A Hundred Thousand Javottes

I finished Les Miserables last night, and now I’m experiencing withdrawals.  I want somebody to discuss it with, but nobody has read it…and I’d recommend it to you all right now, but I know not one of you will listen to me and go and read it, because it’s so long and who has time for that and yada yada yada.  I know.  Just for the record, though…it’s an amazing book.

Anyway, to say good-bye, I’ve got just a few more closing quotes.  *tear*

p. 1342:  “’By the hundred thousand Javottes of the devil, those brigands assassinated him!’  ‘Who, monsieur?’  ‘Andre Chenier!’”

That one will only make sense to you if you read the book.  Not even the movie or the play would do it for you for this one.  But I can look back on it and laugh.

p. 1368:  “Everything can be parodied, even parody.”

And that’s it.  I miss it already.

I was born on 3/5/97 in this horrible small town in southern Virginia. Now I live in Jacksonville, Florida and I am here to tell you about my life--my friends, my family, love, school, work, extra-curriculars--minus specifics, of course. What I Do: I'm in school full-time getting my AA. I used to work part-time as the secretary for a small property management business; now I work in a university cafeteria, which is a major improvement! It's harder work, but the people make up for it. Things I Like: Harrison Ford, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Emmy Rossum, Shameless (US), Being Human (UK & US), The Walking Dead, Once Upon A Time, Superman, comic conventions, cosplay...I could go on. But I won't. Cast of Characters: - Mom and Dad: my parents - Sister/Psychobrat: my younger sister - Brother: my even younger brother - Cortney and Nicole: my best friends - Milo: the guy I love - Tinny: my work friend - Kristen: friend from school - Katie: friend from school - Jenna and Kara: sister friends - The Ex: Milo's evil ex

  1. I remembered so much about the sewer system that everything else turned to mush in my brain. It is a loose beast of a novel. Have you read Hugo’s The Man Who Laughs? One of the best ending lines ever. As moving, but with fewer characters and to my mind, more focus.
