The WoC "In My Parents' Country" Short Story Books
The Laws of Evening by Mary Yukari Waters
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri

The Homosexual Male Addiction Extravaganza
Dry by Augusten Burroughs
Choke by Chuck Palahniuk
Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs
When You are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris

I didn't necessarily have a theme going, either. But yeah, I should do two entries in the future covering those books.

Naked Lunch really fucked with my brain, so much so that I actually thought of taking a break from reading, but that notion only lasted about four hours, so now I'm reading The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens, which I am henceforth going to refer to by its expository title*, A Bunch of Middle Aged White Guys Eat, Drink and Bomb Around the English Countryside by Charles Dickens. It's already a lot of fun and I have much thoughts on ABoMAWGEDaBAtEC, but I'm going to wait on that, too.


*It Really Sucks that I Have no Arms, Legs or Face by Dalton Trumbo is my favorite, followed closely by Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett [rimshot!]

I feel like an ass for leaving my last entry as the primary one for what feels like a week. Especially because it was just a moment-of-frustration bit over pyratejenni's assery over the WisCon/Something Awful bullshit. It's kind of ironic, because only a few days ago I'd tried to convince her why "Substituting sexist terms for racist terms in an effort to show a wanker that they're being a sexist ass" is usually not an effective form of argument and received a similar amount of "Bah, I will not let my opinion be clouded by facts."

You know, considering I also got in an argument with a high schooler when I tried to explain why "feminazi" is a stupid word makes me think some things aren't worth the effort.

Or at least I'm going about them the wrong way ... shall I write an essay on why "feminazi" is stupid or has someone more erudite than me already gotten to it?

I'll do it. For serious. I love you. Bueller?

I has day off tomorrow. w00t!
