I need to write something. Instead I will tell you of my birthday book presents:
Norwood by Charles Portis
I Like You by Amy Sedaris
Ulysses (!) by James Joyce, in a nice Modern Library edition
I love presents. I like them especially when they are given for no reason. Some of my best friendships have been littered with small gifts and when I find them, I feel good.
I am truly not a fan of gifts given by rote, however I will always accept cash.
I have gift giving on the brain because it will soon be my boyfriend's birthday. What to get the man who works too hard, cleans up the kitchen after various gloppy meals, and is rarely visibly embarassed by me? I have a few ideas, but do you have any?
