Also at the cafeteria the guy in front of me had an order that came to 6.66. The cashier, who is this crazy Haitian lady who is always saying "Jeeeesus help me get through this day, I have to go organize the chips" stopped right away when she saw 666 and screamed "666 is the devil NUMBER! Baby, you need to buy a candy, purge the devil's number out of this machine (imagine all this with a very heavy Haitian accent)" The kid is like 'Aw, I don't believe in that stuff.' She goes "oh oh but it is real! Lucky for you I will pray for you tonight! Jesus help you! You should buy a candy though" He's all "I don't want a candy" So she says "Ok. But you're marked by the devil's number, I will have to pray for you tonight." Then she said to me "Your order better not come to 6.66" I said "oh I don't mess with the devil, I'd buy the candy." duh. cause it's candy!!

we-ell - the comparison is not far off. This lady is older but the accent is similar enough, LOL. Forgot about Miss Cleo!!

This is completely unrelated to the Number of the Beast, but I also am trying to read 100 books this year and I just noticed that you have reached number 45! I'll never make as the summer is almost over and I'm hovering close to 25 books. :(

oh I will probably not make it either...it's fun to try though. Also, Rach, I have the advantage of a long commute!!! I wouldn't be able to scratch the surface if I lived in the city!
