Guess which of the following is an actual passage from the book:
“And so the lion falls in love with the lamb…” said the pretty vampire, who is actually 106 years old, and is scamming on me, a 17 year-old girl. “I watch you sleep from a tree in the woods every night – isn’t that neat?”
“I want to marry you,” was my reply. “I like the idea that you keep saying you want to kill me, and that you can smell me from across a room. It’s like I’m in that movie, Silence of the Lambs, but it’s all taking place in my bedroom, and you’re not in a cage.”
“I want to touch your face with my cold hands. I will do this for hours, and these hours will last for 50 pages. 50 pages of me touching your face. With my hands. For hours. They’re so cold…but your heart is warm.”
It’s either the first one or the second. There are only two choices.
So the whole American auto industry is collapsing, and as is the way of things, they’re crying for the government to bail them out.
The situation is grim: GM ended the third quarter with $20 billion in cash on hand; the company needs at least $12 billion a month for day-to-day operations.
How much of that 12B goes to the CEO salary? Four billion? Five?
I dunno – you know my position on this – if you’re business goes down, it goes down. That’s how things should work.
Let’s move this to a more personal angle. My sister is looking at her lease being up in February or something, and she’s not sure what to do, since “car leases” may not exist by then.
Since we’re twins and can read each others’ minds, I already know that she’d like another Mustang (Aw, Stang!), but she’d also like to get a big semi truck with a massive eagle on the hood shouting, “TOUGH TIRES!!!”
I asked her why, and this was her response.
I love the Killers! I’m so stupid! Hahahahahaaa!
If you’ve met my sister, then you know that I don’t want to know that you’ve met her, and she is indeed a fan of the Killers.
Where am I going with all this?
This is a short way of saying, “Cavs in first in the Central, likely for the duration. Let’s continue to call Joe Dumars a genius, though. He did build the Lasers to that one title.”
I do feel bad for AI, and I don’t understand how putting him in a system that is fracturnalized by being more than the sum of its parts works, since everything aboot his style of play is the opposite of that.
