    oh look, it's my precious Buttercup, Tamora, the Queen of the Goths.

    she works very hard at ignoring me . . . but she comes regardless, drawn by my irresistible pheromones rising through the thick cloud of Haagan Dasz and Godiva chocolates of her one bedroom apartment to penetrate her precious yet limited sensorium.

    I know it's hard to ignore me, I dont blame you.

    ... and here is the other one, clanking behind EC, like a long string of tin cans tied together.

    She too tries very hard at ignoring me.

    I don't blame you, these other guys in here are boring and I am irresistible.

    oh, how clever! My child mind never caught the play on words.

    But isn't this the coolest edition? It's the best novel. It represents many in here, going through life fighting their own windmills.
