Do you feel like you've been caught in a time-wrap, Idamus? You must have spent too much time with those Vikings... ;-) So much, that meanwhile Don and Ricky-Joe happened. :-D

Well done! :-)

34844 I'm having so much fun listening to everyone's comfort music. :-)

And Alison, I can't remember when I've heard Toto's Africa the last time! Thank you for the nostalgic moment that made me smile. I love when a smile is described as lopsided and I believe my smile was very much like that while listening to Africa and watching the video. ;-)

That's my comfort music. Especially their Christmas songs. And also Julie London and Doris Day.

Oh, and Santa Lucia. :-)

But why is the guy on the book cover dark-haired?!"

That's Don with the food free Van Dyke."


Food free Van Dyke is always a big plus.

Can't seem to stop thinking about J.X. for some reason... ;-)

I ordered that one a while ago, b..."

To tell you the truth we probably do have more than enough blankets as it is. But that's NOTHING compared the amount of pillows we have. Hubby has this (life-)mission of trying to find THE PERFECT pillow. Well, he hasn't so far and if I didn't buy such a huge amount of books (and blankets!) his pillow hoarding tendencies would annoy me to no end. But nowadays I'm just watching with growing amusement whenever he has that sparkling pillow-hunting-glee in his eyes... :-)

I wholeheartedly agree. And Susinok, your list was so lovely to read.

Well, Book 2 -[bookcover:Message of Love|2147204..."

Oh, thank you, Reggie. I didn't even know there was book 2...
34844 I keep imagining a brand new group member hopping in the discussion right now...

And I feel like I need to apologize. :-D
34844 Josh wrote: "COAL MINER'S SON!

My greatest and most angsty and coal-dusty work!!!"

Oh. I feel really bad not remembering that, Josh. That was one of the very first books I read from you. I totally loved it. Because of its angst. And because it was so dirty dusty.

Oh LOL!!! :-D

By the way, I blame Varecia for all this goofing around. She started it! And as always I mostly blame Josh... :-)
