Closing time: The sequel to Catch-22. Takes place in the 90's. Disappointing and a lot more confusing than the original. Does not have the same wit as Catch-22.

i don't get this thing with sequels, especially so many years after the original. i mean, if the story was properly tied up in the first book, why do you need to go revisit it? (the answer that pops to mind, of course, is 'to squeeze a bit more cash out of the concept'.)

Alas, this whole "Violet" bit is a little bit of culture that I am happy to say I know nothing about...


So, to the next important topic of conversation (in this concurrent thread)

Sorry, surfer, but you're wrong...

Here's a free clue:

"English" comes from "England."
Hence, check out an English dictionary.
Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.


There; that's my psuedo-good deed for the day...

Making you a pseudo dragon (as opposed to a micro dragon), for the time being.

I don't do egg-sitting. That's the missus' department.

It all started after a day when I baby-sat for the Tarrasque...

Yes, but if the wombat does lie down with the rutabega, doesn't that mean we'll have fruit salad until the sky turns into cabbage?

The dog wouldn't have worried me; we all eat Chinese food at some point.

No - it was trying to explain how Junior had gone off to eat the planet's entire population of dinosaurs in one evening.

Speaking of which - I'd highly recommend not touching those "dinosaur bones" and "fossils" that you see in museums. Ick!
