Cool. I love the surrealists. I'll check him out.
And, yeah, I love FG. One of my favorite shows. It's great if you're into senseless, tasteless humor. And sometimes these forums need a bit of kookiness.
Hey, Kiki, what painting/picture is that that you use as your avatar?
Life's stupid. The more money we make, the less time for amusement and also for sleeping (which is also very amusing ) I wouldn't say you're a really bad friend... at least you post a greeting after someone else has done it first, so it seems you may get going after a bit of a push
Very Welcome! I've been very busy lately with the reshaping of my life, which seems to be a trade that takes up a huge amount of time
I think one of your forum friends should have started a birthday thread for you, but it seems the habit is far from being fed Call me weird if you must, but I strongly resent it when a so-called friend is not aware of a birthday. I think it's inconsiderate at the very least, but that's just me, so I thought I would at least post a personal greeting here. Not that I greet everyone on occasion of a birthday, but I feel I must when it's someone with whom I've had some interaction... of course my procedures are far from becoming a trend
I hope you had a nice birthday kiki!
Oh it's much better than the Hugh Grant one. It is in three/four parts and definitely worth watching, the first episode in particular is good I thought. Ha, yes I'm afraid two late nights on the trot have not been good for my energy levels, have to have an earlier night tonight and no beer perhaps, but don't tell anyone that as it would ruin my reputation!
Oh my lord. Just watched the first episode of the BBC Sense and Sensibility, wow. Yes I've seen it before and I enjoyed it then, but I didn't realise just how much I enjoyed it. I had a dream about that cottage on the cliff in Devon. I can't wait for the second episode tomorrow. I'm tempted to put the second one on but it is already 12 and I have work in the morning. Damn. How do you rate it? I'm guessing you have seen it?
It's definitely going to be a long haul but I reckon very much worth it, like you say.
Thanks again for the info and help. It has now been ordered!
Hello kiki, thanks for your message!
I've been reading about translations in the Victor Hugo author page and noticed you'd read it in the original so your recommendation is even more valuable. Wilbour definitely sounds like the one I'm going to order. I have no choice but to read a translation so it's important for me to read one as close to the author's tone and style as possible. I'll let you know my thoughts when I've finished it - with the length of it I don't think that'll be very soon! I've noticed you have good taste in novels though
