The Day After the Oscars

See my italicized edits in a previous entry.

Happy Birthday Anthony Burgess, 1917. You gave us one of the greatest opening lines ever, not to mention many wonderful books.

And that opening line was: It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me. From Earthly Powers.
