I Love You This Much

I don't know... that looks so oddly capitilized. Is it? Maybe I should just do, "I love you this much". Eh. Whatever.

Alright so my friends seem to have an obsession with Google Talking me when I'm not even in Pennsylvania. Yesterday I was in Connecticut. Today I'm in New York. Not the city. Just the state.

I wrote a really long post but it's on a laptop and I'll post it on Monday. Or later tonight when I get home.

But this is how much I love you. I'm blogging from a different state. And if I went to a different country I'd blog from there, too. And if I went to the moon, well, I'd have trouble getting internet access. But you get the idea.

I think "she-who-walks-in-pudding" is Maeve. Because she's very random, and refers to a male, probably Jeff. Ah, youth.

**NEW CONTEST** I'm making a new contest (obviously). I bolded that for the lazy bums who don't read my whole posts. Anyway it's called "The Hitchiker's Guide to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". You send in a maximum of three quotes from the book, up to 42 sentences all together. Then I'll post them all, rated from best to worst. I'm also picking one, but it won't be in the standings. I just want to see if someone picks it. You can either email it to me or you can comment it on THIS POST ONLY. The winner will be announced whenever I feel like it; probably like a week.

Also, in my profile my favorite book is, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy 'Trilogy'". Only two other people have this in their profile. Some random person and Jeff and Maeve. How curious.

Okay I'm done now.

Ha! I was alluded to twice in this post! Here's my entries, as they are some of my favorite parts in the book:
In no particular order:
1) "On top of the cliffs stood a reception committee.
"It consisted in large part of the engineers and researchers who had built the Heart of Gold - mostly humanoid, but here and there were a few reptiloid atomineers, two or three green sylphlike maximegalaticians, an octopodic physucturalist, and a Hooloovoo (a Hooloovoo is a superintelligent shade of the color blue). All except the Hooloovoo were resplendent in their multicolored ceremnoial lab coats; the Hooloovoo had been temporarily refracted into a free-standing prism for the occasion."
2) "Curiosly enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Ohno, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now."
3) "Because Ford never learned to say his original name, his father eventualy died of shame, which is still a terminal disease in some parts of the Galaxy. The other kids at school nicknamed him Ix, which in the language of Betelgeuse Five translates as "boy who is not able staisfatorily to explain what a Hrung is, nor why it should choose to collapse on Betelgeuse Seven."

Guess... and no, this IS NOT Frances said...

Mr Prosser said: "You were quite entitled to make any suggestions or protests at the appropriate time you know."

"Appropriate time?" hooted Arthur. "Appropriate time? The first I knew about it was when a workman arrived at my home yesterday. I asked him if he'd come to clean the windows and he said no he'd come to demolish the house. He didn't tell me straight away of course. Oh no. First he wiped a couple of windows and charged me a fiver. Then he told me."

"But Mr Dent, the plans have been available in the local planning office for the last nine month."

"Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them had you? I mean like actually telling anybody or anything."

"But the plans were on display ..."

"On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them."

"That's the display department."

"With a torch."

"Ah, well the lights had probably gone."

"So had the stairs."

"But look, you found the notice didn't you?"

"Yes," said Arthur, "yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard."
