This makes me sad ...
Not only does this closing Borders in Hollywood represent my business going out of business, but it's taking away a place to meet quality people. As if dating isn't hard enough, now I'm losing the place I go to meet men. The economy is bad for dating, too!
I wandered in to search for cultured, well-read dorks on the clearance shelf. And all I met were a bunch of aspiring actors loitering in the audio book and Self Help sections.
When they say "everything must go," do they mean the written word as well? It's such a fleeting art. Last Thursday on NBC's 30 Rock, a little girl pointed at her mom and asked what a newspaper stand was, in which a homeless guy responded, "It's a toilet."
I felt inspired to yell with Tina Fey's character, "The written word is not dead!"
I didn't meet a guy in the bookstore, but I did get the new Tina Fey book, Bossypants ... one step closer to crazy cat lady. Too bad I hate cats.
