it looks like i have a lot more friends here than i actually do, since a lot of people like to type cute things into their friends list section such as: "i have no friends" or "me myself and i" so i am on a lot of friends lists for no reason other than the fact that i am i.

friends?

these are all people who i think added me "by accident" if you take a look at their friends lists, you'll understand why.

if any of you actually added me because you like to read my journal, that's great, but with a friends list that consists of "friends, i, no", or the like, i doubt that is the case. as for everyone else, you are wonderful, i am always flattered to be added to anyone's read list, and if i don't add you it's only because i can't read everyone. i do look in every now and then, especially if someone comments in my journal.

i just counted, it seems almost 1/4 of the people who have befriended me don't even know it.

... The madness is illusory, and control never falters. It is, if you like, a rich wine of fancy chilled by the intellect to just the right temperature. There is no really close relative to it in all our prose literature. It is uniquely brilliant, and we are right to call it a modern classic.

-- Anthony Burgess, in his 1988 introduction to Titus Groan

i remember reading and loving the Gormenghast trilogy when i was younger. i'll be watching the movie on PBS tonight
