Miguel Hernandez Poem of the Day

Excerpt from I Have Lots of Heart

Today, I am, I don’t know, I don’t know how,
today I am here only to suffer,
today I have no friends,
today I have only the desire
to rip my heart out by the roots
and crush it under my shoe.

Vonnegut: Too Funny

Player Piano is hilarious. Self didn’t go anywhere yesterday, spent the entire day reading. (She is hard-pressed to remember what other Vonnegut she has read before this)

The novel has all sorts of fun with a distinguished visitor to America, the Shah of Bratpuhr. The Shah declares he only wants to meet “representative Americans.”

  • The personnel machines had considered the problem and ejected the card of Edgar R. B. Hagstrohm, who was statistically average in every respect save for the number of his initials: his age (36), his height (5’7″), his weight (148 lb.s), his years of marriage (11), his I.Q. (83), the number of his children (2: ages 9 and 6), the number of his bedrooms (2), his car (3-year old two-door Chevy sedan), his education (high school grad, 117th in class of 233), his vocation (R & R), his avocations (spectator sports, TV, softball, fishing), and his war record (5 years, T-4 radioman, 157th Infantry Division)

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
