I have that, it's on the list....

I think I should make an Ohio shelf.

Ah ha! Funny as per usual papa.

Shamus McCarty "Is every book set in Ohio?"

When you’re from Michigan, your Parents hate Ohio, your Grandparents hate Ohio, and I assume your Great Grandparents hate Ohio too. Why? I guess cuz of Toledo…
Anyways, I forgot my point. Ohio sucks… Cuz… I don’t know whatever…

Ha ha! But the Michiganders spend their $ in Ohio, at the Kalahari waterpark , and Cedar Point........so please hate us more!

That is a plus!

Gary I'm sorry for your loss of 6 hours but I do like it when you review a crappy book!

Thanks! It does make for fun reviews.

Miriam What's wrong with Toledo? I liked their art museum.

A lot of Jennifer Crusie's books are set in Ohio, although I don't know that she'd be your thing.

I've picked up this book several times but always put it back. Close call!

Shovelmonkey1 For a minute there I thought you were hating on Terry Pratchett. Then I realised it is a lesser book with a similar name... phew!!!

No I wouldn't hate on him. In fact I want to read Wyrd Sisters, even though the name causes me spasms.

Nothing wrong with Toledo, their art museum is top notch and their zoo is great as well. I recently went to the Detroit Art museum and they had a famous Van Gough self portrait and an amazing Diego Rivera mural (shout out the Michigan).

I'll check out the Jennifer Crusie books, just one look at my shelves and you can tell I'll read anything.

Just leave this stinker where it is, no need to waste your time. Who talks in Shakespeare quotes alone?

I guess Michigan and Ohio declaired war on eachother over Toledo 200 years ago and there's still bad blood about it w the old-timers.

message 19: by Miriam (new)

Miriam It was Etienne who was citing Toledo as the cause of Michigan anti-Ohioism... But you are pouring balm on the troubled waters of interstate relations. Aww.

I lived for years on the Indiana side of the Indiana-Michigan border and didn't really get why the states there were dissing each other.


message 20: by Miriam (new)

Miriam Thanks for the historical footnote, Etienne! I read about that conflict at a rest stop on Hwy 90 once, but had forgotten about it.

Stephanie Miriam wrote: "I lived for years on the Indiana side of the Indiana-Michigan border and didn't really get why the states there were dissing each other. ..."

It has everything to do with college sports. The big Ohio State vrs. Michigan rivalry. I personally never understood why people "hate" a specific state or city due to sports rivalry. I could give a poop.


message 22: by Miriam (new)

Miriam Oh, that I sort of get, even though I think it's dumb. I meant regular, non-collegiate Hoosiers making jokes about how Michiganders are stupid, or whatever, and vice versa. In Southern Indiana the jokes were about Kentucky.

Maybe we just don't have this sort of jokes where I'm from because California is so large and the other states are far away.


message 23: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie When I lived in California I noticed that other states really didn't exist to Californians......as if the world ended at the California border. It was odd.

They're just so far! The only one you can drive to in under a day is Nevada, and there's not a lot of reason to go there unless you want to gamble. I can get to Mexico more easily than Oregon.


message 26: by Shamus (new)

Shamus McCarty Now that I live in Texas everybody hates Oklahoma. I'm not sure why, but apparantly Oklahoma sucks pretty bad.

Yeah, I suppose California is huge enough to be it's own country.

Texas? Big enough to be it's own country as well. Where

Where is Texas? I live in the Dallas City limits. In the HOOOOOD! It's kinda scary, but it's cool if you like cars bumping bass all hours of the day.

I've been to Texas, Austin aside, I'm not a big fan.


Richard Reviles Censorship Always in All Ways I grew up in south Texas, on the Mexican border. I lived in Austin a long time.

Now I live in New York, which makes me very very very happy.

Austin should be airlifted out! I can understand that New York would be a better fit for you.

All I know about New York I learned from “Sex in The City” and “The King of New York”.
Apparently there’s non-stop gang wars, a serious drug epidemic, fantastic shopping, cute boys and horse-women.

And dropped on top of San Francisco. I would never leave an Austin with SFO's climate.

Yeah, pretty much. A surprisingly large percentage of the cute boys are for rent, too. *happy sigh*

Fucking LOVE that movie...


message 37: by Sarah (new)

Sarah My first thought after reading that one of the sister's names was Cordelia was also Cordelia Chase from Buffy, not whichever Shakespeare play has a Cordelia. Love that I'm not the only one to think that.

Nope.....That's because Buffy rocks and this book does not.
