    On Why I Can't Fit Into Modern Society

    Several years ago, this would be about the time I started blogging, I went to a party in Hollywood. My hostess had a beautiful black cat darting around the apartment. I scooped it up and asked, "What is your cat's name?"

    "Chandler," she answered.

    "Oh, that's a wonderful name for a cat," I said warmly. "Raymond Chandler is one of my favorite writers and he loved cats."

    "Well, that's not why I named him," she replied blankly. "I named him after the character on Friends."

    "Oh," I replied blankly in my turn (I had not, and still not have to this day, seen Friends).

    'Nuff said.
