Maybe It’s the Damn Rabbits Coming Through the Walls Right Now

QUICK UPDATE: For all who have sent well wishes, thank you. Will respond to all e-mails, most of which have nothing to do with state of health, when I’m of sounder and healthier mind. In the meantime, here’s The Book Quiz (via George, I think). My results:


You’re Watership Down!
by Richard Adams
Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you’re actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You’d be recognized as such if you weren’t always talking about talking rabbits.

Well if that’s the case, then it’s too bad my greatest accomplishment today was spelling the word “KITE” on a spoonful of alphabet soup.


  1. I got Les Miz, how did you finagle a 20th century book? An overwrought, overwritten, third rate 19th century animal tale fantasy pastiche, but still a book first published in the 20th century.

    If you were smart enough to eat chicken soup instead of alphabet I may have to find some reason to work up the energy to hate you.

    Seriously, I hope you get to feeling better soon.

  2. Well, that’s pretty damned cool. Richard Adams and William Faulkner separated at birth.

    And, Alan, I only ate alphabet soup because (a) I was getting tired of chicken soup and (b) I was getting really fucking antsy to mess around with letters.

  3. The International Alan Conspiracy hereby awards you one (count them, one) Made Alan Laugh Point. Not Valid in any location where Matthew Lesko is considered calm and collected.

    And it had to be hot, which effectively eliminates Alpha Bits.
