On Flaubert to Maupassant in an 1878 letter: "You complain about fucking being ‘monotonous’. There’s a simple remedy: cut it out for a bit"
If someone could just tell me what I was born to be, I would appreciate it.
@Yarnybarny Yow, that is a bitchy comment. I didn't mean it to be but I am sorry I made it. If I could remove it, I would.
@melis I don't want to be the wet blanket, but since I so often am, especially when it comes to movies here you go: don't go into it expecting Sandlot quality. Now and Then is fine...I guess.
I had the 1979 version and it was not in great shape. What a great, great book.
Um, not to be a stickler but the DOLCE & GABBANA football trilby has people playing soccer on it.
@cabot_cove_syndrome Hello! I also lived in Chicago (city, but far Northside) for most of my life and now live in DC. I think all of the reasons you give for loving Chicago are correct. We should be friends.
I love Chicago so much I tear up when I fly into O'Hare or drive down LSD.
Patty Griffin is the best! If you needed some suggestions for what to listen to I really like Making Pies, Forgiveness and, especially appropriate for today's weather in the DC area, Rain. I would link to these vids on YouTube if I knew how, but trust that they are excellent and worth the extra Googling to find.
