qotd, i haven't gotten to the sausages yet

"But she was smart. You could hear it in her voice, a slight tension, as in a coiled spring or a bent bow. I'm way ahead of you, it signified, but I'm too polite to leave you behind, so please think faster. It had always been something of a mixed blessing. It impressed college tutors and prospective employers at interviews, scared off boyfriends, infuriated her contemporaries at school and was completely wasted on her parents, who hadn't listened to a word she'd said since she was six."

-- Tom Holt, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Sausages.


It appears that the silver button is the big favorite. Once I get the necklet finished-finished, I'll post a picture.

Also, on a purely self-promotional note, would it be a good idea to offer myself up on Skype, for, like, book clubs and such? Any thoughts?


I think I have to read this book. First, pursuit of sausages, which I believe I've told you is a book I want to do. And I'm pretty sure my parents haven't listened to me since I asked my mother if she thought in spirals and she told me she didn't think.

Skype is really great. I use it to keep in touch with my nephew in Japan. I think it would be a good tool for you.
I didn't post on your tribute to Henry, which once I caught up with the posts and understood the story, I was so touched by it. I lost my son in an accident and I can empathize.

As one who has impressed professors and most certainly scared off potential boyfriends, I love the quote. Must find that book.

The book itself is a frothy fantasy novel in the style of, well, Tom Holt, who writes sorta like Douglas Adams but not quite as manic. If that make sense. As far as I can tell, there are no actual sausages. I have 25ish pages left tho. Maybe they turn up there.

And, Carol, I'm sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how awful that must have been. And still is.
