If you hit me, baby, one more time, I'd sue!

I signed up for next week's 30km Freeway Bike Hike to Joondalup, so decided to do some practise today by cyling to Fremantle. The odometer showed 15km at Cottesloe, so I headed back. The wind direction was from the south-west, so the trip back was much easier. Maybe next time I'd go all the way to Freo. There's a booth at Myers promoting Britney Spears' fragrance called Curious. I guess she's not the only one curious. I'm curious too; curious about why anyone would wanna buy her perfume! I mean, look, if you buy Ralph Lauren's Romance, naturally the idea is to feel romantic. If you buy Chanel's Allure, you want to feel as alluring as Chanel herself. If you like Calvin Klein's Eternity, you want to be eternal to your partner. And if you like Spears' stuff, you want to feel... as CURIOUS AS BRITNEY! If you actually bought it, talk to me, thanks. I've just finished, over several days, Amy Tan's autobiography called The Opposite of Fate at A&G. (She's actually a comedian, not just a writer.) Now, what's the difference between stealing, and reading it in the bookshop? Because this is a little like stealing; I have the intent of going into the bookshop, reading a few pages each day and not buying the book as a result. I guess they don't mind, for who would enjoy standing and reading? I'm now doing the same thing with a book called In The Beginning that talks about how the KJV Bible came about. First few chapters are about the invention of the printing press and how the church leaders were so against an English version of the Bible because they didn't want anyone else to read it, for then they would lose their power to control the masses. (It used to be in Latin.) Next chapter is about the Reformation...

Amy, since you think the Spears parfume is quite good, you MUST get it! Especially when you are also a CURIOUS person, always asking 'question of the day'! It is the PERFECT scent for you! wahahhaaa

Reading while not buying the book also got risk one. What happens if some ppl buy the book from the bookshop the next day.

If someone else buys the book, then it will be replaced with a new one on the shelf! LOL
