    If you’re looking for immortality, Stephan, how about writing a book called Rats I Have Stomped On?

    Or a hundred uses for a dead rat.

    Pastis: “Oh common on, 24 cases of The Complete Cathy Collection? Still in the plastic? That’s gold, baby! That’s gold!”

    Hey, Stephan, want to borrow several of my cats? They’re excellent hunters – we’ve had no rodents in or around the house for many years. Lots of dead ones turned in to exchange for some tuna though…..LOL!

    I wish I’d been doing this with movies I’ve watched. Would have saved me a lot of time watching really bad ones that I’d seen before and didn’t recognize until two-thirds of the way through. (Heads up, Mark Hamill, I’m talking about Corvette Summer!)

    I used to do this, largely so I knew which books I’ve read, and to make some attempt to keep them straight. My memory of Dickens is a mishmash of horses on wallpaper, boy in attic asking for more porridge, Stella Havisham breaking David’s heart, the Dan Pegotty dying of spontaneous combustion, etc.

    You should see my neck of the woods right now… street after street, city after city…. all the stuff we saved in our basements that gave our lives “meaning,” soggy and smelly, out on the curb… it was like the heavens opened up and wept on Detroit the day that Robin passed.

    Toon Boy has a constant struggle with his alter ego.

    I do this with the wines I drink, so I’ll know which ones to drink more of.

    The same for me, I have a terrible memory for that kind of thing. I also kept a list for trips to the book store so I didn’t rebuy the same books. But part of the blame for that falls on the publishers for continuously changing covers.

    Pathetic, Cartoon-Boy! How can your cartoonish life be so devoid of meaning that you must resort to tricks to imagine some meaning? Rat is the devilish voice of your conscience saying “clean out that attic!”

    I use Good Reads to keep track of what I’ve read.
