i could be the next hemingway

Evidence against:

I do not write particularly well.
That which I do write is not "characterized by economy" or "understatement."
I possess neither a gnarly beard nor mats of gnarly chest hair.
I do not have any cats.
I have never been to Cuba.
I dislike Paris.
I have not been awarded a Pulitzer or Nobel Prize.

Evidence in support:

A cold beer, a hot cappuccino and a good novel at sunset in Africa.

I think you misjudge Hemingway... and yourself.

Hemingway wasn't Hemingway... until he was.

And as he said: There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.

Does that make any sense?

you'd also have to eat large animals (and large amounts of them) to get to the right girth :)

just sayin.

oh. and: what mandy said. hee.

And you bitched at me for not returning emails. Yeah that's right, I see your lengthly blogs which post-date my lengthy sent email.

And you're not Hemingway - you have a soul.

Hemingway was overrated, well, the chest hair was rather nice. Good beer and a good book in Africa seems just pretty darn good ( I was going for the understatement).

Well, I don't want to hasten to judge yet - can you post some sort of picture that accurately reflects your current state of facial hair?

NOTE: for all those hatin' on Hemmingway, it may to time to reread 'The Old Man and the Sea'. Say what you will about the man - that book rocks!

Gloria said...

is the book any good?

hi :)

how did you get to Africa? I have some catching up to do.

I dunno about the rest, but one way in which you are definitely not like Hemingway: I don't adore him. I just don't.
