i would be okay with a moss roof,

Last summer a bunch of the bookshelves in this part of the shop got rebuilt.  The good news was that now fancy old books aren’t getting covered in plaster dust and falling down and stuff.  The bad news was that in my capacity as Tallest Intern I spent several days climbing up and down a rickety latter and trying to not fall on the computer or, you know, drop a bunch of antique books on the floor and break them/get them all mixed up.

How do I have a such a COOL girlfriend?

I would consider Mont St. Michel to be a place that my heart is waiting for.

I hate when that happens
