I hate beavers

 So today I went out to the Japanese bookstore in Manhattan, Kinokuniya. I always go there to pick up some Japanese stuff, since it's usually cheaper than importing and I can browse around physically to spot titles I wouldn't have remembered to look for if I was searching online. I was quite surprised that a lot of the stuff was more expensive than it used to be. I remember before, I was able to get manga for maybe $2 more than the original yen value, so I'd be able to get a volume of Yotsubato! for maybe $8 or so. But now, I checked the price and those volumes rose to $11! Stupid economy. Value of the yen increasing while the US dollar decreases.

That aside, they didn't have the light novel in stick that I was hoping to buy, which was a bit of a letdown. Guess I'll have to import it if I want it on my bookshelf. While I was in the area I decided to drop by the Barns and Noble around there (48th and 5th avenue? Dunno, too lazy to check right now), and I notice that the sidewalk is more packed than usual, and there are police cars and such. I see a police officer in front of the bookstore talking to a few people. 
"What the hell is this?"

 I was talking to myself when I said that, but some girl creeped behind me and said
"Oh my god, you don't know? Are you even from Earth? lol" (Yeah, she really said "ell oh ell" at the end of her sentence)

So, I have no idea what the hell she's talking about, and she explains to me that Justin Beaver, or whatever the hell his name is, is inside the bookstore for his book signing. That's when I notice the huge line of people, and actually listen to what they're saying to hear every one of them gossiping. "Did you see him going in?", "My friend spent the night here and is still waiting on line, I wanted her to save me a spot but the security won't let me cut!" etc. 
They closed down the whole freaking bookstore for him to do his signing? Of what, his autobiography? Isn't he like 14 years old? What the hell is he going to write about? 

I hate going outside.

Sorry to hear about your uneventful day outside.

>his autobiography? Isn't he like 14 years old?

It would be ridiculous if it was true, not going to dignify this with a google search. But then again, this is the US.

I spent an inordinate amount of time in the outside world last night, and it has only confirmed my preference for just staying at home instead. Your post has reconfirmed my prior confirmation. Just stay inside, that's what I say.

Now that it is winter I try to avoid going outside too.

She actually said "ell oh ell." Seriously? I hate this generation of kids.

Also, yes, the US Dollar is quickly turning into Monopoly money.

I chuckled heartily at Justin Beaver.

Saying lol ... out loud ... is a sign of serious IM addiction :)

And I see what you did there , saying beaver instead of his real name :)

I just realized that this was titled "I have Beavers" instead of "I hate Beavers".

And yeah, it was that Kinokuniya.
