    There's more but this is all I can remember right now.

    Favorite Writer - James Joyce. So what if I could only read 35 pages of Finnegan's Wake after 2 months of note making. It was worth it. And I respect Joyce for his vision (which I'll make a thread about now, although I should have done that on June 16th probably). I mean, how can you not love a guy who can write things like - 'Hootch is for husbandman handling his hoe. Hohohoho, Mister Finn, you’re going to be Mister Finnagain! Comeday morm and, O, you’re vine! Sendday’s eve and, ah, you’re vinegar! Hahahaha, Mister Funn, you’re going to be fined again!'
