picked this up at a friend's house, and it is surprisingly good thus far -- as in, shockingly surprisingly good. quotable in the extreme. dali was quite a raffish character! i'm leaving it over at her house, so progress will be sporadic.

Natalie quotable in the extreme.

"I do not understand why, when I ask for a grilled lobster in a restaurant, I am never served a cooked telephone." My personal favorite Dali quote. I used to have a T-shirt with that on it.

And the chef arrived from the kitchen, exasperated as only a French chef can be exasperated. "The goats!" he cried. "Once again it is that they march!"

urk, that's kinda grisly. it's like buying the gun william s. burroughs shot his wife, or being really into oppenheimer so you purchase the throat cancer which killed him.

Natalie Heh. Full disclosure, then: Right behind me on one of my bookshelves is a bright orange prescription bottle full of dirt and rocks from the former site of Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment building.

On that cheery note, goodnight, Nicholas!!
