Booking Through Thursday: Endings

What are your favourite final sentences from books? Is there a book that you liked specially because of its last sentence? Or a book, perhaps that you didn’t like but still remember simply because of the last line?

Like I said last week, I have a terrible time remembering actual lines from books. Yes, even if it’s the last line.

The Thursday Threesome: Terms of Use

Onesome: Terms– of endearment: do you have any you particularly like to use? How about one others use that just grates on you?

I don’t use terms of endearment for anyone. I’m not that kind of person. As for other people using them–I guess it doesn’t matter so much if it comes from a woman because it sounds sincere. If a man is addressing somebody else with an endearment, I can just ignore it. If it’s directed at me, I always have the urge to pummel his face.

Twosome: of– the several types of access to the Internet, which one do you use? Dialup, DSL, Broadband, WiFi? Just how connected are you?

Dialup and WiFi. At the moment, I have no inclination to throw money at the other types.

Threesome: Use–less labels: seen any good ones lately? You know, the ones that were issued by the Department of Redundancy Department. …or maybe by the Darwin Awards Review Committee. I’m thinking this crowd probably has some real winners…

I haven’t seen any labels lately, but I do recall redundant phrases that people cite as examples of pleonasms like “fatal murder” or “advanced planning”.
