The reason we lack a thread of that subject is that it’s impossible to read anything else while reading a web forum.

The thing I most recently read was a nutrition facts table on a bag of Que Pasa brand blue corn chips. Verdict: only 50mg of sodium. However, they’re not nearly as satisfying as blue corn chips by Garden of Eatin’, which happen to have just about the same abount of sodium.

Oh I love Garden of Eatin' Red Hot Blues....and also their black bean chili chips..that I have not been able to finde fo a long time....

I am currently not really reading anything. In my purse you will find my highly-coveted vintage book of George Orwell essays. I was reading "in the Little World" Which is all about midgets....but I got off track when I left it in my parents car for a week....

I am too busy working on SHFL to read at the moment....oh yeah..I was causally re-reading Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nihm...I think that one is also still in my purse.

I'm soon finished with Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. I thought I would have a little trouble reading it because I'm reading it in english, because that's not my native language and so reading books in english can be a bit tedious, but it was okay to read.

Its supposedly "deep" message is simply hateful and sexist and one of the main characters who is supposed to be admirable is a major b***h, yet Mr. Barker wants us to see this as a good thing.
I hate it, I think the moral of the story is crap, and I can't believe I'm wasting my time with it, but at the same time, Mr. Barker's prose and imaginative detail are keeping me turning the pages.


Yes, I found that very annoying too, the whole 'men are evil' theme, and the ending is just so conventional and predictable. But I liked some of the early bits and at the middle.
