Allow me to introduce myself… K 006.jpg


I am an old man. Inside. I am newly married, but it feels like longer. I have blue eyes and a paunch where my stomach used to be. Not going bald, thank gods. Not going bald yet.

My mom and dad used to think I had potential, but I guess they were wrong. I read constantly and I only have a few friends. My wife used to be one of them. When I was sixteen I fell in love the first time. Again when i was eighteen and again when I was twenty two. Then one more time at twenty two and once at twenty three. The last time I fell in love I was twenty five. Now I am older. I like Neil Young. That is what is currently playing on my stereo. I am in the basement of my house. My wife is upstairs. Watching a documentary on PBS. She is smart. Smarter than me.

I think that that is mainly what soured our relationship. The fact that she is smarter. I know it and, unforunately, so does she. I have eczema. It is currently itching. I am trying not to scratch.

I don't have a favourite author, but seven of my fifteen favourite authors are Dostoevsky, Scott Card, Coetzee, Nietzsche, Deleuze, Spinoza and Mignola.

When I was twenty two I was shot in the stomach by a stray bullet. I was walking down my street, going to buy the newspaper and a drive-by gone wrong is what did it. I lost consciounsness. Waking up in the hospital, I saw my parents, my mother crying, as was my dad. So I cried too. They bought me a book by a man whose last name is Brown. Since then, I associate his books with being shot in the stomach.

My wife is two years older than me. I still love her. But she is smarter than me.

We have no kids. Almost did. But nought came out of it. It's just the two of us.

I am not bald. Not yet.

    Just “Hi” :). Looking through my stat counter, I found myself on your blog roll. What a surprise! Since you read SC, you must have some roots/rhizomes in the Balkans ;). Good luck and see you.

    Hello. Or “cao.” Yes, I would say that, for better or for worse, some of my biggest rhizomatic offshoots reach the Balkan Lands. I must compliment you, first of all, on your writing. Secondly, thanks for the visit. Thridly… well, that is all. Cheers.

    Thank you. I’m glad you found my “writing” interesting, most of all because I write mostly for fun. I have no idea how you reached me, but if you browse myblog.co.yu, you will find several people who have *real* talent. Also, I’ll be back to explore your blog, you seem quite a bit more serious than me :). And tell me if you want my comments in Serbian, instead of English ;). Vidimo se 🙂

    You may write in whichever language you feel most comfortable with. And I am assuming that I may do the same. I to cu, najverovatnije, i raditi. A nasao sam tvoj blog tako sto nisam mogao da se setim imena serije u kojoj su dva lika bila kamila Matilda i jedan mali Arapin whose name I can’t remember right now (Sima?). I tako, browse-ujuci sam naleteo na tvoj blog, koji mi se prilicno dopao. As far as talent goes, you seem to be selling yourself short. Cheers.

    zove se Lutkarski divani

    a pjesma između orla i kamile je išla u stilu “O zašto imaš četir’ noge”

    yes, you are right. it was/is called that. and the song did go something like that. maybe not exactly, but not too far off, either.
