Guy Stuff Plug
Is everyone reading Guy Stuff? It's a very good read. I've helped facilitate the addiction of several people. If you haven't given it a shot so far, have a look.
Some lines from the latest chapter, to pique your interest:
- Ony a few other people were waiting for the train in the half-lit gloom: an elderly Asian couple, a young guy in a baseball hat and leather jacket, and a middle aged black guy strumming some blues on a battered electric guitar. I took out my wallet and checked the contents: two dollars. The black guy had put out an old derby hat in front of him; I added one of my dollars to the few quarters that lay at the bottom.
“Bless you, brother,” he said.
“Hey, I need the karma,” I said.
“Then may the circle treat you right,” he said, smiling.
“Hope so,” I said.
“You give to homeless guys a lot,” said Emily as I rejoined her.
“I do when they’re adding something,” I said. “Guys who are just sitting there, usually not. He’s playing not-bad blues.”
“They’re not-good blues, also,” she said.
“True,” I said. “But it’s the holidays.”
I need to find some good, relateable, interesting fiction. I usually read the classics, and find myself focused on things beyond the characters. But a really good character-driven read is all I want right now. I was thinking about Kristin Gore's book, which, judging from the excerpt, looks promising. But you, dear readers, are always an unequaled font of knowledge. Read any good books lately?
