yes I said yes I will Yes.

Topics of conversation last night included, but were not limited to: Japanese pornography, Chilean telenovelas, Maria Izquierzo, Beverly Hills, 90201, French cinema, Russian cinema, Foucault, French postmodernism, David Foster Wallace, Jorge Luis Borges, metafiction, metaliterature, postmillenialism, premillenialism, the Millerites, Jonathan Edwards, "A Humble Attempt," "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," Lolita, Nabokov, but most of all James Joyce and Ulysses: Joyce's epic project, whether Leopold Bloom is dirty old man, the correspondences with The Odyssey, Irish nationalism, Jewish messianism, transcendence, immanence, why all the women in the novel are on their periods, and whether Joyce is too allusive for his own damn good. Oh, I love it.

But now back to summarizing Jubilees and the Book of Enoch and the Sefer Zerubabel.
