My Reading Listening Habits

The subject line of my latest e-mail from is "How to be a Corpse". Creepy. Especially since the fortune in yesterday's fortune cookie told me "You Will be a Corpse". Also, little known fact: my computerized career placement test in 8th grade told me I was only qualified to be a corpse.
