Take it Back

"We ain't stealin', we're just takin' back; very simple plan of attack: It's our job and a labour of love; take it home to the up-above. . ."

Damnit, Norman: why you gotta be such a role model?

There are a few books you need to read if you want to really "get" me. No one who hasn't read them has ever really understood why I make a lot of the choices I do.

  1. Don't Stop the Carnvial by Herman Wouk - I am Norman Paperman on my best days

  2. Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie - "Peter Pan would understand his schemes, dreams and ploys"

  3. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - It's the sword in the stone, don't you see?

  4. Where Is Joe Merchant? by Jimmy Buffett - Frank Bama and I are kindred spirits, with the same problems and the same god-damned resolution issues.

  5. A Salty Piece of Land by Jimmy Buffett - That wasn't Tully Mars checking in. It was me. I hope I check out half as fortunately as he did.

That's the required reading for the course that is "WTF-MJD 101"

There's also some optional reading, as well as a set of required films and songs you need to hear, but you gotta get through the above first. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to find a copy of Peter Pan in Scarlet before PSA tonight. I'm suddenly in need of a certain fix.

"We ask ourselves when we get in a fix, "What would Popeye do in a tight spot like this?" He'd race for his true love and easily win it, in an old spinach can with a mast stuck in it!"
