Thanks, Cathy

Okay then...

You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?

The one printed on asbestos?

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

No.

The last book you bought is:

On the dining room table.

The last book you read:

Was pretty good.

What are you currently reading?

That question.

Five books you would take to a deserted island.

Why would I go to a deserted island? And if I got stuck on a deserted island by accident, how would I know to take the five books that would need to last me for the rest of my life?

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?

Him, him, and her. Because apparently I'm expected to.

I always wondered about that Desert Island line of questioning. Everyone knows that the thing to do when you get stuck on a desert island is find the Gilligan and kill him. Then you'll be safely off the island in two or three episodes.

Sorry, that should have been "deserted" island.

My head hurts when I think about answering those questions. But that could also be from being awake for the last 46 hours. Either way Im flattered you thought of me. Especially if they were bad thoughts.

Everyone has trouble with the Fahrenheit 451 question for some reason. It's not asking about what book you would be burned as. Instead, it's a reference to the living books at the end of the story, i.e., the people who commit books to their memory to preserve them for future generations.

"Everyone has trouble with the Fahrenheit 451 question for some reason."

John,

It's because we're making jokes. Maybe not well, but we're trying.

It's a little harder to do when you play it "straight" to the question. I guess if I tried, I would say something like I would be Deenie by Judy Blume, so I could masturbate all the time.
