I'm fairly certain that's how both the law and the internet work.

message 22: by Richard (new)

Richard but karen, we're all dying of curiosity out here to know what you thought of the book!

karen oh, i loved the book! this is probably by favorite roald dahl book intended for children - NO WAIT!!! i forgot about the bfg. that NO WAIT! shit - i forgot about james and the giant peach. okay, i would say this was tied with those as the best roald dahl book ever. (but i secretly like it less than those two) but much more than charlie and the chocolate factory. i am pretty sleepy right now - i do not know if i am making sense.

message 24: by Richard (new)

Richard It makes perfect sense... have a nice read, or a nice nap... or a nice peach dipped in chocolate...

message 25: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Good job, Rod! I love Michael J. Fox forever.

Look at this beauty:

message 26: by Rod (new)

Rod Who doesn't love Michael J. Fox? I know I do. He was first for a reason.

message 27: by mark (new)

mark monday was that really a Fassbinder reference up there?

Greg, you should really watch Fox and His Friends. that is a delightful & heartwarming film about friendship that i'm sure will like.

message 28: by Sarah (new)

Sarah I just unliked this review so I could like it, again.

karen awww, it's like it is still greg's birthday!

message 30: by Greg (new) - rated it 5 stars

Greg I think that I've seen that Fassbinder film. His films always do leave me with the warm fuzzy feelings one usually only associates with a romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon.

message 31: by Pooyan (new)

Pooyan happy birthday Greg...whenever!
who's Greg?1

karen greg is my bestie! we have adventures together!

message 33: by Greg (new) - rated it 5 stars

Greg i'm greg

karen hi greg!

message 35: by Jana (new)

Jana Aawww, so cute! I'm late. Happy belated birthday! Keep partying with your bestie (at least I hope that the bestie-thing is mutual)!

karen it had better be, or no presents for you, greg!

karen oh my god - here are more:

message 38: by Greg (new) - rated it 5 stars

Greg More great pictures!

message 39: by Jana (new)

Jana OMG, I have a higher risk of Diabetis now thanks to too much sweetness. I want to cuddle and snuggle them! I know they are for Greg, though, so I'll just glance at them covertly.

message 40: by Jana (new)

Jana And I have the urge to name the two in the first picture above Karen and Greg. :) Secretly, of course.

karen nooo!! we are not huggers!!! internet, stop trying to fix us up! however, if that is me in the back and i am trying to pickpocket him, that is all right.

message 42: by Jana (new)

Jana Yes, you are in the back, but you are restraining him, trying to keep him from getting into a fight! Look how focussed "Greg" is on some miscreant outside the picture's frame. I never try to fix people up. That never ends well. :)

karen "awwww, lemme at him!!"

"no, greg. it's not worth it...we are foxes, we should just go off and be awesome..."

message 44: by Ronyell (new)

Ronyell Awesome review Karen! Love all the fox pics!

karen i am starting to like foxes as much as greg does!

message 46: by Ronyell (new)

Ronyell Me too! :D

message 47: by Erica (new)

Erica Oh! I have a terrible thing to admit. So I was on my way to my friend's house - she lives three roads and one hill up from me - and I turned onto her road and was face to face with a fox. He had something enormous in his mouth. I wondered what he caught. I fumbled in my bag for a camera as he gave me the stink eye and slunk off. He had to get closer before he go get further and I saw that the thing in his mouth was a man's work glove, the leather kind. He slinked into the bushes just as I got my camera out and I missed the whole thing.
I am sorry.

karen that's all right! at least you have the story. and your life!

message 49: by Erica (new)

Erica Thank goodness for that. All of it.

message 50: by Laima (new)

Laima Will you be having a special aifaf on Sunday?
