Books I Enjoyed

When my mother did finally come home with my baby sister, I was very annoyed. She was a whiney little fartball who constantly stole my thunder, but eventually she grew up to be one of the funniest people I know, although she can still be both farty and whiney. She now works as a writer on my television show, where I shamelessly exploit her for my own profit. Sweet revenge.

It was San Francisco, after all; if you're a guy and you're worried about the girl you like hooking up with someone on her vacation, I suppose San Francisco is the safest bet, assuming she doesn't give her heart to a lesbian Ñ and who among us hasn't done that?

Milo came into the world, a sticky, angry, and slightly confused mess, just like his dad.

[Becomes late-night host] A little bit of cool goes a long way; it lands on you if you are a late-night talk-show host. Consider the other guys: if Dave wasn't the king of late night he'd just be a cranky old man who drives too fast. Jay would be a weirdly needy mechanic, and Conan would have kids following him down the street calling him names. Without his show Jimmy Fallon is just a thirty-five-year-old giggly adolescent; and Jimmy Kimmel is a cool guy, but he'd be the first to admit he's not cool Ñ in another life he'd be a genial maitre d'.


In retirement Sherlock Holmes befriends and accepts as a partner Mary Russell, a 15-year-old tomboy with a mind as sharp as his own. She tells the story.

"My God," he [Sherlock] said in a voice of mock wonder, "it can think."
"My God, it can recognize another human being when it's hit over the head with one." For good measure I added, "And to think that I was raised to believe that old people had decent manners."
"Young man, ..."
"'Young man!'" That did it. Rage swept into my veins, filling me with power. Granted I was far from voluptuous, granted I was dressed in practical, that is, male, clothing - this was not to be borne. ... With a surge of glee I seized the weapon he had placed in my hands and drew back for the coupe de grace. "Young man?" I repeated. "It's a damned good thing that you did retire, if that's all that remains of the great detective's mind!" With that I reached for the brim of my oversized cap and my long blonde plaits slithered down over my shoulders.
A series of emotions crossed his face, rich reward for my victory. Simple surprise was followed by a rueful admission of defeat, and then, as he reviewed the entire discussion, he surprised me. His face relaxed, his thin lips twitched, his grey eyes crinkled into unexpected lines, and at last he threw back his head and gave a great shout of delighted laughter. That was the first time I heard Sherlock Holmes laugh, and although it was far from the last, it never ceased to surprise me, seeing that proud, ascetic face dissolve into helpless laughter. His amusement was always at least partially at himself, and this time was no exception. I was totally disarmed.
