so, this guy had the best idea.

This book designer, Charlie Orr, who’s done lots of stuff for soft skull, bloof, penguin, etc., decided that because he’s not a writer, but still had all these great ideas for books (or something like that), he would make covers for books that DON’T EVEN EXIST! Brilliant.

My favorite of Orr’s Hypothetical Library so far is the David Lehman series, the What Really Happened series. That shit is FUNNY.
The best is the What Really Happened: Dallas — November 22, 1963. The Hypothetical Flap Copy says:

While conjecture is irresistible and has its place in the construction of historical narratives, Lehman brings to each book a solid grounding in facts and details.

ha. check it out here.

i learned a new word. conjugal. i mean, i’d heard it before, but i really don’t think that i knew what it meant. apparently it means anything that has to do with marriage.

Example: conjugal home, conjugal bed, conjugal fight

how is that not the least romantic word ever? CONJUGAL? seriously? it sounds like constrain. or concrete. (of course i suppose it comes from conjoin or something, meaning coming together…)

which incidentally reminds me of a monty python skit about woody and tinny words.

i don’t know what’s happened to me, but ever since we crossed the border into georgia, i have been craving buttery and mayonaisse-y crab meat. all of my meals, except for one, have been based around crab. what has happened to me!?!?!? seafood is just so tempting, it makes a mockery of my vegetarianism; i just can’t say no.

aided by the caffeine gum that kelsy’s cousin provided us (i.e. provided me) with, we made it to savannah last night. starving, and jones-ing for a local brew, we ate at the local Moon River Brewing Company. The beer I had was good, as were the fried green tomatoes with blue crab salad. there are a lot of different recipes for blue crab salad, it seems, but the main ingredient is mayo, along with some spices and onions and stuff like that. the ambiance of the restaurant, however, i could only describe as bro-y, and so i will leave it at that.

this morning: sunday brunch (the first i haven’t worked in a while). and OF COURSE more crabmeat a lá eggs benedict (YUM) at firefly cafe. i think it was another blue crab salad-esque dish.

dinner: also crabmeat. went to the crab shack off of tybee island, and after a dinner of poached crabmeat — i think that this was another version of the blue crab salad but with more spices — and some other seafood, we got to feed the alligators. yes, that is a giant (fake) alligator behind us.
