Morbidness & A Caress of Twilight

March 29th, 2002 - 12:36 p.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

I had a morbid thought last night when I was walking home. If I dropped dead tomorrow, would anyone I talk to regularly or even semi-regularly on the internet care? And even if they cared, how would they find out that I'd left this mortal plane? I definately have people I talk to whom I consider to be very good friends of mine and I would hate for them to exert possibly much time and effort trying to find out what had happened to me. Well. Enough about that.

Casbah (n. KAZ-bah or KAHZ-bah)

1 : a North African castle or fortress

2 : the native section of a North African city

In Northern Africa, a traveler can follow a winding road high into the Atlas Mountains, into the Land of 1,000 Casbahs where the "towers of small fortified villages cling to the hillsides" (Joan McIver in the [Fort Lauderdale] _Sun-Sentinel_, February 6, 2000). These are the Casbahs whose Arabic dialect name (qasbah, meaning fortress) gave us our English word and its variant Kasbah. The other Casbah, the old section of a city with its teeming marketplace, is the one in the hackneyed phrase "Come with me to the Casbah" (or its variant Take me to the Casbah). Though the expression may well have originated in connection with the 1938 movie _Algiers_, it was never actually spoken by French actor Charles Boyer in that film.

On a less morbid note, I spent maybe four hours in the bookstore last night reading A Caress of Twilight by Laurell K. Hamilton. It was pretty decent. I should go back and read the one before that because there were references to the first book that I didn't remember. The ending was kind of annoying though...but there'll definately have to be another book about Meredith. Sometimes I really hate it when books don't feel finished by the time the book ends. It bothers me. There should be a note of accomplishment and finality about a novel, even if there's going to be another one following it.
