You’re Catch-22!
by Joseph Heller
Incredibly witty and funny, you have a taste for irony in all that you
see. It seems that life has put you in perpetually untenable situations, and your sense
of humor is all that gets you through them. These experiences have also made you an

And realize that at least you believe in ferries.

    Well that was a frakkin' waste of time! Thanks!

    NM, you burst into song? Messy.

    FM, you don't believe in ferries?

    Apparently I am "A Prayer for Owen Meany". Which is pretty gorram shiny because it is my absolute favourite book ever!

    Good for you. I've heard good things but never read it.

    I was all excited because I was Watership Down. Then I told my husband and we had to have this big metaphysical discussion because, of course, no one can actually be a book.

    Well Ann, no one can be a book. But you can embody the qualities of the book, and purely for ease of language use we can say you are that book.
