boy, bumby. paris.

read - a moveable feast by ernest hemingway

i finished this sometime after cutting
my hand and before my surgery. i then
started sartre's the words while downing
vicodin in a sunshine hammock and
discovered how vicodin soaked sartre in
the sunshine is better than vicodin laced
hemingway in bed, but only slightly so.
though i do hate to say it since sartre is a bit
of an annoying prick and at least hemingway
is loveable, all else aside.

i really started this with only the intention
to get hemingway's scoop on stein since i do
love her so.
