Thank you, Stephen.

I've seen The Princess Bride several times--it was a cult favorite at my
college--as well as having read the original book (which is slightly more
perverse, but not nearly as much so as William Goldman's other book I've
read, _Boys and Girls Together_--yeeeeeek). It is indeed a good example
of playing with cultural expectations placed on stories, as well as a damn
good show.

I've not read _Name of the Rose_ yet, but I've read Umberto Eco's
_Foucault's Pendulum_....only once, though. I think it requires a couple
readings, and I haven't gotten back to it yet.

I dunno whether I'll get around to reviewing Princess Bride anytime soon,
as I'm kinda busy newly reinventing my life. My magickal studies and
intent introspection (which is probably redundant) have brought me an
opportunity I can't possibly refuse if I have any sense of what's good for
me, so I'm about to quit my job and move to a new city for the first time,
sometime in the next couple of months, soonest if I can manage it. I'm
scared silly (barely contained maniacal grin).

Oh, and thanks for all your help, alla you. Even XYZ.
