- Fizzy Thoughts: Lucky #37

Lucky #37

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for...

Right? You have been waiting anxiously just for this post. Right??

Anyways. This week's winner of a book of her choice is she of the most awesomest vocabulary ever. I'm sure you'll all agree that chartroose has a certain way with words. This was her winning comment (in response to my thanking her for reminding me of the word asshat, which I then used to describe Philip the Handsome):

You're welcome! Asshat IS marvelous, isn't it? I've been feeling quite potterish (filled with adolescent angst) lately. I made that one up today. Do you think it will do?

Yes, I do think it will do. In fact, it would have worked well in my Oscar Wao review. I'd re-write it, but that would involve too much work.

So congratulations to the potterish chartroose. Hopefully, she can manage to get a message through indicating her choice of book (our blogs don't play well together).

By the way, this is the asshat:

Hooray, thank you! I want the one about small town Alaska because I've been feeling awfully close to Sarah Palin lately. Oh, and I'm pretty sure I saw Russia from my house the other day too.

It's called "If You Lived Here I'd Know You Were Russian."

If you don't want to give me that one, you can send "The Geographer's Library" and I'll gift it to Sarah Palin. She needs to be schooled.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
