"There is no getting used to pain and suffering. You become only hard-boiled, and you lose a certain capacity to be impressed by feelings. Yet no human being will ever become used to sufferings to such an extent that his heart will cease to cry out that eternal prayer for all human beings: "I hope that my liberator comes!" He is the master of the world, he who can makes his coins out of the hope of slaves."

"Even that heavenly, that highly praised, that greatest sea-story writer of all time knew how to write well only about brave skippers, dishonored lords, unearthly gentlemen of the sea, and of the ports, the islands, and the sea coasts; but the crew is always cowardly, always near mutiny, lazy, rotten, stinking, without any higher ideals or fine ambitions." jules verne? whoever wrote mutiny on the bounty?

Rod The page numbering is different on your edition, but I would guesstimate about 20 more pages or so.

Maureen thanks! i'm just about start chapter 32. i just really hate furnace talk -- in fact one of my favourite stories about the viccisitudes of being an adult relates to being with an old group of friends once, and the husband of the couple whose place we were in proposed to the men "hey, wanna go see the new furnace?" and me, overhearing, exclaimed "are you kidding? who wants to see a furnace? it's a tank with a light." but all the men went down, and the women stayed in the kitcen and talked about cookware they never used.

so you see, i hate furnace talk. :P

Dan ok, so no furnace talk, fart talk, or belching of your name. Anything else? :)

Maureen i can't think of any off the top of my head, but undoubtedly there's got to be more. but really, i don't think it's too much to ask. i have endured enough of all the above to last a lifetime. my old (and beloved) roommate had one fatal flaw. the name-burping. i still haven't gotten over it. sometimes she would burp spell it. i can't think which was worse.

Rod Flaw?

Maureen i really don't like having my name burped. it is not as charming as you might think. :)

Maureen (dan is sticking it to me, because while i can be quite frank about many subjects and behaviours, i become very uncomfortable around others, and fart talk and name-burping rank high. oh! i also freak out if people clip their nails on the subway. :)

Maureen p.s. patrick can you please come over and help me make brownies? i miss thee, and i baked better with you. :)

message 11: by Slowrabbit (new)

Slowrabbit brownies sound delicious. but now what i really want to do is sneak into Toronto and quietly sit across from you on the subway and start trimming my beard or nose hair plucking :-)
