Hup Two Three Four, Keep It Up Two Three Four

"I meant what I said, and I said what I meant...

an elephant's faithful--one hundred percent!" Theodore Seuss Greisel

I really am trying to finish The Inheritance of Loss but was waylaid this past week by the aroma of popcorn, cotton candy, and hayburners. I spent some rainy days amidst sequins and freaks. I shall get back on track in good time, for this show must go on.

Water for Elephants--The gritty glamour of the circus world in all of its ragged edges, hardness, and heart; where the value of life is measured by performance.

Quintessential Sentence(s)--"The whole thing's an illusion, Jacob," he says, "and there's nothing wrong with that. It's what people want from us. It's what they expect."

"...why the hell shouldn't I run away with the circus?"

Favorite Word--roustabout


  1. I have been looking at this book for weeks, and could not decide to buy it or not, would you say yes?

  2. I would say yes. Better yet if you can borrow it. Want me to mail it to you?? AnnieH
