The invention of a Tuomas is "useful" to those who would place themselves 'closer to Tuomas than thee' for a variety of reasons

Tuomas had a history of heart trouble. In 1992, he was hospitalized for three days following an irregular heartbeat, and in 1999, his situation deteriorated rapidly. After undergoing dental surgery in that year, he lost 50 pounds, was in great pain and seemed unable to recover from the stress. On October 12, 1999, Tuomas died at age 63 in Bel-Air. I whistled for a cab and when it came near, the license plate said 'Fresh' and there was dice in the mirror! If anything I could say that this cab was weir', but yo home, man, forget it, I'm off to Bel Air!!

Disappointed but Well-Liked, December 31, 2005
A Kid's Review
I-reading all of Judy Blume's books-was rather disappointed with Then Again, Maybe I Wont. Maybe it's because I am a girl and it's coming from a boy's point of veiw...I really am not sure...but it other than that it was good. Some parts were unrealistic. Why would a fifth(going in to sixth) grader(the narrator and main charecter) watch a girl get undressed from his window??? Once again, maybe I don't understand the thrill...it just seems like something an older boy[maybe eighth grader) would do......anyways NOT recommended to anyone under the age of 12-the book talks about some mature things...

Delicate sentimentality, June 2, 2001
By Casey Ahn - See all my reviews
Judy Blume's wonderful book should not be missed by any child about to enter the turbulent years of adolescence. When I first read this book as a fifth-grader, it mean little to me beyond the facially charming stories. As I travelled down the sometimes-painful corridors of pubescence, it became a constant companion that helped me through the ever-increasing trials. I, too, had an "older sister" that was the subject of my ocular ministrations. This book is real, in a way that I truly needed at that critical time. I hope everyone derives as much benefit from it as I have. Even now, I think back on those few crucial passages with visible delight. Many's the time . . .

jhøshea, Wednesday, 30 May 2007 20:51 (eleven years ago) Permalink

The one detail I remember from that book is that the dad got rich from inventing those adapters that turn two-pronged outlets into grounded three-prong outlets.

i remember my 3rd grade class was discussing authors we liked w/our teacher and someone mentioned judy bloom and our teacher was all well i think the superfudge books are great but the rest are a little too adult for you kids. so naturally i was like oh i gotta check these out.

best photoshop comedy jokes hilarity ever on ilx? (the louvin bros records, esp. the "tragic thongs" one). and i say that as long-time lurker, first time poster. (uh, not really, but i just wanted to use that variation on the radio talk show call-in cliche).

at any rate Tuomas' existence is surely justified by that. a fitting tribute to the man. or anyone, for that matter.

I'm still here, but at the moment I'm working and trying to write my thesis, so I haven't had the time to contribute that much. Basically when my time is limited I mostly just post to fun, topical threads (such as those on I Love Comics, or the "90s hot" thread) that don't require long and complex posts, and keep away from the bigger, more serious discussions that would take too much time. If all goes as planned I'll be finishing my thesis by May, I should be less busy then.

If you stick around long enough you'll realize two things--

1. Lots of people on ILX are somewhat grating.
2. It's generally frowned upon to call people out for being grating.

Best of luck!
