But sometimes you have to make exceptions, you know? Like for this book:
2) written by a friend of mine
3) totally enriched by the fact that *I* make an appearance as a character! As the mini-van driving philosopher of page 248-251. Which is basically the best thing anyone has ever characterized me as prettymuch ever.
4) did I mention that it's beautiful? It is. I stayed up till 1AM reading it because I just had to. And this was no easy feat considering that I'd spent the majority of the day barfing violently. (Can't let a winter go by without the stomach flu, now can I?!)
Anyway. Y'all should buy the book. In fact, you should buy it from Amazon right now!
And now I'll get myself back to those 35 books I've gotta read in the next 20 days...
