Pretty sure this is a sign of the apocalypse.
Hooray!!!! RBtT never fails to crack me up.
Yesterday I got a text from a guy I pseudo-dated informing me he was back with his ex-wife. Which is very nice for him and all that, but if I ever text him again it will start with "Hark, filth!"
In fact maybe every text I ever send anyone from now on will start like that. It kind of seems to clear the way for everything.
One of my longstanding personal commandments is "thou shalt not commit poetry."
And that professor can go shit in a hat, Sarah Miller, cause you are one of my favorite writers on the 'Pin.
And also, have you ever associated with actual poets? I have found the ratio of assholes to be far higher than in groups of regular people. I am instantly suspicious when someone cops to writing poetry.
That said, I admit to having been moved, on occasion, by a poem.
Jia, you are the best. That is all.
Pretty sure there's no way to embalm hot tea with milk and hot buttered toast, but that's what I'm having in the afterlife.
Oh and also what about Ursula LeGuin's "Annals of the Western Shore" series ( Gifts, Voices, Powers)? They're wonderful.
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose The only way this could be more perfect is if that was a corgi's head.
Nahoko Uehashi's Moribito series is amazing. Really popular in Japanese, and the first two volumes have been beautifully translated into English by Cathy Hirano. The protagonist is a female bodyguard-for-hire named Balsa, and it takes place in a mythical magic-real world with demons and dragons. Some of the cultural details are invented by the author, and others are Japanese. I really hope the rest of the books in the series get translated, I have Japanese friends who say they are all great.
Also recommend Terry Pratchett's Nation. The main character is a Pacific islander (sort of). And also his Tiffany Aching books (Wee Free Men, Wintersmith, I Shall Wear Midnight)!
@P.S. Please don't hate me I want to hug you through the Internets.
AAAAAAAAAAH! *muppet arms*
