I blog about old books at thebamboobookcase.blogspot.com.
I will forever love the scene in Anastasia Krupnik where she visits her father's poetry class and he's teaching this poem: "I find it fascinating, Wilder, that you have selected 'futility of life' to be the theme of the work of, so far, Pope, Gray, Cowper, Blake, and Burns. Now Wordsworth, too?"
@cuminafterall Pied Beauty and Spring and All! I love both of those poems, especially to read right now as spring is finally getting here. Also William Carlos Williams' Love Song.
@queenofbithynia "Lady, shall I lie in your lap?" "No, my lord." "I mean, my phillips-head upon your lap?"
@Queen of Pickles Wait, what thermos is that?!
@olivebee My husband and I do the same thing: the rings go off as soon as we step in the house. We do it for comfort reasons too. Sometimes we forget to put them on before leaving and then people think we're getting divorced or something, so it does have its downside! I'm not going to stop, though.
@sydwi I would love to see The Blue Castle done as a web series, with Valancy at her webcam making snarky comments about her family!
@Lu2 Cats should be kissed on the top of the head, as I learned from Emily of New Moon. "Don't ever let me see you kissing a cat again!" "Oh, all right, I'll only kiss her when you don't see me after this."
@fondue with cheddar I know, I'm sorry too, but it is nice to have some company! My birthday is in June. There is absolutely no chance that I will get everything together and become wildly successful by then.
@fondue with cheddar Me too, and I'm also about to turn 39. You're not the only one who still doesn't have it figured out!

"I was a door and she was a door,
In this complex by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love,
I and my Apartment D."
