With a review like this, it’s gotta be good: We’re just about the happiest we’ve ever been with this book, and it’s mostly because of all the vomit stories and references to Arby’s.

Mmm. Arby’s.

Bloomsday 101 | 12:55 pm | 16 June 2005

…and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.

It’s Bloomsday!
Tonight, Stephen Colbert is playing Leopold Bloom in the annual Bloomsday on Broadway. Not in New York? It’ll be on WBAI 99.5, which has a feed.

Three years ago, we were in Dublin for Bloomsday, and Russ proposed. (YAY, RUSS! YES!) Tonight, we’ll be taping the WBAI feed and enjoying some fine whiskey at Brocach.*

Which I will sorely need…

I cannot find any Bloomsday events in Madison. Fie!

I started rereading the book last night and have worked up a powerful thirst. Who wants to meet up for gorgonzola sandwiches washed down with burgundy* and Guinness?

* at the wedding** we served a gorgonzola puffpaste appetizer with a burgundy cream sauce
** when we get around to it, our rings (claddaghs) will be engraved with “yes I said yes I will Yes***.”
*** someday I may get around to posting the text of Superior to Fear, the wedding book we wrote.

MATT WARDEN is my copy editor | 2:01 pm | 13 May 2004

I use “we” when I mean “you.” “As we saw in the previous chapter…” “We’ll work through this example line by line.” And so forth. Apparently we won’t be working through this example. You will be working through this example; I will be in the Bahamas drinking my royalty check.

Vanity Fair | 4:37 pm | 4 May 2004

Starts very enjoyable and grows tedious. Has no hero and I hated all the characters by the end, and wished they would all die, or at least not suck as much. Perhaps that was Thackeray’s point.

Kind of neat. Damn but I want one of those Buzz Rickson jackets, sight unseen. A very interesting comment on advertising and branding in that I’m not the only one: the jacket didn’t exist until the book came out, and the manufacturer had enough requests to start producing it in black. Please Hollywood don’t let Carrie Ann Moss star in the movie. (That goes double for Neuromancer!)

Good basic overview of knitting techniques with historical information and simple but attractive patterns. Fun and a lot of cool people are featured, like Becky.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man | 3:50 pm | 24 December 2003

PortraitJames Joyce
I enjoyed this much more than I did when I read it in high school. I owe quite a debt to this book, as it is what finally pushed my father out of the Jesuits. “I will no longer serve that in which I no longer believe.” I’ll read the essays I found, then reread it.
