Yes, shoes, socks, or not tell a lot, and everything in between.

New QoD, unless Brynn's great conversation starter wants more.

What does a hairstyle say?

Mostly on land, sometimes on sea and occasionally in the air.

New ?qotd?

Of the classic books you've read, which was your favorite?

The classic "books that I have read":

-ALL the zoobooks
-The Long, Dark Teatime of the soul
-ALL the books that are like zoobooks, but with planes
-Cat's Cradle

Oohhhh, like Bman, I can't pick just one.

Also like Bman, a Vonnegut is on my list, but it's Slaughterhouse Five, and the Douglas Adams for me is Hitchhiker's - a cliche perhaps, but I just love it so much.
And Catch-22, The Master and Margarita, and A Movable Feast.

From this list of classic books I like the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde the most.

It's hard to say, I'd have to read them all again.

From the list, maybe Bleak House. Certainly one of my favourite first pages of a book.

I am loving the Iliad at the moment
(the rendition by Alexander Pope)
maybe I haven't really actually gotten

through a classic unless the Bible counts
somewhere near the first of the iliad it states
that first the dogs will become ill
and after that... the humans
i wonder if the smartest people*
knew better than to actually think
illness meant someone had cast
a spell
on you....

*way back when

I hope to find out things I don't know. My Mom was a librarian and died on June 6 at almost 91 and she said, "Only read the best books because there isn't time to read them all."

Yeah I think I need to take some of that advice. Reading keeps me human in some way, or maybe that was the first form of being human I knew, so it feels natural to go back to it, even though, you know, you can't read Philip JosÚ Farmer by torchlight anymore.
