things i learned (and re-learned) on the train-ride to work
a) cakes are really hard to travel with on crowded public transportation
b) my man pynchon can really turn a phrase. I am only halfway through Against the Day (a review of which I've promised JBB on completion of the novel... eta early january) and i've already encountered sentient tornadoes, anarchist miners, time-travel conventions, cities buried under oceans of sand, zeppelin riding 'hardy-boy'-esque boy detectives, bird-dogging archdukes, and attempted homicide with mayonnaise as the murder weapon du jour.
c) i'm coming to terms with the fact that yes, I do dance like Snoopy. This morning i kick-started my day with some OTC and when "Sunshine Fix" came on I was all Charles Schultz's beagling it all over the place.
d) cakes are really easy to eat after a crowded ride on public transportation. Croftie, my work approves!
e) Gogol, tomorrow. be there or be devoid of insanely intense fiddling, caberet dancing, awkward ukranian rapping, and gypsy-punk-tacular rock'n'roll stylings.
