    I listened to the first audio, we should all read it out loud and post. I wonder if Morrissey is reading his book right now for the audio book to be released in June.? Maybe he should splice your voice into it? I did giggle a bit when you paused before saying bulbous salutation...

    Of course not. There is no god or gods. Hence no.

    oh thankfully someone responded to this so that i could explain!

    no, no, no i did not do it for anyone else's view of me. mostly i just post stuff to amuse myself (though i do always like replies, good or bad) or on the off chance that morrissey might be reading (but now i suddenly hope very very much that he isnt :D).

    see, it's like this: for some reason the whole premise of reading from list of the lost with it's long incomprehensible sentences, whose tense im never quite sure of, combined with that quality i have of being a bit hard to swallow in large doses in general amped up to "how annoying can i possibly be?" struck me at the time i posted it as being endlessly amusing (the kind of thing you might do with a group of friends who like to make asses of themselves, rather than in a forum full of vaguely hostile strangers). but once the initial note of amusement wore off, and i was stuck at work, it suddenly struck me: "ugh, what was i thinking?!". and i came back and listened to it and again had to ask myself what i was thinking and what IS this nonsense i posted, only this time, at the sound of my nauseating unsubstantial voice--my friend once famously said that i sound like a "high strung 12 year old hopped up on a six pack of cokes and with a runny nose" :D-- my horrified cringing was like, ten times more intense. so i was embarrassed, but only of the fact that i made myself look sooooo uncool (and i really feel that is very very important that i assure you all that that is not the case at all, because i would just hate to disillusion anyone :p ) but not THAT embarrassed, because it is after all just the internet. and in any case im over it now!

    by the way, i love your signature! so cute!

    Thank you, so now that you know that it's not uncool, can you repost for those who have not heard.

    there, i dont know why must continue to stoop so low :p

    yesterday a friend at work said he was feeling dour, so i told him to read sex scenes from list of the lost. the logic being that nobody could possibly maitain a dour state when confronted by the term 'bulbous salutation'. i know that whenever im annoyed about anything i just think in my head 'bulbous salutation' and nearly explode into a paroxysm of giggles.

    all fun aside, i do find the paragraph from which i have chosen to (horrendously) read, to be an excellent piece of writing (even if the subject matter is a bit mah-tour for one such as i)

    I am not that brave but i am curious about what people sound like. Bennie, Brummie, Morrissey? I would like to hear Morrissey, but i am hoping he is reading the whole book for the audio book out in June. If anyone can imitate Morrissey's voice to would be a nice touch.
