Books read more than once.

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
The other side of the looking glass where things are not what they seem; or are they?

Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
 I read this insane book twice years ago. Now everyone uses the phrase “Catch 22” without having to go to the trouble of reading the book.

The Secret History by Donna Tartt
 Murder on a small New England campus. Wonderfully plotted and written. I am now reading it for the 3rd time.

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
 If there is a perfectly written book, this is it. Simple, clean prose and not one word is wasted.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zaf?n
 A young boy, Daniel, is taken by his father to the Cemetary of Forgotten Books. There he finds a book, The Shadow of the Wind, that will change his life. Daniel searchs for information about the mysterious writer Julian Carax while living a life that begins to parallel the writers’. He finds what he is looking for; and he finds what he is not looking for.

The novel is Dickensian, and melodramatic, and probably more fun to read in Spanish. and I love it.

Another stupid bumper sticker

Go For It
God Hates a Coward

I have many problems with this bumper sticker.

  What the hell does it mean?

  What sort of person thinks this bumper sticker means anything?

  “Go For” what?

  What kind of arrogance does it take presume to know what god hates, or doesn’t hate?

  Does this mean that god loves terrorists? Whatever else they are; they certainly aren’t cowards. Yeah! I guess that’s it.

okeydoke

Variant(s): or okey?do?key /-‘dO-kE/
Function: adverb
Etymology: reduplication of OK. used to express assent. commonly used by those people who believe if a one, or two, syllable word is good, three, or more, is better.

I have found myself using this word lately. I have no idea why. Okeydoke?

Fight like a real man. Get down on your knees and prey!

Did I get that right? Something looks off.

“One of those days,” as opposed to “End Of Days,” has arrived.

Aren’t you excited? I sure am.

Say something, damn it!

The pricks from Texas holdem are back flooding blogs with their drivel. I guess I will go ahead and upgrade the scripts one of these days.

In the mean time, keep your comments to yourself.
