"Yes, you are nosy," said Howl. "You're a dreadfully nosy, horribly bossy, appallingly clean old woman. Control yourself. You're victimizing us all."

"But it's a pigsty," said Sophie.
"I can't help what I am!"

"Yes you can," said Howl. "And I like my room the way it is. You must admit I have a right to live in a pigsty if I want. Now go downstairs and think of something else to do. Please. I hate quarreling with people."

Now, I must go and buy the rest of the ingredients for my Christmas present cookies.

one day. Just like how I'm going to finish Swann's Way at some point before the new year (I bought it a year ago? I think.) but until then, I may just spend my time marveling at how creative and weird and insane Every Page of Moby Dick Illustrated is.

And it makes me wonder if there's a book in my life that I'd illustrate every page of it?

I might enjoy that more than Nanowrimo.

Neil Gaiman twittered about the Bad Sex in Fiction prize shortlist and reading over some of the entries (and some very familiar literary lion names) make me feel a little bit kinder toward terribly written bleach your eyes AVERT YOUR GAZE AND TELL NO ONE efforts in fan fiction (though some may argue actually this is like comparing apples to oranges - angry, know it all apples).

But not really. Because I'm awful that way. Seriously, some of these entries are HILARIOUS.

counterpoint: What about well written scenes of intimacy?
