You know that reading a book would require me to read don't you. That is very unAmerican. How dare you ask me to even consider a book. It does look interesting though, maybe I'll wait for the movie.

ummmmhhhhh this is like a long time to not know what Zoning Goddess is reading. I know you're reading, I just don't know what. How am i supposed to go about my day, attending to the affairs of my life without knowing what you are reading?!?!?? I know you finished your book and started again because it takes you like three days to read 6000 pages, so what gives? Ok, I see. Now you're just toying with me, not saying what you're reading. Is it good? I can't see the cover...just come on! Tell me! Tell me! What are you READING!?!??!??!!!! I'll find your book and burn it if you don't tell me!!! Never mind, I don't care. I couldn't care less what you're reading..OK that's a lie, what are you reading!?!? I'm going to start typing gibberish all over this thread if you don't tell me. It'll be your fault. I can't be blamed. It's on you. Gibberish on your hands, ZG. Fine. Gibberish it is. I'll bring the gibberish, Oh, I can bring it baby. Bringin on the gibberish. What do you mean I already started? That's just unnecessary roughness. Are you reading a sports book? Is that why your silence on the matter is so aggressive? Silence can so be aggressive. Watch. Feel that? Uh huh that's what I'm saying. See? Aggressive, silent, gibberish.





please tell me what you're reading.....

Yup.....

Eloquent as usual ursus.....:lmao:

So far it is great.....when I actually get a chance to sit down and read.....:r:

Also, the attacks on the book are straight out of the right wing play book.....first paragraph actually. They make me smile because I know they are worried about inequality. :D

Oh I'm a boob! I didn't realize this was it's own thread. Giving accidental legitimacy to my gibberish rant. :-$:lmao:
