Last night with R:
me: Its going to be so much fun when you can share all these things with S. (ed: R's daughter, age 4). Did you read The Egypt Game? Kind of a companion piece to The Mixed up Files. 1960s New York, good god. Breakfast at Tiffany's, Lyle Lyle Crocodile, tail end of Salinger, The World of Henry Orient, Auntie Mame, Peggy Guggenheim, and now Mad Men.
R: That is quiet a gamut of age ranges! We read lyle lyle a lot now. I never read The Egypt Game! Exciting. Auntie Mame is a Very Weird Read.
me: i get easily carried away
