Showerthoughts on Books


ShowerthoughtsShowerthoughts is a loose term that applies to the types of thoughts you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering.

If history is written by the victors, imagine how much we are missing.

Books are actually tattoed trees.

There are no quotes by fictional characters, only quotes from writers given to fictional characters at the right moment for context and maximum effect.

Reading is just looking at a dead piece of wood for hours and hallucinating.

Not in the job description!

Roz Warren has been a public librarian for 15 years.  She recently posted the question “what’s the oddest thing a patron has ever asked you to do?” to fellow library workers.

 A patron who was on his way to the casino wanted to rub my red hair for good luck.
Asked if she could leave her kids at the circ desk with me while she ran errands.
A patron offered me $50 make her a fake passport.
A woman asked if she could trade pants with me because she was going on a job interview.
I was asked to ID the snake a patron had caught in a bucket.
A patron once phoned to find out how to become a porn actor in Paris.

SPAM, dead parrots, and lumberjacks

For the first time since 1982, the Pythons are performing together in London.  With a combined age of 360+, the 20 July show will be their last. The performance will be broadcast live at N’point Market cinema Sunday afternoon. Gilliam described the show as a "pre-posthumous memorial service, with all the dancing and joy that one would hope for at a funeral." Cleese, Palin, Jones, Gilliam, and Idle will continue with their own projects. Check the AFPLS catalogue for Python and individuals’ films, series, and books.
