C3A Turning Japanese?

This chapter made my head spin a bit, there was alot going on!

We learned more about Maureen and her 'army brat' past. I loved how Lady Sally figured out she could speak Japanese, I was very confused about why she was saying anything in Japanese.

The pun Maureen made by responding to the Japanese speech with "High" just hit me now..."Hai" is yes in Japanese. I like little jokes like that, makes me chuckle.

Bridges

I celebrated Canada Day twice and Independence Day once.

One of the things I always notice during the Yank's celebration is the positive vibes the Canadians send across the way. There are fireworks on both sides and it strikes me as a nice way to keep the connection between what is essentially, cousins on different paths; keeping the bridges that connect us alive.

Write a little each day

Well, I don't have any specific inspiration today, nor will I actually add an entry each day. I have two other blogs to keep going, so a couple times a month may be about right for me.

whatever : a poem

To be or not to be:

Whatever!

Spaceships made of garbage
Bought and paid for by
Slaves at the apple factory
Flying around a huge lump of rock
In the middle of nowhere.

Whatever!

That's progress for you
Flying cars never materialized
From the deep dark recesses
Of 1950s B movies
To take us to the palaces of scantily clad virgins
With Ray guns.

Whatever!

C3K: Final Exam - Tough Love.

Ah, this was a fitting finale to the first act. We have learned much about Sally's House in these short three chapters.

I do start wondering if this Mary is indeed the same Mary I read about many, many moons ago in Callahan's Secret. There are certainly some other familiar faces in the crowd. Mostly, I look forward to more puns. God blesses bad puns.

C2K The House - Just Desserts?

After reading this chapter, I wonder if the Callahan books were partly responsible for my core eclectic nature, or if my core eclectic nature allowed me to truly enjoy these tales...

C2A Not even Self contempt.

This chapter give some more insight into the main character. I had no idea she was so young, I was imagining a woman in her 30's! Also gives some more insight into her background, her daddy issues and issues with love.

I loved the tour Maureen took of the House, it was very thrilling to imagine. Very inner-eye visually appealing.

Lady Sally sounds like a proper lady, she can be kind and gentle but can also kick your butt on a moments notice. I'd love to know her story.

C1K The Lady - Manners!

I had almost forgotten how much I like Spider Robinson's prose. He turns a phrase well and the scene becomes clear in my mind. I even find the weirdness believable and very, very settling.

[spoiler]...if people wanted to walk their werebeagles here it was none of my affair.[/spoiler] was my first audible guffaw. It's a sudden turn like this that creates a unique charm to Robinson's characters.

C1A The man in the buttcheek apron

We started reading Callahan's lady tonight and I gotta say the first chapter just whet my appetite for the book. I had a hard time putting it down.

It was really action-filled and quite humorous. I got a kick out of the 'were-beagle' and laughed quite thoroughly at the balding man in the apron and harness.

One of my favourite lines from the chapter was from that same character, he said '.....please don't tell Mistress Cynthia please don't or she *won't* punish me tonight!' It made me giggle profusely.
