    I'm going to try really hard to be there Tuesday so I can the comparisons between the tawdry romance novel and the other novel :) I'll be out of town all weekend though and may have to end up going into work on Tuesday evening to make up for it.

    Since I am new, was wondering what should I bring tonight?

      If you want to bring wine or a snack to share that would be great. I look forward to meeting you tonight.

    I cannot be at the Sept meeting, but I am enjoying reading the Urban Hermit; well written and interesting.

    Keith, you may be right. Walden is killing me. In a toss up between the misadventures of a good-natured but self-loathing Scottish Calvinist, and the droning didacticism of an anarchistic, transcendental misanthrope, I'l take the one that makes me laugh... I'm sooo lazy. Also? I'm pretty sure Thoreau had Aspergers (g00gle agrees), but that is a discussion for another month!

      Self loathing and droning .... must be why current 25 year olds are into comedy, sex, and violence .....

    I got the Urban Hermit at the Woodridge Library. Check out your local library to see if you can get it.

    Dudette: I think that we are good with just discussing The Urban Hermit. I ordered the book, it is inexpensive as a used Amazon paperback. You havent tried this lifestyle, I trust. lol.

    Duuuude! Let's read them both. Compare and contrast, yo! (oh my. Perhaps it *was* a mistake to watch those 12 episodes of "Breaking Bad" back-to-back...)
