You know, I'm such an idiot. Today's my 10-month anniversary with the woman. And I totally spaced out on it. And what makes it even more stupid is that the 2 of us talk about it in advance, like: "Hey, it's almost the 19th!"

Anyway, I'm sorry, baby - happy 10-month anniversary. And to those of you who would make fun of monthly anniversary notices, I say: fuck off. This is the first time I've had a relationship that went this long. Unfortunately, she has rehearsal tonight, so it's not even like we get to smooch. The year anniversary should be pretty insane - it includes dinner at Peter Luger's. Oh yeah.

Tonight - stomach willing, drinks w/ JDixon. Tomorrow night - backstage pass to the Allman Bros. at the Beacon.

Started re-reading DFW's "Broom Of The System." [The woman wants me to read the LOTR books before the movie comes out - sorry - I will read 'em, I promise.] The other day, I don't know what triggered it but I suddenly had a mental image from the book. So I picked it up again. It's no "Infinite Jest", by any stretch of the imagination, but it's ok. A little too clever for its own good, maybe, but DFW writes just about better than anybody, and I need to hear that voice again.

So bored. A quick list, then, perhaps?

FAVORITE MOVIES in no particular order off the top of my head:

Usual Suspects
Citizen Kane
Dr. Strangelove
Fisher King
Blue Velvet

.......and I'm spent.

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
