Slowest. Day. Ever.

I was originally planning to catch the 589 at the end of the parking lot but elected to eat breakfast instead, and rediscovered how tasteless microwaved grits and eggs are. I wound up catching a different 589 up at Normandale Village, and suffered through a fairly chilly ride along with the dozen or so other passengers...the bus hadn't really been warmed up before it started its run, and considering that the ambient temperatures were in the single digits, it never really got comfortable in there.

Got to work at 8:10, finished most of the day's work by 9, and spent the rest of the day trying not to fall asleep at my desk and dealing with the occasional minute or two of constructive work that crossed my desk. At least I'll be able to do month-end balancing starting tomorrow, which should keep me busy and out of trouble.

The ride home wasn't quite as miserable as the ride in, but it was no pleasure cruise, that's for sure. Home now, doing laundry and anticipating an early bedtime.

You might have a good idea there. But consider the fact that SF fans usually tend to penniless geeks who are on the the lookout for bargains (read: Amazon). Nowadays, most specilaty booksotres I've been seeing aren't doing too well. Then again, the store might become a popular hang-out for SF fans after all! Consider starting small, perhaps in collaboration with a local club, and then expand if the business picks up.

Well, a lot of them are pretty low on the income/food chain, but many others are making pretty good money - even in a relatively small market like St. Paul/Minneapolis, there are enough fans to support two genre bookstores. So I have hopes that a SF/fantasy/anime/manga shop with a sizable used section would do well.
