To: My benign foetus Regarding: The priest, lack of food
But HEY! An enjoyable supermarket experience cleared my airways. Try: Sweet young thing genuinely interested in my personal enjoyment of the menial task of shopping, who passes change by hand just because she knows you want to touch her hand. And was obviously pleased with a response to "How are you?" that made perfect sense in English. Not "Good, yourself?" because I was informed by an intelligent person that "No, you are not GOOD, you are FINE".
I saw Dracula with Bela Lugosi and then the Spanish version of the same film which was made as a way around doing Spanish subtitles. The spanish version, however more aesthetically pleasing, was let down by their Dracula's round face making evil expressions comical. Bela was amazing.
I know we "Catcher in the Rye" enthusiasts are snobbish bastards, but assuming someone knows what I'm saying: I've read about all that Mark Chapman-John Lennon-Catcher in the Rye stuff, but I've never heard mention of what to me was the most obvious connection. John Lennon and Mark Chapman both married a Japanese woman, and Mark didn't do it because of John Lennon, he married her before his 'obsession' began. And in the novel, Holden meets up with an old friend called Carl Luce. Luce says he's seeing an 'eastern' woman because he's more satisfied with the 'eastern' way of life. Holden agrees, after annoying Luce by talking about sex too much. Cold beer, asian women?
