beautiful & strange

1. "no drugs...i need food...and sleep...and a mud bath...and a hooker...and some pomegranate juice...and a man named monroe to offer me three thousand dollars to bring him a sandwich...and a slow boat to malta...and dinah washington's disembodied voice to sing me to sleep...and maybe, just maybe, a really good mystery novel that never ends because the only mystery is why it can't end..."

2. i might get to work as a reader this summer session for the class i loved last summer. the one that convinced me to do this whole mad thing.

3. h: "ok yea, he's way worthy of a crush"

4. i already knew that.
