BIC book club!

Some of us here have expressed an interest in a book club, myself, @mermadelove, @LCResz, @ZombieMetroAnt, @Mcakes. If you'd be interested in joining, reply below. My initial thought was to mail the books around but if it means that some people can't participate, then I'm all for dropping that requirement. I'd love this to be a place where we nominate our favorite book and others can read it and comment. Something fun for the new year!  ETA: the booklist:

Re: BIC book club!

Agreed @mermadelove!  I'd feel so rebellious drinking from it and having the heat reveal words from the "books that were once banned or challenged" Smiley LOL 


Re: BIC book club!

IT's a totlly genius idea @ZombieMetroAnt

Re: BIC book club!

This is too cool @ZombieMetroAnt! Thanks so much for sharing this, I might have never known about it!

Re: BIC book club!

I love their products @ZombieMetroAnt! The reactions I've gotten at work when I wear/carry them is really disheartening, though. People will ask about a tote or scarf, I'll explain the meaning/reference, and the response will be like


Re: BIC book club!

YES @MachynesSister Smiley LOL  that's exactly what I get when I've worn my Library Stamp sweater ha ha ha

Re: BIC book club!

Love that sweater @ZombieMetroAnt.


Re: BIC book club!

That's an awesome sweater @ZombieMetroAnt!

Re: BIC book club!

@MachynesSister @ZombieMetroAnt  This is AWESOME!!! I cannot believe how few people appreciate this stuff!!! I need some of these weareable accessories. To go with my Periodic Table of the Elements Dress. No. Really.Image result for periodic table of the elements dress zulily I wear this one to work and everyone loves it. But then again, I work in a doctor's office so #nerds. 


Re: BIC book club!

OMG, I'm in love with this dress! 

Geek on, girl... geek on...

Re: BIC book club!

The walter white inside me is geeking out! 

Re: BIC book club!

That is a great dress @mermadelove!

Re: BIC book club!

@myinsidevoice Thank you!

Re: BIC book club!

I had a travel mug with a caffeine molecule on it.  It got lost in a move.  It was my favorite travel mug.

Re: BIC book club!

@ChristineR07 @MachynesSister  Thank goodness for maily! ( and friends that are family.). Of note: I have been wearing a necklace that is the DMT molecule for almost two montjs. ONE person has asked me about it.... One. 

Re: BIC book club!

@mermadelove-  it's probably good people don't notice me carefully, I've been known to go out with only one eye with liner on, 2 different color shoes or socks, clothes inside out. It's a disgrace

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa  LOLOLOL I've totally left the house with two different shoes on!!!! And have not noticed until I've arrived at my destination. Fortunately, I only did THAT one once!! ANd I was going to a reading party where I was reading peoples tarot cards so..... I felt that gave me a pass!!!!!

Re: BIC book club!

I think people really don't pay attention @mermadelove. One of my coworkers wears middle finger earrings on occasion, and I'm the only one who has noticed!

Re: BIC book club!

@MachynesSister   So true. I went from wearing tricolor pasted twists down to my butt to rocking my natural curls dyed indigo ( see the Unicorn Hair thread)  and like three people said "what's different about you?"  REALLY?!?!?!? 

Re: BIC book club!

Re: BIC book club!

That dress is fantastic @mermadelove! I don't work with nerds like me unfortunately, but at least I've got a family full of them!

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa Is there a dead line or an ideal date to submit the book list? I am trying to find time in holidays chaos with kids been home all the time. I will try my best to submit a list by the end of this week if it isn't too late. Maybe I am being a bit too picky, it's taking me longer than expected Smiley Very Happy
