So I filled out my nerdy index card, gave the book a relatively lofty 7-plus rating and went to put it in my distinguished literary storage box (plastic recipe card holder). There, low and behold, was an index card for a Robert Parker novel I read back in 2003, also with a 7-plus rating! I love coincidence like that.
What I don’t love so much is the ol' memory that isn't what it used to be.
While I finish up Dean Koontz's amazing novel Breathless, here are some notes to consider:
** Suddenly, I don’t feel so bad … My Amazon bestseller made me nothing
** I kind of like this idea of a “bite me” coalition.
** A little creepy, a little funny, but mostly funny: Oakland University student booted over ‘Hot for Teacher’ essay is now suing.
Which reminds me of one of my favorite trivia questions you can use to stump your friends:
In 1984, Tipper Gore heard her 12-year-old daughter listening to a song that prompted her to found the Parents Music Resource Center advocating warning labels on records unsuitable for minors.
In 2006, that same singer performed a song for the hit animated penguin film “Happy Feet.”
Name the two songs and the singer.
Drum roll please ...
