Call me Ishmael

January 6, 2010

So fans,

Without further adieu, here we go; oh, and in no particular order:

1. Call me Ishmael.

2. To Athene’¬† then.

3. A screaming comes across the sky.

4. to wound the autumnal city.

5. riverrun, past Eve and Adam’s, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings¬† us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs.

6. I am seated in an office, surrounded by heads and bodies.

7. Many people in the Miracle Valley had theories about why Joe Mondragon did it.

8. I owe the discovery of Uqbar to the conjunction of a mirror and an encyclopedia.

9. Mr Hungerton, her father, really was the most tactless person upon earth–a fluffy, feathery, untidy cockatoo of a man, perfectly good-natured, but absolutely centered upon his own silly self.

10. In the spring of 1829, the author of this work whom curiosity had brought into Spain, made a rambling expedition from Seville to Granada in company of a friend, a member of the Russian Embassy at Madrid.

Go for it; and Happy New Year.
