Bye Mean Week

cute

That’s that. I had fun a little. People are crazy. Sometimes there are ideas. Thanks for playing.

This weekend is Halloween. Eat some candy? Get drunk if you have to. Wear a costume? I’m thinking of going as William Burroughs, if I go. Might need a fedora and some glasses and come stains and cat hair on a suit, that’s all. What will you be?

This weekend I am reading Thomas Bernhard’s Wittgenstein’s Nephew, which just came out in a new version from Vintage. It feels nice in another, Bernhardian kind of way.

I am also reading Heather Christle’s The Difficult Farm, which also just came out, and which we will run excerpts from and love for all next week. After Mean Week, comes Heather Christle Week. I think it will serve as a fine rainbow.

Another announcement is forthcoming. In the meantime, take your blood around, install a doorstop, and enjoy.

      I used to go as Hunter S. Thompson every year. This year I dressed as Norman Mailer. No one at work got it.
