You know all those Sasquatch photos where he's blurry? Turns out the pictures were right. He's really just a blurry animal! Makes him hard to spot in the woods. Adaptive camouflage. It all makes sense to me now.
Lol, a blurry animal, makes sense to me...omg if it makes sense to me...
I just finished reading Tess of the d'Urbervilles. I found it compelling. It's one of the few books I've stayed up until the wee hours of the night to read.
I wonder did you use the words "wee hours" and "compelling" before Tess? Just a thought...Not that there's anything wrong with that of course. Thomas Hardy is like a long warm bath.
Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey; I've read it at least 10 times and I'm reading it again. Many people will hate it because Abbey just says what he thinks without regard to others' feelings or political correctness. Others (like me) will love it for exactly the same reason
A six month resurrection thread!
Now that you mention it, I'd say I don't use those terms very often.
Return of the Native is a good novel until the final chapter. Just avoid using the word "wee" with warm bath.
the resurrection thread is on the religion forum; permanently locked
Thomas Hardy -- "a long warm bath?" I couldn't agree more. Don't know how many times I drifted off to sleep in college trying to read one of his assigned novels. I just know there are subtleties I must have been missing, because people I respect really like him. I guess I lack the "appreciation of Hardy" gene. (sigh)
I know... personally I couldn't stand Tess herself. And even though that was forty years or so ago I'm still not tempted for a new go from an other angle...as it were.
