Some sweet things going on in the world of words today, aside from my successful completion of William S. Burroughs’s novel, Junky. & to my loyal, literate readers out there, I submit the following request: What’s next on my list of addiction-lit? Where can I find a quality piece of fiction or memoir about being hooked? &, for the love of god & all that is holy, does anyone know where I can find one written by a woman? My next literary fix depends on you, dear readers. Don’t make me bang down your doors, all skinny & starved.
I’d like to leave y’all with my personal moment of Zen from last night’s debates, which I watched at P.’s house with a group of MFA/Ph.D.’s, BYOB, & a bowl of pretzels. It was better than any MST3k episode, only it determines the Fate of the Union. (Way serious-er than this, though it’s also fate-related.)
So vote for Obama, because he puns like a pro. It doesn’t get better than this. (2:50 min. into the clip, approximately. Totally worth the wait.)
