Truth in naming, or, I was born to write this book [Jul. 9th, 2003|11:32 am]
Just me.
Ordering books for the library on relationships/marriage today, I got a chuckle out of this:

Infidelity: A Survival Guide by
Don-David Lusterman.

Maybe it's really pronounced "Loost-er-man", a la "Viktor Fronk-en-steen".

I'm kinda disappointed...I was hoping it would be a "how-to" but instead he talks about how its a bad thing. I got the impression he would give the in's and out's if your going to cheat. I can say "truth in advertising" isn't here...

There was an article in an issue of HUSTLER a while back that actually DID give step-by-step instructions for guys on how to conduct an affair without getting caught.

But, of course, I didn't see the article myself. Someone told me about it. I wouldn't go near that filthy piece of trash that supposedly calls itself a magazine.

At least not on Tuesdays.

How many copies did you order for the library?

Tangentally, this reminds me of when I worked for Ford Roadside Assistance. I once recieved a call from a town very close to Cheesequake PA. Cheesequake.


I immediately thought to myself "I bet they pronounce it "Chess-ah-queue" or some other silliness." Me? I pronounce it "Really Fucked Up."

Then again, I'm the one who lives near "Bat Cave."

There's an Iowa, Louisiana, pronounced "Eye-oh-way".
