Dear Katsufrakis,

The Sun Also Rises in Your Pants

The Unbearable Lightness of Being in Your Pants

The Sigh in Your Pants

The Elegance of the Hedgehog in Your Pants

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius in Your Pants

I Capture the Castle in Your Pants

Thriving in Your Pants

A Long Way Gone in Your Pants

The Idiot in Your Pants

Horton Hears a Who in Your Pants

The Sneetches in Your Pants

Little Women in Your Pants

 

P.S.

I listened to/read this commencement speech by David Foster Wallace and  you need to read/listen to this because it’s beautiful and I love it and so will you. http://web.archive.org/web/20080213082423/http://www.marginalia.org/dfw_kenyon_commencement.html

    These are some of the best ones I’ve seen. “A Heart Breaking Word of Staggering Genius in Your Pants” is just fantastic.

      Has either part of the hivemind read a Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius outside of her pants because if you have I must squee with her over the fact that I shook Dave Eggers’s hand and have his signature.

        Ignore the grammar.
        Dave does that to me.

        I haven’t. Don’t know about her.
        But reading it inside Olivia’s pants sounds like an interesting idea as well. xD
        Although there might not be much room.

        I would offer to lend my copy but I lent it to my best friend from eighth grade in an attempt to turn her off of Nicholas Sparks a la “The Mountain Goats Will Cure Your Beiber Fever” but it didn’t work and I never see her anymore so I don’t know if I’ll ever get it back.
