I mentioned earlier

That I was re-reading White Noise. If you have not read this book, do mankind a favor and read it. The chapters are short and suited for reading on the toilet. And it has the best ending of any book I've read in a very long time. Here are some of my favorite lines thusfar:

"Flavorless packaging. It appeals to me. I feel I'm not only saving money but contributing to some kind of spiritual consensus. It's like World War III. Everything is white. They'll take our bright colors away and use them in the war effort."

"Maybe there is no death as we know it. Just documents changing hands."

"My room is zoned for a hot plate."

Ginger and I also went to the ocean recently (this is mainly a test of the new digital camera so bear with me).

I apologize to everyone

I am dismayed that this blog has degenerated into a Cooley v. Wujick pissing contest. I will work diligently to quash these kinds of activities in the future. For now, know that I am re-reading Don Delillo's White Noise in an attempt to become more cynical. Oh, and I'm building a fence.
