it was amazing
bookshelves: permanent-top-ten, read-more-than-twice-through, often-given-away, required-reading, queer
Recommended to Jaina Bee by: KaosmiKitty
Recommended for: just about anyone, as long as they're up on their theology
Read 2 times. Last read August 8, 1994.

At last! A book that puts rubber gloves, Dr. Nut sodas, jelly donuts, Big Chief tablets, and Boethius squarely on the side of good (that of theology and geometry), while soundly berating Debbie Reynolds, Mark Twain, "Turkey in the Straw," bowling, and Scenicruisers— which are all obviously an abortion of good taste.

I don't exactly know where the exercise board fits in.
