Splash du Jour: Friday

When you read a book as a child, it becomes a part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does.
-- Meg Ryan -- (from the movie You've Got Mail)

Have a great Friday!

That's an interesting thought. I have never seen that movie.

How long does "being a child" last, i.e. how many years do I have left to read the good stuff?

Nicole, it's a great movie and Meg is so so so so mega-cute as Kathleen Kelly, who works in a BOOKSTORE!

Merisi, in most ways, [other than physically] we can be a child forever. I am trying hard to achieve this. And when it comes to reading, always remember what the great C.S. Lewis said:
"No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond."

As soon as I read this quote, I got chills! Cippy, 'You've Got Mail' is one of my all-time FAVOURITE movies. I have the dvd, and have driven Guy insane, playing it over and over again. So many wonderful quotes in that film:

"A hot dog is singing! You need quiet while a hot dog is singing?"

"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address"

"I like Patricia. I *love* Patricia. Patricia makes COFFEE nervous"

And yes, Meg is mega-cute in the film.
