It's very, very good - highly recommended. There's a movie, but I haven't seen that.

*thhhbbb* I would have linked to your page, but I am at work, and I don't like to take up my employer's time.... screw it, I can't complete that sentence with a straight face.

Memoirs of a Geisha is one of my favourite books ever - one of those books where every minute you can snatch to read another paragraph is precious. I have heard mixed reviews of the movie, though - apparently they toned down the traditional geisha makeup and hair so as not to alienate audiences, and it just doesn't look right. And don't get me started on the fact that the lead roles are played by Chinese women....

So is there nothing you won't read, or don't you know how to cross out either? I think I found the code to underline. Oh, and I of course will credit Chris. Because that is the kind and caring person I am. And also? I read her comment, lol.

Just remember Carrie, I never claimed I wasn't lazy! I don't know how to cross out, but there's not much I wouldn't try and read - my tastes are pretty eclectic!

I have been known to read fishing magazines and/or cleaning labels, depending on the (slim) pickings available.

It turns out that crossing out is done by enclosing the text between "strike" & "/strike" in the little less than/more than bracket thingies.

Oh, excellent way to trick blogger, Carrie! I'll have to remember that. :)
