Not sure why you're saying that.. @my Send a noteboard - 05/07/2010 08:16:05 PM
Excuse me for being a bitch, but are there any non-literary snobs on this site?


In fact, to be rather blunt, as I seem to be being more and more often these days, who the fuck are you to toss about cavalierly such expressions of a philistine nature? I've taught English lit as well as US/World History and over 10 years later, Milton's poem is still one of the most moving tales of temptation and loss that I have ever read.

So maybe you should just shut the hell up and try and understand where each person comes from rather than just shooting off at the mouth? After all, some of the best genre lit is heavily influenced by several of the books/poems/stories mentioned above.

Doubtless, you have a gravelly voice that would make the dogs howl in dismay.


I rarely drink, and I have never smoked. I live a pretty decent life actually. But YOU. You have hidden for YEARS behind your passive aggressive posts.

I'll say this, at least this wasn't pussified passive aggression. It's nice to actually see the real you come out.
