Joef, we should delete this blog

Wednesday, October 19, 2005


Hey Karen, isn't it funny how we never post on this anymore? What should we do about that? Just throwing it out there that I'm too lazy to attempt to update two blogs while at school. So no one expect Wings anytime soon.

Don't Call It A Comeback

Well, after much death and dismay from the staff of Wing Night, and also the pure laziness and stupidity of yours truly, perhaps its time to ressurrect this blog before I go on vacation and once again neglect it to the point of extinction. I propose a new ideal for the posting though...screw the every Thursday format. Lets just post whenever we all feel like it (which in this case was never, but I hope we can post more). Anyway, whats been up with everyone? We got rooommates and everyone is getting ready to ship out for the last time....kind of crazy to think that Rockland will be behind us soon. I got a new computer and love it. There isn't much else to say, except someone give us all something to talk about and we will. And not just on Thursdays. Hopefully.

No, it's not Thursday, but......

I'm bored and thought up a topic, about which I will post sometime soon.

Where does everyone want to live in the future, ie) once out of college?

Say Book Five Times Fast.

Books are a lovely thing when they actually interest you. I use to read every book on my bookshelf when I was younger, I use to like the book of poems called "It's inside my sisters lunch". Sometimes I think some of my strangeness comes from those poems. Anyway here goes my list of book stuff.

I love the Phantom Tollbooth. By far one of the best books I've ever read, and an all time favorite. I also liked Also the Harry Potter series for some reason makes me so happy. I laugh, I cry (a little), I learn. No I don't learn. I also very much enjoy the Da Vinci Code, but for some reason never got through Angels and Demons. Recently I havn't read much due to general schneiders stronghold on our reading but I loved Catch 22 and thought it was hyterical. Good stuff.
I want to read this Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Safron Foer) book. I heard that Jen thinks I need to read it, then Karen likes it? Looks like a good deal to me. Very excited about that.
For school I read Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison and I really enjoyed it. It was a violent, sometimes difficult to follow book but I, for some reason, found the story to be very interesting and very comprehenzive about the struggles of a young african american male to be educated in a rough time period (50's to 60'sish, not sure exactly). Long read, but good.
To comment on some comments, I also loved a Wrinkle in Time. I like that kind of genre I think, I use to read ahead in that book in seventh grade. Good stuff, as Speight would say. I also like the book Redwall by Brian Jacques. Thats like an epic hero novel, but its about a mouse. I don't know, its a little odd, but I really enjoyed it. There were a whole bunch of other novels in the series but that one in particular really was awesome, I thought.
Of course, my favorite book of 11th grade was The Great Gatsby. Everyone from Johnsy remembers my facination with that story. I also stole my favorite quote from a book from that novel:

No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.

So to sum it up, I've read lots of good books, and I'm sure there are more out there. Good topic Karen, we all wrote a diesel amount this week. I hate listing favorites though, because I always feel like I missed something.
Favorite book(s) EVER: The Outsiders, Wonder, Stiff, Why Girls Are Weird
Favorite book that you had to read in highschool: Hmm. Well, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius was summer reading. I also liked Dubliners a lot this year, since I like short stories that appeal to the senses. (Funny how that's the one book Schneid didn't teach on his own. I'm so bitter.)
Favorite book you had to read in ALL of your schooling. A Wrinkle in Time, The Outsiders.
Book that you actually wished you HAD read (either it wasn't assigned or you did Sparknotes, or the like): Catch-22 (I read most of it but didn't finish). Also, I feel guilty now for not reading much of what Johnsmeyer assigned because I do the same for Schneid and I don't think she deserves the same treatment as him.
Book that you've reread the most: The Outsiders, Why Girls are Weird, The Witch's Handbook (Which I took out of my library soooo many times when I was younger, but I never had the sense to buy. It got me through a lot of nerdy summers.)
and anything else that anyone feels like answering: I like nonfiction better than fiction, go figure. I especially like funny or generally well-written essays and "words about words" type stuff (i.e. Writing on linguistics, the entemology, grammar, slang, etc). Right now I'm reading Me Talk Pretty One Day, by David Sedaris, and I'm slightly disappointed, but I've only read the first few essays, so maybe there are better ones.

P.S. I took the liberty of fixing your fonts, Karen. :-D
