I found the book on a shelf at a family friend's house when I was about 10. I read the first scene with the clown in the sewer and put it the f*&^ down, never to be reopened. Those few pages seared themselves in my brain and put me off sewers and clowns for good.
Tim Curry is still hot to me from Rocky Horror - I should probably not watch the movie, huh?
Read it as a 12 year old who at the time had a strange love of clowns (and unicorns on rainbows). Loved them so much I had a clown poster on my wall. At some point while laying in bed at night reading this book I realized the horrible error of my ways and took the poster down. Haven't really been comfortable with clowns since that book.
Additionally - Tim Curry as The Clown terrifies me, Tim Curry as Dr. Frank n Furter attracts me and Tim Curry as Darkness both attracts and terrifies me. I have very complicated feelings about that man.

@Mr. B They're just waiting. Biding their time. Your wisdom teeth may be TOO wise.

"I don't like Brooklyn because the buildings aren't tall and it reminds me of poor people."
Please, please stay in Manhattan.
I assume you've all seen the "Rebecca prequel" bit from That Mitchell and Webb Look, because seriously it continues to crack me up.
"Well, here we are at Manderley Hall!"
"Why Maxim, it's everything I hoped it would be! You know, we simply must hold the most wonderful party!"
"Why Maxim, whatever is it? Are you unhappy?"
"No, Rebecca, I was just wondering what my second wife is going to be like. I bet she'll want to ... hold a party, too."
Quiz Show! The best.movie.ever.
The Hudsucker Proxy. (I think this one is largely due to the Khachaturian-heavy soundtrack.)
So it's ... a year?
So between the Best Pic noms for Midnight In Paris, War Horse, The Help, and Extremely Aggghh and Incredible Bleccckkkk, what I'm hearing is it was a banner year for white people feeling good about themselves.
