maeyan: Tell me I'm not allowed to--

mpoetess: You're not allowed to.

maeyan: Leave work at lunch, walk to Borders, and stock up on porn so I can escape to Canada without feeling guilty.

[User guide: Porn for maeyan = yaoi manga. Guilty = because she has a reserve list there, and would feel bad for not picking up her books before she ran for the border.]

I'm going to bed, because I have a class to teach tomorrow, for which actually showing up for work is a prerequisite. If my nap this afternoon is any indication, I will dream about the election. Hopefully the actual results will be better than what my subconscious came up with, which was me stuck in a hotel in the middle of a Young Republicans rally. I was underdressed, and there was actually an entry fee, despite the fact that it was more of a cocktail party than a rally, and I'd been dragged there by some vague acquaintance who saw me at the corresponding Democratic gathering and was all "Come over and see what we're doing over here!" They were very polite about it all, though. And then I looked for a bathroom and couldn't find one, as is usual in my dreams. My take on this is that if Bush wins, none of us will have a pot to piss in. But that could just be the Mountain Dew talking.

Oooh, I like yaoi manga. I had no idea Borders stocked them. Is there a list of the titles somewhere? Are they in English or Japanese or do you know? (Babbling, sorry.)

They're in English, though most of them are traditional Japanese right-to-left style, from Tokyopop, or.. gah, can't remember the other publishing company. Also, not especially hardcore yaoi, from what I recall -- more shounen-ai. And not a clue about which titles she's getting from Borders (other than Gravitation and Descendants of Darkness) but I'll poke my roomie to get her to answer with more, if indeed there are more.

Ah, I thought it might've been Tokyopop. I have the entire FAKE series from them (rather graphic on the yaoi) and that seems to be the only semi-hardcore one they've translated so far. I've been to their site and requested that they translate Level C and West End, but no luck so far.

If your roomie does know of others, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

Digital Manga is also releasing Yaoi. You might want to check them out. :)
