"Take the Marquis de Sade as an example." "Of what?" "Of someone with a refined literary sensibility who wouldn't have hesitated to shit on someone else's carpet."

Odd start, but interesting. And I now know all sorts of archaic Afrikaans terms for death. Examples: Doodaf ("tired unto death"), doodmoor ("murder, torture, or strain to death"), doodgaanskaap ("Sheep dying from causes other than slaughtering"), doodgegooi ("very much in love; literally thrown dead"), doodgooier ("heavy dumpling, or inscrutable argument"), etc.

Hahaha, poor cat. Did s/he make you read it?


Jacob No, the cat was just an innocent bystander.


Daniel Happy Done with that Darn Book Day.

Not as much as I'd like to be. Took me ten days to slog through this. The last fifty pages were a chore. Meh. The next book will be better.


Jacob ...
