Pickles to Pittsburgh

1) MY VOICE IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And yes, Donal, I really missed talking; that was why the last blog post was so long.

2) The Red Wings are in the Stanley Cup playoffs and they're playing Pittsburgh. The Wings can win and the Penguins can go eat pickles. (Pickles to Pittsburgh is also the name of a(n awful) sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.)

3) I need a job. Badly.

4) Greg finished reading The Ultimate Guide to Femininity. He said it was good. But he does not understand why women love it because (in his opinion) it makes fun of women.

5) I still need a job. Maybe I'll go write Sense and Sensibility and Zombies.

Glad to hear that your voice is back :)

I believe I also noted that Austen seems very unkind to her sex in that book, and that was one of the questions I raised regarding its lasting popularity. The only answer I came up with is that perhaps all women think of themselves as Lizzy, their best friend as Jane, and everyone they dislike as the rest of the book's female characters. nobody likes to think that they're the one being made fun of.
