reading with expression. . .

read this with expression, with gusto, if you will. with all your hearts. please. i did. i tried. and you have to read The Names too.

and? was it exuberant? was it? do you feel uplifted? do you feel a little bit sick in your mouth? do you feel a little bit dead?

well. she read it about 8 and half times - every word full of emotion from the bottom of her heart. although at times you could sense a background perplexity. like, what the fuck ? but she read bravely full of hope. right until the end. as i said, eight and a half times.

toodely oh best beloveds. bisous X.X.X. lashings of rockin' enid blyton ones. x j

Is it just me or did other people find that when the last three "YES YES YES's" were said with a huge amount of emotion I suddenly found myself in "When Harry Met Sally" which obviously isn't the idea. Sorry. Trust me to lower the tone. No boyfriend. Can you tell? Lx

You really have to wonder when kids look up to you with that W.T.F. expression. When even they wonder what is this shit i'm reading?
Perhaps you have dr.Seuss laying around instead.

glad you are home safe
it would have taken me 6 bottles of Xanax
to survive such beaurocratic , and totally African
How dull and safe it makes the US and England.
How I love safe and dull...
Brilliant writing as ever.

The book above does sound rather dire.
Read, Tim, read.
Up we go
go to bed
eat pie

Whay a thrilling book I could write with 3 letter words......
Happy new year
