a frog the size of texas

August 18th, 2009

12:18 pm - I am fairly sure...

...that the book I just picked up off the shelf hasn't been opened since at least 1993, if not slightly earlier. Why? I just found a credit-card receipt from a Texaco station* containing a full credit card number, signature, and an expiration date of 2/13/1993.

This is why, boys and girls, you shouldn't use receipts that contain full credit-card numbers as bookmarks, especially in library books.**

* Price of gas, $1.13/gallon.

** Technically you probably shouldn't use any receipt, but I am being realistic here and will probably never lose my habit of using receipts as bookmarks in books I've just purchased. :D

Do you remember the post in which I reported that I sent [info - personal] rachelmanija a copy of the book with the whip-wielding Nazi leprechaun on the cover?

She has now read it so you don't have to.
