Enemies Steeped in Irony

My greatest enemies are Woman and the Sea. These things I hate. Women because they are weak and stupid and love in the shadow of men and are nothing compared to them, and the sea because it has always frustrated me, destroying what I have built, washing away what I have left, wiping clean the marks I have made. And I’m not all that sure the wind is blameless either.

    now then, this is extremely random..the dire hell of schlonging around in an airport for twelve hours led me to googling random blogs with books i enjoy in them. how cheeky! this could be hilariously wrong but could you be PAUL from crystal dive? the wasp factory, as i lay dying and something about koh tao would lead me to believe so. if you are not, do ignore my spilly train of thought. if you are indeed this said paul, i am the girl with the obese sprained ankle and the room that epitomized vile.
