Cool Harryisms

Quoted from Summer Knight

Quote:
She’d just been toying with me in my office, and I’d fallen for it. I wanted to kick myself. Somewhere out there was a village I’d deprived of its idiot.

--------------------------------------------------------------

You are, I take it, Harry Dresden?”

“If I’m not, he’s going to be upset with me when he catches me running around in his underpants.”

Now on to Death Masks!

Cool 1 session, as well as another Harryism

...hmm, well, at least lately, I've not read anything in a single session! Honeydos seem to always get in the way!

Another Harryism quoted from Summer Knight:
Quote:
As I pulled into the parking lot, I reflected that odds were that not a lot of clandestine meetings involving mystical assassination, theft of arcane power, and the balance of power in the realms of the supernatural had taken place in a Wal-Mart Super Center. But then again, maybe they had. Hell, for all I knew, the Mole Men used the changing rooms as a place to discuss plans for world domination with the Psychic Jellyfish from Planet X and the Disembodied Brains-in-a-Jar from the Klaatuu Nebula. I know I wouldn’t have looked for them there.

Cool The Dresden Files Snippit

I'm gonna' call these 'Dresden Files Snippits' when I post them from now on. These are from Death Masks!

Quote:
...a woman’s voice said, “Hello?”

This was my nightmare. “Oh. Uh, hello, Charity. It’s Harry Dresden.”

“Hi!” the voice said brightly. “This isn’t Charity though.”

So maybe it wasn’t my nightmare. It was my nightmare’s oldest daughter. “Molly?” I asked. “Wow, you sound all grown-up now.”

She laughed. “Yeah, the breast fairy came to visit and everything.
Quote:
“Mister Dresden,” he said. “And Miss Rodriguez, I believe. I didn’t realize you were an art collector.”

“I am the foremost collector of velvet Elvii in the city of Chicago,” I said at once.

“Elvii?” Marcone inquired.

“The plural could be Elvises, I guess,” I said. “But if I say that too often, I start muttering to myself and calling things ‘my precious,’ so I usually go with the Latin plural.”

Cool Dresden Files Snippit (from Blood Rites)

Quote:


“Christ, Dresden! You almost got me killed!”

“Don’t be a baby. You’re fine.”

Thomas frowned at me. “You at least could have told me!”

“I did tell you,” I said. “I told you at Mac’s that I’d give you a ride home, but that I had to run an errand first.”

Thomas scowled. “An errand is getting a tank of gas or picking up a carton of milk or something. It is not getting chased by flying purple pyromaniac gorillas hurling incendiary poo.”

Summer knight didn't really do it for me. Perhaps it will be better after a reread.... Death Masks I did enjoy very much.

Another Harryism quoted from Summer Knight:

1 effort takes planning - wife in bed watching recorded tv - have few hours
(she watches series, catches up several episodes)
2 on long ride - boat, plane, train, bus - not car usually
3 be sure no flying apes in operation zone!

I very much enjoy each and every one of the series books each time I read them and notice things I hadn't noticed before.

“Who the hell are you?” he growled.

“I the hell am Harry,” I said.

He pulled out his own gym bag and slammed the car door closed. “You always a wiseass?”

“No. Sometimes I’m asleep.”

“Wow. You are very tall.”

“I’m actually a midget. The haircut makes me look taller.”

The virtual wall I lurk behind.

Please keep the snippets coming. They are whetting my appetite to start the series again. This time without interruption since my friend returned Changes to me.
