Beckett and Bathrooms

1) "I can't Go On, I'll Go On"

Beckett's one hundredth birthday is in two days. The Irish are devoting a whole month of festivities to their native son. Seems like a good week to pick up some of his works. I recommend Malone Dies.

2) Bathroom Banter

In a toilett stall today, I saw this exchange written on the door:

A (in girly, decorative handwriting): "Forgive him, and then love him anyway"
B (all caps, written in rough strokes): "OH, SHUT UP"
