    I've just got this book....

    Post by SlakeMoth on Sun Jun 03, 2012 6:13 am

    It's called 'Crazy Sh*t Old People Say'. I got it 'cos I'm an old person. Here's a sample:

    'The schools today are too soft. Our school was so tough it had it's own coroner.' and

    'We couldn't afford shoes, so we went barefoot. In the winter we had to wrap our feet with barbed wire for traction'. and

    'We didn't have horses. We had to sew two ponies together'

    Go figure.....

    Hopefully you're getting a kick out of some hyperbole which can be fun.

    Because I've got a sense of humour.

    It's strictly a book that you dip into now & again if you feel like you need cheering up. I read a lot of novels, mostly sci-fi by people like Iain Banks, China Mieville, Dan Simmons et al and a lot of contemporary fiction by people like Haruki Murakami because I've always read a lot. In fact, next to my games consoles and my lap top, my Kindle is the piece of kit I use the most.

    So yes, this book isn't high minded, it's just a collection of quips (some cheap and some which are frankly down right rude) and it wont change your life but hey, sometimes life gets too serious right?

    Oh, by the way, I'm not referring to a certain poster on here in that last remark.
