Reading "Airport", 205th page. This book reads rapidly, good easy style, technical special terms aside. Add to it that sth. takes place everytime - disappearance, feuds, passengers angry at airport workers, smb. said sth., gossip, anxiety, impatience, people rush etc. It's cool & funny to read.

Droopy & Snoopy, respectively ugly & cute dogs, swapped places in cartoon history which brought havoc to either side.

At Halloween, Smiley posters should be disguised with smiley face masks. PS posters should be in green-brown costumes & each member imitates by mouth their favorite sounds. Easy, ain't it?

Finished reading "Aiport". 4.5/5. In 10 scale 8.
Reading Turgenev's "Fathers & Children" or what's the English title since school. 1stly must say I really like the book's fragrance. There's 2 types of book fragrance I like - sweet vanilla/sugar/smidgen of salt mix & vintage typewriter office paper/ modern book fragrance mix (can't describe it better). "Fathers..." is 1st fragrance. About characters - dislike everybody. We'll see if it changes but 120+ pages didn't depict anybody in the least bit interesting. The book's premise could be to few what they say "food for thought". But just like at school, it doesn't impress.

F. Rabelais "Gargantua & Pantagruel" - reading few pages. Eccentric. We'll see if it's good.

I read that many moons ago. It's hilarious at times but there's rather a lot of it. Grin
