Carlos, when I come for a visit, we should probably talk about the sanity of your hygiene. Or the OCD; whichever.

Having a sister approximately the age of the relevant target audience of those books, I've seen them before; there are, of course, worse. Yes, really; lesbian cocaine vegas hot tub would not have been something I'd imagined occured in teen lit, but, well, there's a first time for everything.

Also, y'all are getting hit by the iLead thing again.

I've noticed that you can get away with soooooooooo much more in a book than you can on a tv or a movie. At a guess I'd say this is because the financial investment in a book is so much less combined with a different demographic.

I'd say this is because barely anybody reads anymore.

You've stumped me. I'm sure this deserves a comment, but I'm at a loss. Do you know who the mom is?

Luke

Pregnant, Carlos? Tsch.

I should think that when the chesthugger pops out, I can reliably nominate Noel to be the one in the air duct with the flame-thrower. I'll set things for autodestruct, of course. Or grenades; basically, I want Noel in charge of the operation once you've given 'birth' Carlos.

I did not, do not, will not, understand teenage girls. I commend those who do.

This makes me nervous as my niece is leaving her tween years and entering teenage-hood in May. All told I wish she was still 4 years old. We had more in common then.

And once again Carlos anticipates the hot topic of the day:
