I won!

You remember I said that Book Roast was giving out prizes? Well, I entered one of their daily competitions and I've won a copy of the book Head Case by Dennis Cass. I'm so excited: I didn't think I'd be chosen.

The task each day is to read an excerpt from the chosen book and answer three questions. The questions (and my answers) for Head Case were:

1) Describe Dennis' feet in an inspirational haiku.

Dew on rose blossom
Shines, reflecting clear light on
Spider-hairy toes.

2) Continue the internal monologue, beginning with the line, "I'm astounded by how much you suck." Limit, 100 words.

"But hang on, who is this 'I' that is talking to this 'me'? If I'm thinking, who am I thinking to? And if I'm thinking then I must exist. Cogito ergo sum. Who said that? It was Descartes. Hey guys, I've just discovered that I'm Descartes."

3) Are Dennis' wits automatic or manual?

Tiptronic.

Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you because I'm excited and can hardly wait to read the book.

(By the way, sorry for clicking "enter" before the post was finished.)

Hey- I saw that and meant to pop over and say congrats - so I'm saying it now.

Congrats!!

That book does really look interesting - how about giving us a 'book report' when you finish reading?

I've read it. It's great. Funny and thoughtful. Have you seen Cass's You Tube video? I must have watched it ten times.

He is definitely awesome.

Thanks, Robin. I was hoping to do a brief review when I've read it.

Mapelba: No, I didn't know Cass had a YouTube video, I'll try and look at it. I'm glad you enjoyed the book, I'm looking forward to it.
