Yeah, it's been this way for a while. I'm both uninteresting and slightly paranoid, so if you're reading this and not a casual acquaintance, don't worry: you're not missing much.

Amy Hempel quotes [Feb. 1st, 2007|11:58 pm]
Vehement Romantic, frantic
[Current Location |The suite]
[Current Mood |impressedimpressed]

She is simple. But she takes a train of thought a half-step further than anyone else, exposing a great deal about her characters in very, very few words. Here we go:

About Eve Grant, Wesley has said that he married the most beautiful woman he ever saw and learned the irrelevance of beauty. -Three Popes Walk Into A Bar

I saw him do it once, which is all the times he did it. -Pool Night (This story is about a boy lighting himself on fire before he dives into a pool.)

"I like my dinner in a bag and my life in a box," she said, nodding toward the TV. -BEG, SL TOG, INC, CONT, REP

I had accidents. I had bigger ones. But the part that hurt was never the part that got hurt. -BEG, SL TOG, INC, CONT, REP

The best way I can explain it is this - I have a friend who worked one summer in a mortuary. He used to tell me stories. The one that really got to me was not the grisliest, but it's the one that did. A man wrecked his car on 101 going south. He did not lose consciousness. But his arm was taken down to the wet bone - and when he looked at it - it scared him to death.
I mean, he died.
-In the Cemetery Where Al Jolson Is Buried

A blind date is coming to pick me up, and unless my hair grows an inch by seven o'clock, I am not going to answer the door. -Tonight Is A Favor To Holly

When she sees him, Holly says, it's like the sunsets at the beach - once the sun drops, the sand chills quickly. Then it's like a lot of times that were good ten minutes ago and don't count now. -Tonight Is A Favor To Holly

Here's a trick I found for how to finally get some sleep. I sleep in my husband's bed. That way the empty bed I look at is my own. -Nashville Gone To Ashes
