The Fast Metabolism Diet

By March, I'll be able to list my profile weight as 0, and not be lying.

Thanks for that, Mr. Fun! Quite enjoyable.

Reading John Grisham's Racketeer and finding it a bit tedious. Can't wait to start in on a small stack I got for Christmas. My very first Christmas gift from Mr.Sexus was a book,when we barely knew each other, and we always tend to give books as gifts to each other.

I rarely have the time to sit down with a book, but for the last week I've been slowly making my way through "Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking: A Memoir of Food and Longing" by Anya Von Bremzen.

It's fucking hilarious.

This is for Gina, the Official Prose Laureate of SLS Forums, who came to mind when I read this. It's a 1934 job application as a screenwriter by Robert Pirosh, who was hired and went on to write for the Marx Brothers. 

Dear Sir:

I like words. I like fat buttery words, such as ooze, turpitude, glutinous, toady. I like solemn, angular, creaky words, such as straitlaced, cantankerous, pecunious, valedictory. I like spurious, black-is-white words, such as mortician, liquidate, tonsorial, demi-monde. I like suave "V" words, such as Svengali, svelte, bravura, verve. I like crunchy, brittle, crackly words, such as splinter, grapple, jostle, crusty. I like sullen, crabbed, scowling words, such as skulk, glower, scabby, churl. I like Oh-Heavens, my-gracious, land's-sake words, such as tricksy, tucker, genteel, horrid. I like elegant, flowery words, such as estivate, peregrinate, elysium, halcyon. I like wormy, squirmy, mealy words, such as crawl, blubber, squeal, drip. I like sniggly, chuckling words, such as cowlick, gurgle, bubble and burp.

I like the word screenwriter better than copywriter, so I decided to quit my job in a New York advertising agency and try my luck in Hollywood, but before taking the plunge I went to Europe for a year of study, contemplation and horsing around. 

I have just returned and I still like words. 

May I have a few with you?
