Okay, I'm feeling at least somewhat better. But I can't say exactly why at the moment. Maybe tomorrow. And maybe if you're on my friends list. You might find out. If I'm feeling generous, that is.

In the meantime, a bandwagon quiz! A bit late, but it's the thought that counts.

2 all-time favorite books

1. (what, only two? What kinda fucked-up priorities are these?? Ray Bradbury was right, goddamn it...) um... Edgar Allan Poe, The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe (maybe it's my latent Gothiness coming out, but the man could write. And he was funnier than fuck too--which is something your stick-up-the-ass high school English teachers would never tell you...)
2. Paul Fussell, Wartime: Culture and Understanding in the Second World War. The Recent Unpleasantness in Iraq shows us just how deeply we have forgotten the lessons of WW2--or, more precisely, how Stephen Ambrose and the sentimentalist fuckers were able to hijack these lessons to their own ends. This book sets the record straight. This will be the only overtly political statement in this entry.

1 item you never leave home without
