Favorite Lines

"Miss Fromsett gave me a sweet sad smile and I gave it back to her in the form of an obscene leer. I ate another cigarette and more time staggered by." --Lady in the Lake, Raymond Chandler.

  • Last story finished: Summer Highs
  • Reason for not writing: working far too many hours
  • Current song: Schism, by Tool
