins. I don’t really care, but I have to admit there were a few times where I got in the spirit and yelled “Booooo” or shouted “YES!!” at the appropriate times. Once, I chanted “Who dat! Who dat! Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints!” with the eight other Saints fans that were in ear shot of our seats. OK, four times.

Five times?

The first 20 minutes of the game were dreadfully hot, but once the sun was blocked by the concrete overhang holding up the other 89,998 screaming fans, it wasn’t completely unbearable. I think I spent 34 dollars total throughout the game, buying a hot dog, a small tray of nachos and two diet cokes. Yes, all that. Totally insane, no?

On a completely unrelated note, on Friday I returned to the world of online purchasing, buying books on for the first time in several years.

I’m about 35 years behind the cool kids and have only now started reading Charles Bukowski. After buying Hollywood, Ham on Rye and Post Office from my favorite used books store, Second Story Books, I got hooked, but they didn’t have anything else. Amazon had The Most Beautiful Woman in Town for like $3 so I got that and also picked up a pair of books by David Sedaris and a couple Christopher Moore novels.

It’s gonna be a mini-xmas for me on Wednesday!
