A Shortcut to Mushrooms

I hate those A.T.M. consoles that take your card and keep if for the length of time it takes to complete the transaction. It always made me feel uncomfortable, and then one day at a WaMu I found that the A.T.M. wouldn't give up the card at all. I had to shout to the live tellers to get them to come over and open the A.T.M. so I could retrieve my card. They asked me not to yell into the bank that my card was stuck and I asked them why, logically pointing out that I couldn't leave the A.T.M. and the only way to get their attention was to shout. They shut up and got my card. Nowadays, I just avoid using those consoles if I know that they're of that type.

Just a friendly warning: If you ever say "A.T.M. machine" in my presence, I will laugh at you with extreme contempt.

I have created a new Review/Essay list as a resource so I don't have to spend hours hunting around my own journal looking for previous comments on a movie. It is not yet complete (and I plan to make the list navigatible by letter in the not too distant future), but it is better than nothing.

    I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that it may incriminate me.

    Not too many, actually.
