Random thoughts, incl Guy Fawkes, Wintergirls & Neeko

Do we teach about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 in American schools? Should we?

Remember, remember the fifth of November,

The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

And there is the great speech from V Is For Vendetta. My favorite quote, "Words will always retain their power."

LOOK! I buried the lead! WINTERGIRLS made the Publisher’s Weekly Best Books of 2009 list!

And from the Misc. List, Bookavore has a great idea for how to get the books you really want.

And the Office Mouse sends us to this video, because even though I loathe baseball, I love Philadelphia, and the city needs some extra hugs today.

Any rap song that can work in a reference to "Benjamin Franklin, 1776" is a good thing.

  1. I think out of all the books I’ve read that came out this year, Wintergirls was my favorite. So glad you’re getting the recognition you deserve, especially when Twisted has been the focus of such conflict recently.

  2. Wintergirls

    hey! i just got done reading Wintergirls last night, pretty sure anyone who has been through or seen even a glimpse of anorexia will bawl their heads off…definitely seemed real life, great job ^_^
