My stupid life

Top 3

Prompted by a discussion introduced by Wanyas on Sunday, i present to you this question. What are your 3 favorite books? Books meaning fictional prose. Not the 3 that you think are well written and are outstanding pieces of literature, but the 3 that you loved reading the most. And perhaps even love re-reading. I mean, ofc, if your top 3 happen to also be fantastic pieces of literature, sure, but that isn't one of the criteria. It could even be some book you read as a child that you just love.

I had some trouble coming up with my 3. And i'm not really sure about the third one either. But as of right now, i think my list goes like this:

  1. Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert Heinlein
  2. Pride & Prejudice, Jane Austen
  3. A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving

While i loved A Prayer for Owen Meany, it was so sad that i'm not sure if i'd want to read it again.

Anyway, that's my list for now. Later, I might think of something else that i read that i might love more than any of these books.

Your turn.

Finger Lakes

BTW, this is the property we seriously considered buying.

And here's some pictures of the unholy rituals that go on up in the Finger Lakes:

Good 'ol Jersey

11 N.J. officials arrested on corruption

I'm surprised this even made the news. Politicians in Jersey are always getting arrested for corruption. Even my old CCD* teacher, Mr. Abate.

*Holy crap! CCD stands for "Confraternity of Christian Doctrine"! I never knew that. That's the craziest way to say "Sunday School except it's not on Sunday" that i've ever seen.
