10 Books That Continue to Affect Me and/or Stay With Me Over Time

10 Books That Continue to Affect Me and/or Stay With Me Over Time

I have been tapped to do the 10-favourite-books meme on Facebook by both Sven and Amber, but I can't follow rules, so I've expanded the meme to be a list of 10 books that continue to affect me and/or stay with me over time, and I'm posting this on my blog rather than on Facebook. What a rebel.

You will notice that none of the books on my list came out within the last 15 years. Literature seems to have dug its deepest hooks into me before the age of 25, and, if I am to be honest, my primary source of reading material these days is the internet.

Our Terrible Cat, Onion, Felled a Chicken. Again.

Dammit, Onion. I was going to eat that.

I had squeezed fresh lemon on that feta-stuffed chicken. I love fresh lemon. I love feta.

Although now that you've put your litterbox feet and claws all over it and dragged it across the hardwood, I'm just not as excited about eating it.

Have at it, my good man. I think you've proved that you're more keen on chicken than I am, anyway, especially since you raised your paw to fight me but then accidentally slapped me with the chicken breast you'd dug your claws into.

Cats: you can't live with 'em, but their parasitic mind control technique makes it seem like a good idea, even after they steal your supper.

5 Things to Which I Will Not Respond, Because I Simply Cannot

  1. Catcalls.
  2. Snark or cruelty delivered to me by strangers.
  3. Verbal or written abuse veiled as "criticism", "playing devil's advocate", or "just trying to define the terms".
  4. My brain's daily insistence that I should be smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol right now. Now? No. How about now? Nope. Surely, NOW must be a good time? NO.
  5. The fashion industry's Fall 2014 pressure to wear fun fur with mixed prints. Also, no. Nope. NO. I HAVE EYES TO TAKE CARE OF.
