“Why is being a nerd bad? Saying I notice you’re a nerd is like saying, ‘Hey, I notice that you’d rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you’d rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Linsey Lohan. Why is that?”
John Green

Terry Pratchett, Hogfather

Ilyn Ross Hi James,

How are you? Thank you for being my friend. I wish you all the best for 2009 and always.

Please visit these groups when you have a chance: Happy & Brainy Group, To the Glory of Man, Reason Reigns, and Goodreads Tea Party. Have a marvelous weekend. Warmest regards.


Christopher Hoare Hi James:
With interests in role-playing, Science Fiction, and military theory you should look at retrofuturism. I find it a good platform on which to explore what-ifs.

Christopher Hoare.


Rosemary Thanks for the invite. Happy reading!
