Good grief. If I remember correctly, Kama is the lovely person on the beach or else near the water with the great legs. Ralphie vowed to kill her for her naturally lithe physique too.
And you say you've never been kissed? Are you in a cult or something? Perhaps you've got appalling halitosis? That is ke-razy, Kama. Were I flush at the moment, I might be tempted to take steps to follow TomD's example, but I ain't, and I don't know you at all, so dang
That said, great post Siblings...can't live with `em, can't shoot `em (well, in most states.) Even though my sister and I get along great, and I can always count on her for a laff
I only came back to Hatrack in August, so I missed this thread until just now. Great thread Kama--I loved reading about your life.
I noticed that one of the authors you mentioned loving was Stanislaw Lem. Lem's work is amazing, isn't it? I've read most of it in translation. Have you by any chance read The Cyberiad (English title--not sure what the Polish title would be) in both original Polish and in English (specifically Michael Kandel's translation)? I doubt that you would have bothered with the English language version, but if you happen to have, I'd love to know what you think of the translation. Given the amount of word play in that collection, Kandel must either be an amazingly gifted translator or a great author in his own right who took great liberties with the story.
Well, I figured it was a long shot, but I've always been curious so I thought I'd ask. If you ever happen to read both, let me know what you think.

Actually I have strong Polish connections, my Grandmother and Grandfather came from an area that is either in Poland or in the Ukraine, depending on who conquered whom last. One of my greatest friends is from Poland, though he's been in the US since he was five.
