Marginalia is for lovers

Drinking a Porkslap, which I like the taste of, but hate the name. The can says “Brewed with Ginger,” but I don’t taste it much, if at all? Anyway a solid cheap-ish but not cheap tasting beer.
Just picking Flannery O’Connor’s Collected Stories to read alongside it, whom I’ve been told numerous times to read and am sure I’ll enjoy. If we’re being completely honest, though, I bought this dollar copy (.50 cents with employee discount!) at the Strand primarily for its extensive annotations by the previous owner. Some real fuckin’ gems and good advice: “Don’t go where a convict is going.” and “Good leadership skills! I want to manipulate people like that.”
Beautiful doodles on the side too.

Making lists and diagrams out of long reads is not a 21st century student invention. It is one of the most common forms of marginalia found in medieval manuscripts.
