it was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Happy 200th birthday Charles Dickens!

Thank you for giving me A Christmas Carol and for scaring the bejeezus out of me every year with that eery face knocker thing. 

I'm also really fond of Great Expectations. A Tale of Two Cities wasn't my favorite, but it did make for a great post title this morning.

Oh, and thank you for truly understanding how literature can be both entertaining and socially rebellious. You were so important even Google noticed.
