That's funny, because I read most of it at a leather bar in Houston where my friend Aaron worked, totally
on cinnamon schnapps and Dr. Pepper.
was a main part of my sailorly lifestyle. But then, that's how we roll in the dirty south, I suppose.

The same thing happened to me; I started it and said, wow, it's so gay! and then got distracted.

I'm about halfway through the book right now, and can report that it doesn't stay nearly as gay as it starts out.

Damn. Well, I'll try and give it a chance anyway.

I know this is supposed to be the great American novel, but I have never been able to read it at all. Maybe just because I am so turned off by killing whales. And enslaving orcas, just to keep up the past week's news. In know, I know, it is all supposed to be symbolic, but still. Anyway, if you get into it, let me know your secret.

the beginning is a seemingly endless drone about the minutia of whaling! i want symbolism and ubermenschen, not "the compleat angler"! still, i'll get to it. seriously, though, did you skip the whaling bit?

Yes, I stalled out on
again. I'm illiterate. And I should be killed.
