Brought to you by the letter P

Quote of the Day: "I was gratified to be able to answer promptly. I said I don't know." Mark Twain

CD of the Day: radio

Mood: Upbeat

Date: 3/22/05

pretty prose produces profound pontifications,
(preferably pro prose),
possiby psychoanalytical;
perhaps painstakingly placating.

You can't alliterate with "pyschoanalytical".

I propose phallic proliferation.

pfft... preposterous.

Pontification precipitates posts. Problematic? Possibly. Perhaps preaching partial pandering pleases pontiffs. Perhaps pounding pink posies, pumelling purple poles pleases plenty pretty people purposefuly.

OK, you know how I mentioned having just read a Jane Austen novel in response to your last blog's opening quote? I think I recognize that Mark Twain quote from "Life on the Mississippi," which I finished only last week! This is too weird!

Let me just add that the very last book I read is "Prey," by Michael Crichton. Anything from Michael Crichton?

NYPinTA said...

"Anything from Michael Crichton?"

Possibly. LOL.
Ok, I am done with the P words. But isn't it also funny that you mention reading a book that also starts with P?
Well, I think so.
I read that book. Somehow, I think the movie will be better. *shrugs* But it was a fast read.

People pummeling pink posies probably prefer purple plunder. Argh. I give up.

mr. schprock said...

Yes, it was a very fast read. He and Ken Follett are good at that "clear prose" style of writing. Those books are always fun to read and then you forget them two weeks later. I hope they do a better treatment of "Prey" than they did of "Timeline."

Oops, I mean: possibly "Prey's" production passes previous picture?

completely OT, but how come everytime I visit here the song Bark at the Moon starts playing in my head?

NYPinTA said...

Cuz you are mad. ;P

"Oops, I mean: possibly "Prey's" production passes previous picture?"

"Cuz you are mad"

Hmmm... you know... I think you might be onto something...
