Have you read Lorrain's Monsieur de. Phocas?

I have not. I sure appreciate a time though when duels solved problems instead of courts. :p (Lorrain drew an epee with Proust! :eek:)

This guy gives an interesting review of the book.

I had read that blog, actually. I'd read the name Lorrain somewhere and I'd been trying to track him down for a few years when I stumbled across that review.

To see the two most flamboyantly homosexual men in Paris scrapping it out would have been a good reason to get out of bed that morning. I suspect Lorrain was angry that Proust stole the style of his moustache.

Hey, facial hair is a big deal.

I think you're on to something. What a copycat. :p

I think Proust embraced the handlebars in a more fashionable way.

Uuurgh, I don't appreciate horrible Smiths / Morrissey rip-off T-shirts.

I need mind bleach.

I don't like stalkers using twitter.

I was coming here to say how much counterfactualism annoys me, but stalkers using Twitter is probably worse unless you tweet lies to trick them, maybe?

Oh yeah, and leaf blowers.

I hate them.

People or things being late - Unless there's a bloody good reason.

Mindless lateness rifles me something rotten.

Human beings eating. Any type of food. It's just disgusting when you really think about it. The whole idea of teeth, in a hole in your face, mashing away. Yuck.
I'm actually eating a sandwich right now, and I am physically repulsed by myself!
You would think we'd have come up with something better by now, what with the moon landing, cameraphones, hi-fi stereos yadayadayada....

Lebron James; if people start showing up for Heat games, then my afternoon commute will be hellish.
