"I saw a scrap of omelette on the kitchen floor, and I thought to myself, "If I have guests they are damn sloppy. I'll cut their throats and throw the lot of 'em out." But when I bent to pick it up I groant; it was not a piece of hard egg, but a piece of stuffing. Something had delaminated and it wasn't the linoleum. It wasn't the subfloor and it wasn't the atmosphere in the crawlspace. It was the inner meaninglessness of my house, and by extension my time there and my act. Then it turned out I did have guests after all and that their throats were already cut, and their bodies were already pitched out into the yard, and the birds had already eaten them, and collectors had already carried away the bones. So the distraction was already gone, but I still had to act. The house was already becoming sterile."

A new book?

One with pop-up art, and a FRANK story? Maybe the one about Kentuck Fried Jerry Chicken?

Or, to be more succinct, you're having your cake and eating it, too. ;-)

Have your cake and eat it too!
What else would you do with it?

I'm struggling with charcoal drawings. Would you have any suggestions for beginners? Your tones are so much smoother than anything I can make so far.

I can't decide if you're brilliant or insane (or maybe both). Either way, I like it.

"Alex" needs to be properly ventilated in some alley somewhere.

Tom, that would be too kind! I would suggest feeding "Alex" to a giant Woodringesque larva, bit by sorry bit.

He bought some oranges of a little, bowlegged black boy, and sat down on a log to eat them and to give up his mind topamax to enjoyment..

Alex's case seems serious.

Acupuncture followed up by a vigorous lemon juice massage might help.

You are doing what Ozzie Nelson would have done, had he only been able to break free of the House of Pancakes.
