so, what's new with you today? happy sunday.
this thread is les misÃ©rables failure.
I LOVED that book. It was weird because I knew absolutely nothing about the story line until I read it
surrender is a awesome book!
I love bread.
I love rock n roll
Put another dime in the jukebox, bb
the gluten free movement is really just about over-protective, needy parents, isn't it?
i LOVED rock and roll. it was weird because i knew absolutely nothing about what it sounded like until i heard it.
The bread hate is out of control.
and what's with this peanut allergy bullshit? when i was in elementary school an junior high everyone brought peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch an the school even offered peanut butter sandwiches every day as an alternative to school lunch. there were like 200 sandwiches already made at the end of the lunch line every day and no one died or went into anaphylactic shock or nothing.
nowadays you can't have a peanut within 1 mile of anywhere some weirdo kid with a alleged peanut allergy is breathing.
Most of the time you have an idea about story lines before you read a book or watch a movie
Or I do, anyway
i usually do, too. oddly enough, it's usually when i don't have that idea before i read it that i find the books i like best.
Me too. That way you don't have Great Expectations
Poor Pip. I was rooting for him but there were just way too many obstacles for him to overcome.
And it's only in North America. People on other continents don't know anything about this allergy. For sure, though. If I burp after eating peanut butter, easily 25% of my ninth graders will go into anaphylactic shock.
That book pissed me off.....Pip goes through all that shit, and he's not an asshole, but he still gets fucked in the end and that supposed to be some morality tale?! Great Disappointment, IMHO.
Dinkus, please make us a video demonstrating the syncing you spoke of.....I have never, most likely never will, seen the play....
Very good question.
it's such a made up thing. let me guess...they all have asperger's or adhd, too? bunch of fucking munchaussen by proxy parents.
I agree. And I read that while vacationing on a beach in Miami. Total fucking bummer.
What a fucking miserable life that little guy led. After reading Great Expectations, I completely understood what people meant when they describe conditions under which children currently live as Dickensonian or Dickensen. And Oliver Twist? These are not happy-go-lucky-kinda books.
Well at least Oliver Twist kinda had a happy ending. Better than GE anyway. I like Dickens for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the way he took on the conservative monied power elite of his day and portrayed what stupid assholes most of them were....seems kinda timely, even now, eh? If Ebenezer Scrooge were real and alive today, he'd be a top GOP player!
