I'm just done reading Choke, another novel from Chuck Palahniuk and there's this one quote, on the second last page of the book that somehow stands out a little more than the rest.

"We can spend out lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can just decide for ourselves. And maybe it's our job to invent something better."
- Choke, Chuck Palahniuk

Yeah, maybe it is our job to invent something better. It's about time.

And off I go to do another two sets of forty.
