How's this for optimistic?

Jen tagged me. I figure my chances of going out with her improve if I make good, so without further ado:

A book that changed your life: Yeager: An Autobiography What can I say, I was young and impressionable.
A book that you've read more than once: Mastering SQL. No matter how many times I read it, I still don't get it.
A book that you'd want on a desert island: Duh.
A book that made you laugh: Microserfs, by Douglas Coupland.
A book that made you cry: This has never happened. Ever.
A book that you wish had been written: Why nice guys finish last: A practical handbook for teenage dorks.
A book that you wish had never been written: Piercing the Darkness. Insulting, narrowminded, uninformed, and abysmally written. Even for fiction!
A book that you hope someone will write: Why nice guys still finish last: A practical handbook for 30-something dorks.
A book that you wish you had written: Snow Crash. Crappy sci-fi actually CAN predict the future!
A book that you're currently reading: The Instrument Flight Manual. Bill Kershner.
A book that you've been meaning to read: A Memory of Light. Robert Jordan. Because after 11 books leading up to it, you damn well have to read the 12th.
A book that you've bought but haven't read: The World Is Flat. Thomas L. Friedman. I started it, but just can't seem to care enough to finish it. It's a book that could (and should) have been a 20 page essay.

:) You've got a date to Skye's wedding if you need one!

I'm thinking I'm going to pick up that SAS book for fun know, in case shit. It looks interesting and I could totally impress people when we go camping. "A tent? We don't need no stinking tent. Let me build us shelter, yes?"

Plus, "The World is Flat" was on my wish list, but it's right next to "The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality" and "History: Fiction or Science?" If you hadn't guessed, I'm crossing my fingers hoping this world is nothing but "fiction."
