I missed the part where y'all discussed, in shocked and titillated voices, how Daniel Radcliffe is going to be starring in Equus next month.

So I discussed it, with shock and titillation, at work (well away from the kids section, since I don't want to, y'know, emotionally scar any wee ones).

"It's a wise career move," said co-worker S-. "His people probably told him he needed a drastic change."

"Man, I wish bookselling allowed drastic changes like that," I said, ruefully, having spent the day removing "Display Only!" stickers with various dangerous, fire-starting, eye-watering solvents.

S- narrowed his eyes. "So you're saying... we should try being naked."

(beat of horrified silence on everyone's parts)

S-: "Have you seen us?"

Perhaps I should have spent more time protesting, ("No! Only clothed! And hey! I look good naked, thank you very much!") but I was busy peeing myself with laughter.

Also, this conversation came directly after a conversation about what tactics we could use to stop people from going down the street to the new, extremely shifty second-hand/remainder bookstore. I think "naked clerks!" wins as worst added-value idea ever.

Hmm -- Equus plays at a local theatre, I think. One of my friends went to see it, was not forewarned about the... lack of clothing... and got a bit of a surprise. Imagine what the little ones are going to say, though, when they find out their Harry Potter. xD

Oh, & this used to be [livejournal.com profile] expositionary. I'm going to post my fic at [livejournal.com profile] wanderlight from now on and neglect my writing journal, so I've re-friended you here. Hello. :)

this is what parents are for. And net nanny.

God. 12-year olds are going to be googling "Daniel Radcliffe" in fits of mad crushing and finding... nudity.

Also, disturbing horse-eye-gouging stuff.

I am happy to not have wee ones to worry about.

I'll friend [livejournal.com profile] wanderlight. Are you still going to post at [livejournal.com profile] expositionary, or should I kill it from my flist?
