Stories on Acid

When describing a book or an author or a movie, people will often say, “it’s like x on acid.”

I was trying to describe my favorite contemporary author to a friend and I decided that acid was not enough. I like fiction on hard drugs.

Then I thought to myself, “why does nobody talk about fiction ‘on pot’?”

I think that fiction written on pot would either be:

  • one long, pointless sentence;
  • (this one is more likely) not written at all;

I guess we are better without it.

Midnight Mass

I went to midnight mass on Christmas at San Pietro (St. Peters’ Cathedral) in Rome.

If had to choose two words to describe the experience, they would be “long” and “boring.” If I had to choose one word, I would choose “Latin” because I think it implies the other two.

That said, I had a really good time. I saw the pope and lots of cute girls. Some where nuns.
