Otter never really tried to read Wallace, in fact.

I find him easier to listen to via audio books. The beauty of his prose and sentences comes through.

Otters have a lot of fun in the water, so it probably doesn't read.

How do you find this stuff?

No...wait, I should ask, how do you find TIME to find this stuff?

Saint Croix said...

Actually, this corgi thinks you're doing just fine. Because screw those other guys. "Keep up the great work," says this corgi, "I'm proud of you!"

Dogs are awesome. Get a dog, Althouse!

leslyn said...

Awwww. You read my email!

leslyn said...

(That was Dobby the Chihuahua mix speaking. She especially liked the corgi too.)

Penny said...

Queen Elizabeth knew just what she was doing... breeding all those Corgis.

Ann Althouse said...

How did I find that? Just going to one thing and noting those other links in the margin.

Astro said...

That's why I have a Corgi.
No pigeons, there, huh? No doubt plotting in secrecy, while trying to avoid those reactionary zebras.

That was so good that I am still laughing and crying.

Maybe some people do get reincarnated into animals. I remembere several of those animals from when they were in human bodies.

I need some more corgis @32 and less cats @ 33 these days.

Penny said...

Big lick and a tail wag for tradguy!

Penny said...

Not a corgi, but sure was fun pretending.

Feeling better, tg?

Deborah said, "Fox paws and lady parts. This is a very poetic thread."

She didn't say it here, but she did say it!

Either one political post up or one political post down, not sure which anymore.

Penny said...

Sure hope deborah doesn't mind that I quoted her here instead of there?

Yeah, it's out of context now, but?

She WAS talking about animals, and so were we!

David said...

It's a shaggy dog story!

The Corgi made it all better.

Penny said...

You betcha!

Penny said...

Know who else said that?

"You betcha!"

Ha ha Groucho Marx, for cripes sake.

"You betcha life".

Craig said...

My otter wants me to finish Anathem and Reamde.

Patrick said...

This Honey Badger doesn't give a shit.

lemondog said...

Think they might have been disappointed in us ?

Rusty said...

This human thinks the human that thought that shit was cute should be beaten with a 2x4.

Petunia said...

Indignant starfish wonders why you got home so late last night.

Lem said...

I didn't finish Infinite Jest.

I impulsively bought it after reading about his death here.

and imperceptibly stopped reading it around page 100? cant remember exactly.

The Otter would be more disappointed to know I've never given a damn about Wallace or any of his books.
