so, i live in dunwoody, and most people consider this the suburbs. i used to. i don't now.
you know why i don't?
i went to alpharetta yesterday.
shawn was in a magazine for his boombox pc. he was in two actually, one in the uk (custom pc) and one here (bpm). we've been searching for this issue of bpm for months now, because unlike custom pc, they didn't mail us a copy, and they kept putting off what issue it was going to be in.
the new shipment came in on thursday to the barnes and noble down the road, but was sold out friday because they only get three copies of it per store. the store called the alpharetta store and they had one copy, so it was put on hold and we headed up there.
alpharetta is breeder central.
and apparently barnes and noble is where all the scene kids hang out, wearing their safety pins and band shirts and wrist warmers sipping their starbucks and looking at teen people.
i was... utterly disgusted. i hate kids, especially self righteous teenagers. especially those that are scenesters. jesus christ people, just be yourself. i didn't touch anything the entire time we were in the store. i held my arms really close to me so i wouldn't touch the annoying scene kids.
funny thing though, there was this little asian girl, probably around 2 or 3 and she was wearing these shoes that squeaked when she walked and it was probably the cutest as well as the most annoying thing ever. it made me want squeaky shoes, as well as wanting to smack the parents for letting her wear said shoes in a book store.
the icing on the cake is that the magazine printed shawn's article full page. but half of the page is the most unattractive picture of shawn they possibly could have taken, so the ride home was filled with shawn making jokes about how he looked like a corpse clutching his prize possession.
