Kindly do not use the state of girlhood as an offensive term. There are millions of girls who colour your life and you wouldn't know what to do without them.

My copy was printed in Burlington, Ontario, and shipped in a form-fitting corrugated cardboard box.
It took 10 days (from ordering it) to arrive, and arrived in pristine shape!

I never do because:
Girls from all over the world,
Love to write my name on the bathroom walls,of the Wiskey A Go-Go.
And those girls coloured me as much as I coloured them.

Read a women's restroom (bathroom) wall. How dareth thou you put terms on girls at a certain age.What next? Old lady jokes are forbiddin too? It's censorship I tell ya!

Q: What doesn't take aspirin from the shelves?
A: Dead Babies.

Q: Who can stay home alone while everyone goes out and parties?
A: Dead fuckin' babies!

Repeat using old people,people with pimples,boring people,strange people,ZappaFreak people.
Young or old,def or daf,sic or sicker,there's a joke about you or one that you'll laugh at!

Timing is everything.

Now taste is another story. :mrgreen:

Actually Caputh, I'm just about 30 pages in but I'm enjoying it so far. This marks my jump back into reading sci-fi with attention given to the year 1973.

Basic plot: (1973) A 21st century politician is transported to 19th century Switzerland where he encounters both Frankenstein and Mary Shelley.

Up next-
Crash-J.G. Ballard
Rendezvous With Rama- Arthur C. Clarke
Time Enough for Love- Robert Heinlein
Japan Sinks-Komatsu
Hiero's Journey-Lanier
Herovit's World-Malzberg
Protector-Niven
The Embedding-Ian Watson

I'm just about to start that one - I received it for an Xmas present.

And I just finished this one, which I re-read every December:

I've never read the last 5 pages of TRFZB.Somehow I want to keep him alive.If just a little bit.
I've tryed several times but somehow I just don't want to know how it ends.Isn't that silly? We all know how his life ended,but I don't want to know how his book ended.Dumb I know,but does anyone else do that sorta harmless stuff?
Am I wierd...yes.I'm trying not to be portly and I am not maroon.Am I daf? Well let me know what y'all think,if you want to.

The last two books I read I won't mention.They were the kind that end up in the fireplace.They are that horrible.The "Why did I read this crap?" kinda books.All fluff no meat.

Just finished The Late Shift by Bill Carter about the Leno/Letterman Late Night wars of the early '90's. I will start The War For Late Night tomorrow about the more recent Leno/Conan dustup also by Carter.

"The End" by Ian Kershaw. It's an interesting study of why the average German kept on supporting Hitler in 1944 -45 even though the war was pretty obviously lost.
It is, however, also amusing to open the book up and on the first page are written the words: "The End".
