Your Questions About Tim O’neill

Ken asks…

Research project English: Which author should I choose?

I like to read any good book of fiction except romance and war Which of these people are really good authors of my choice?
Here are the authors names to choose from:
Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Kate Chopin, Jack Kerouac, Nadine Gordimer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Edward Albee, Eugene O’Neill, August Wilson, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Tim O’Brien, Bernard Malamud, Jon Krakauer, Amy Tan, Franz Kafka, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Saul Bellow, Louise Eldrich, Gwendolyn Brooks, James Baldwin, Anton Chekhov, Zora Neale Hurston, James Joyce, Alice Munro, Frank O’Connor Stephen King, Julia Alvarez, Joyce Carol Oates, Octavia Butler, Michael Chabon, Bobbie Ann Mason, Anne McCaffrey, Annie Proulx, Anna Quindlen, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Russel Banks, Andrea Barrett, Orson Scott Card, Neil Gaiman

Timo answers:

Mm. I really like Orson Scott Card, Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Walker, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Anna Quindlen and, of course, Stephen King.

There are a lot of great writers on your list, and I have decision making issues. If you haven’t read any of them, I’d say at least take a look at their work. From there, choose the author who interests you most – or on a practical level, choose the author with the most information available that will be relevant to your research project.

Good luck!

Timo answers:

Great Gatsby and Of Mice and Men should fit the bill on both counts

Carol asks…

What is this oldie about?

Let me tell you the tale of a Sunday in May,
We were two points behind
Celtic with one game to play.

The tims had been crowing ” the title’s in the bag,
We’ve won the league again,
Fly the flag, fly the flag. ”

They would be taught a lesson they’ll always remember,
Don’t write off the Rangers,
We never surrender.

We descended on Leith on the 22nd of May,
The waiting was over,
It was judgement day.

With hope in our hearts,
And trannies in our hands,
We packed ourselves into the Easter Road stand.

The ref blew the whistle,
The action began,
A wave of excitement swept over the fans.

But half an hour in came the news we were dreading,
Sutton had scored,
For 2nd place we were heading.

Soon half-time arrived,
And the score remained zero,
We looked to the heavens,
And prayed for a hero.

The teams re-emerged,
And the second half started,
Not one of our loyal fans had departed.

Then all of a sudden –
A promising break,
Buffel to Novo who made no mistake.

1-0 to Rangers,
We were off the mark,
Our attentions now turned to events at Fir Park.

Celtic were coasting as the minutes ticked by,
They sang Championees,
And the Fields of Athenry.

But you and I know,
There was a sting in the tail,
For theirs is a club which is destined to fail.

Enter Scott MacDonald,
With an overhead kick,
Douglas is nowhere and Timmy is sick.

Their fans were despondant and looked to the skies,
But there was no solace there,
For their tear-stained eyes.

For a helicopter was approaching the ground,
But it sure wasn’t landing,
It was turning around.

Over on the touchline O’Neill lost the plot,
Astonishingly brilliant,
I think fcuking not!

Soon word reached Leith and the Rangers fans roared,
The players on the pitch,
Knew that Motherwell had scored.

They kept possession,
We awaited more news,
Tension gripped all of the red, white & blues.

Then two minutes later –
A heart-warming sound,
Another eruption at our end of the ground.

2-1 to Motherwell and it had to be him,
MacDonald again,
Not bad for a Tim.

The final whistle sounded and the copter arrived,
This time it was landing,
With the SPL prize.

Strangers hugged strangers,
Up and down the land,
As the words KEEP BELIEVING appeared in the stand

The singing began – “Cheer up Marty,
Come over to our place,
We’re having a party.”
And over at Ibrox,
Though minutes had passed,
A sea of red, white & blue had amassed.

Hundreds of bears lined Edmiston Drive,
The team bus arrived,
And the place came alive.

The party continued well into the night,
A reward for a season,
Of courage and fight.

And I urge fellow bears to take heed of this rhyme,
As we find ourselves now,
In more difficult times.

Protest if you must at the current regime,
But unite on a Saturday,
And get behind the team.

When you’re finding it hard to muster belief,
Think back to the day,
When the sun shone on Leith.

‘Cos like the moon landings and JFK,
We’ll always remember,
That Sunday in May.

The odds were against us but we won the race,
Let the others come after us,
We welcome the chase.

I just can’t put my finger on it?
All you fenyan rug sweepers can say is copy n paste lol? Do u think anyone makes up anything on here HAHA oh how gullable can one wankstain be lol?

A short list of former funny comedians. Time to hang up the spikes!
This new movie that Sandler has coming out with Jenifer Aniston. He flopped. Pre release reviews said he is not funny at all in this film and not the Adam Sandler from the past.

Also this is not a subjective issue. Either the comedian is funny or not, there is no middle of the road here, on who thinks who is still funny or not. The consenus of the masses say these comedians are not funny any more.

Timo answers:

I disagree. Most weren’t funny to start with, except the ones you say were never funny to start with. And I agree that they aren’t funny anymore.
