Morton Girl Icon

(no subject)

The reason for "Surprise! Will Hooper!" was that I received a surprise visit from Will Hooper today, not too long before lunch.  I came out of the bathroom and there he was, with a stack of books.  In addition to the Ex Machina trades that I've been hunting, said stack included (1) a book that I thought I'd loaned to someone else entirely, (2) a book that I hadn't even realized wasn't still on my shelf, and (3) a book that I didn't think I even owned.

Also, while I'm on the subject: I know it's juvenile of me, but one of my absolute favorite things about Ex Machina is the fact that Mitchell Hundred is such an incredibly foul-mouthed individual.  For me, it adds a great deal of realism to the book.  He sounds like somebody I might know, because almost all of my friends cuss.  A lot.

Also also:  Will and I hugged before he left.  It wouldn't surprise me at all if that act "freaked out the squares", which should give you an idea of the kind of people I work with.
