Missed Connection- Adrian Tomine

The Real LJ Idol

I'm planning to participate in this, even though I'm still not quite sure what it is. Part of the process is announcing that I'm participating in The Real LJ Idol and linking to this thread so that you can join, too.

I'm also supposed to announce that I've never done it before, but I think that's clear from the above.

Savin' LJ, one entry at a time.

I am reading a chick lit book for research because I want to quick write one and make a few hundred thousand dollars. Perfect, right?

Only I don't want people to see me reading this:

So to save face, I put paper over the cover and wrote on the front: "Kafka or Nabokov or Kerouac":

And on the spine, "Tolstoy" and on the back, "Pasternak or Selby":

Now no one will ever know!

ps. yes, this is what i do at work.

Friends Only now!

I am very exciting. You know you want to read my entries. I add everyone, I just don't want my stuff out there for everyone to see. (If you're already on my friend's list no need to comment)
