okee doke





all-rightee. The shock-treatment therapy seems like it worked. My membership in the Taliban has been rejected, and I didn't win $200 million in the lottery.... so I came back to the blogs.....where low and behold I been tagged wit a couple of dem Meme thingees by Nunly and Libs..... and Libs hit me with a book-thingee which is easier, cause my life is a open book, the Oshkosh Police have booked me, my Ex threw the book at me...etc&so forth&such

So....
1. Name a few of your favorite books
"All the King's Men" - Robert Penn Warren. One of the tastiest reads ever. Three or four times is insufficient.
"A Confederacy of Dunces" - John Kennedy Toole. Funny on top of Funny wrapped in Ethos and topped with Pathos. Who needs ketchup when something is this funny.?
"Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Cookbook"- (ok. I am into the South right now. And sometimes books are meant to be devoured. Just Saying.

6. What genre do you dislike?
Self-help books. I tried to read one about masturbation and boy&howdy was that a mess!!!

2. Is there an author that you don't like, yet so many people seem to love?

Yeah, God! He really lost me with all the 'begats' and 'thou shalt nots'.

4. Where do you buy your books?

Buy? C'mon! Shoplift! I learned how to do it from a self-help book.

5. What genre do you read the most?
Fiction. Novels, short stories. Non-fiction. History. I am still very embroiled in reading about the Civil War. I can't wait to find out who wins!

7. Is there a book that changed your life?

I think it was 'Moby Dick' unabridged. My older brother whacked me in the face with it. Very hard. Black eye and two stitches.

8. Have you you ever met an author? What author would you like to meet?

I used to book guest speakers at the University. I got to meet Margaret Mead, Buckminster Fuller, P.J. O'Rourke and Ken Kesy. Ken was cool. I got very drunk with Ken Kesey. At the time he favored tequila.

9. Name a book to film adaptation that you really like.

I have two........
Miriam and...

Max.

They break me up daily. I'll try the Nunly next.

Hey, the Old Testament has plenty of sex and violence in it. Kinda like watching the Soprano's on HBO.

Nice to see you back! But I noticed that Randal was missing this morning. Hmmm....could it be that you two are one in the same like Santa Claus and Dad?

Stop making me laugh at work. I could get fired.

We're not the same, but if I could get okjimm to write my posts, I'd really appreciate the extra seven minutes of free time.
