Thanks for your respons !
Yeah what about compulsive addiction !?
Would ' thinking too much ' ( ' I can go on for hours with that drivel
inside my head, it is more or less the prettiest pastime I know ' ) says
Kit, a character in a book written by C. Palmen ( The friendship)) be-
come a pathomeme by and in itself !?
The little Kit is so good in ' thinking ' that talking, yet alone doing
something becomes problematic.
Are ' her ' memes in total control over her body, mind and soul !?
