an unfortunate woman

some of the best things from richard brautigan's an unfortunate woman:

(there are other great things, but they're long, so these will have to do):

i can't find the exact quote, but something like, i would find cars more interesting if they came with their own parking space.

"also, i am always the last person to know what's going on in my life, but i have a feeling that's maybe the way it is with everybody and belief in self-understanding is only a delusion."

"i don't think it would be a very good idea to fall helplessly into silence and just stand there staring at a photograph of somebody and a chicken taken together in hawaii, waiting to be put out of my misery."
