Batuman seems like a person whose observations have the ability to amuse and inform–both at the same time.So… yeah, I’m going to try to find this book.

All these years I have been observing people around me in various stages of couplehood, and I believed I knew the secret. I thought they were in or were clinging on to some sort of mutual admiration/adoration,popularly known as ‘love’.
I was naive. Oh so naive.
Apparently the secret to successful ‘relationshipping’ (I made the word up) is–watching TV together! According to Curry Bear’s “The Theory of Teletivity” couples who watch tv shows together avoid fights and generally never bore each other–as they always have something to talk about!
Read Curry Bear’s brilliant post here.

A series of Finger Paintings on the iPhone captured in video format–another reason why I love the New Yorker!

Do not try to find Salvation with your friend or lover. Be satisfied with a human being in this relationship and look elsewhere for your god.
Indeed. We put expectations that could bog down a deity on mere humans…
