Okay, I admit that I have been fingering through more books lately than a blind man trying to clog a hole in a Holland dike. (Take that sentence any way you like.) And, since I have been seen carousing with so many different tomes of literature these days (if I were famous there would certainly be photos of me with said novel(s) plastered on every magazine cover from coast-to-coast) the logical conclusion is for me to betroth a novel that deals with such a scandalous topic. Now, you may be rolling your eyes and saying that this is sure to be a doomed love affair. He can't last, you might add. He doesn't have the stamina (keep your minds out of the gutter, I am talking about a classic novel here). And, you know, I cannot begrudge your insights. It is true, that of late, I have been finding comittment more and more difficult. But Leo and I are going to see if we are compatible. Call it a first date. Perhaps, a blind date. No, not the ones were two people meet at a coffee shop or mall or some cheesy restuarant that neither party really wants to be at. This blind date is more of the stalker variety. I've been doing my homework. I know things. Just don't tell my wife that she may have to share the bed for the next couple of weeks with a dead Russian that may be the greatest writer to ever pen paper and me (actually, I might be kicked out to the couch). I hope she doesn't mind the smell. More later...

Nancy Rossman loved, loved this...I have about 200 pages left to go. OMG, it is awesome, but of course so much better phrased by you:)
