I almost started my last post with "I was killing time looking at old facebook pictures", but I stopped myself. The reason I stopped myself- in The Phantom Tollbooth, the clock-dog, Tock, gets really upset when Milo uses the phrase "killing time". Since reading this, I can't use this phrase. I think my childhood reading may have had too large of an effect* on my psyche.
* Did I use effect/affect correctly here? I'm pretty sure I did.
