Literaryglam fills the void with creamy goodness
I tried to have a Gravity's Rainbow reading group with Gabe that one summer. I even made us a schedule and bought the Gravity's Rainbow Companion. Gabe gave up after page 50. LOSER! But I persevered, and it was some sweet action, I assure you. Later I lent my copy to a student who wanted to be my friend. I said, "If you read this book, then we can be friends." Needless to say, we are not friends and I still haven't gotten my book back. AMATEURS!
And it just so happens, as I stare down at my chest, that I'm wearing my "I AM THOMAS PYNCHON" shirt right now. I just returned from a night at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, where Dickens and Dr Johnson used to drink. The place burned down in 1666, but was promptly rebuilt in 1667.
1. You know I always like a challenge. Mr. Pynchon, if anything, can be construed as a challenge. I'm really curious about that book. Really, really curious and tad intimidated (but I like that in a book and, um, lots of other things).2. You are SO CUTE with your Pynhcon self!! I'm totally envious of your drinking digs. That's all I can say. Alcohol where Dickens and co. got wasted? I'd drink heavily to that although I'm afraid I'd pee my pants (maybe I should reconsider that 'drinking heavily' part).
