Just what is it about this book?
on August 28, 2006
I keep deciding that the entire premise is just too silly, too overboard, and seriously, can't I find anything else better to do with my time than read this sort of thing?
Then I read yet another line that makes me practically swallow my tongue from laughing, and if a book can do that, what else do you need to know about it?
Mostly I'm just angry, very very angry, jealous, and full of rage and spite and envy and all of those other un-pirate-like feelings, because I didn't come up with this idea first and publish a book, so I can finally go back to my dad and say, "THIS is what I plan on doing with two degrees in English, and by the way, stop sending me those stupid internet chain letters." Even though, coming more than twenty years after the fact (of the degrees, that is, not the chain letters), I would think that he could probably have figured out under his own steam what I did, and did not, plan to do with two degrees in English.
Curse you, Gideon Defoe, with your nonsensical novels and your decades-old internet chain letters! I am perfectly capable of driving your pontoon boat without crashing it into a sandbar! And I am furthermore able to converse in the King's English while doing so! Good day to you!
