These two books are sitting right next to each other in my bag.

1) "So she was all, "whatever, ho," which is what I like about her-Lily is tres noir.

2) "How would I know, I've never been married."
____________________________________________________________

1. "You Suck"

2. "Lamb"
Both books by some guy named Christopher Moore.

Anybody ever heard of him?

p.s. Yes, I always have a CM book within arms reach. This time I just happened to have both of these books still in my bag from the signing. It just so happens that my bag was right next to me when I read this topic.

As a general guide it is considered favorable for your affair(s) if you were riding or sitting on the donkey, unless it balked, threw you off, or otherwise gave you a hard time, in which case that's exactly what you can expect.

Putting sentences 4 & 5 for continuity:

"... We've been pushing the frontiers of time forward for trillions upon trillions of years, & in a little over 4 days we'll have reached the . . . End of Time."

"And that's bad, right?"

"They helped her find a place to live, enrolled her in excercise and self-actualization courses, taught her to defend herself, nurture herself, and most important, to respect herself."

At the risk of being accused of sucking up to the author and the ridicule of the Boardello, I reluctantly reveal this passage to be the 5th sentence on page 123 of Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore. It was the closest book, honest! I just started read it for the 4th time. The only other book within reach, and located right next to PD on the side away from me is:

"Although more accustomed to giving orders, Luc did as he was bid."

I'm not sucking up either, it's the copy I got signed for a friend's b'day-
guess I need to get it to him as soon as I can-
after I get some much needed sleep...
