    I usually ask them why they feel that way...... and just as they begin to answer, I raise my hands to my head, and say "would all of you just shut up for a minute, I'm trying to talk to this nice person, and I can't listen to everyone at once".
    That pretty much satisfies their curiosity.

    I suspect the people who've branded you "odd" have never once cracked open an SK work. So give 'em something to really talk about: be seen in public reading The 120 Days of Sodom, or The Perfumed Garden, or worst of all, O.J. Simpson's work If I Did It.

    One man's love for his family? (Pet Semetary)

    It is on your post for a certain amount of time. Once that time expires, you can no longer edit. Jordan explained it in another post somewhere.

    People that look at other people sideways on hearing the name Stephen King being a favourite author are often embarrassed I think to admit to actually 'liking' literature that delves in the darker side of human nature. I really do think that some people believe if someone likes to read about that stuff... then oh my goodness, how many steps away is that from wanting to try some of that?! Then again, some people are boring and just have no imagination.

    *Disclaimer: for all of you out there looking at me sideways now.... BOO!

    If people assume (ass outta u and me) King novels are "moral trash", that's their problem...not yours...

    I have a neighbor down the road, known her for over 20 years- ours kids grew up together. She constantly tells me I'll rot in hell for reading SK books. Have given up explaining, and now just smile and continue reading each new book published. She knows not what she is missing!!

    The Main Board now has an Edit feature, a button located to the left of the Reply | Reply With Quote buttons, which allows the person posting 30 minutes in which to edit their post before it becomes written in stone (or Deleted, if the post is naughty or otherwise breaks Board rules).
