Annie's book is funny folks. I would say that it's 'sardonically irreverent' (name that movie) but it really isn't irreverent at all, just funny! The Pride and Prejudice chapter is one of my favorites. [Smile]

More props for Annie's book, folks. Narn's description is very accurate, and only the time it's taking me to fatten up my piggybank enough to get a copy without risking my plans for regular meals is holding me back from snagging a copy this very night. [Smile]

I don't know, I'm kind of disappointed. Here I was hoping for some real Annie-bitterness, cynicism and general coffee grounds of jaded observation.

Instead I get a beautifully written, humorous, self-aware and ultimately uplifting and thought-provoking post.

How dare you?

You should look at getting this published - in an anthology of some sort. I'm thinking Chicken Soup for the Soul but well written - does such a thing exist? Or maybe a literary magazine?

It really is great writing.

It appears I am a landmark killer.

I don't think this deserves to be on the third page, so *bump* it goes.
