shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


new meaning of kafka-esque

From today's Reliable Source column in the WP:

An occasional verbatim press release

'Headlines have been plagued with celebrity trials this summer -- Michael Jackson, Martha Stewart, Cameron Diaz and Courtney Love, to name just a few. With pleas of 'not guilty' before the courtroom, their appeals are reminiscent of Joseph K. in Franz Kafka's 'The Trial.' Above the law, breaking the law, whatever the law, it's clear that establishing one's innocence is the celebrity trend of the summer. . . . Montblanc's verdict is in: The Limited Edition Franz Kafka fountain pen is the ultimate accessory for summer trials. Dressed in bordeaux transparent resin, The Kafka writing instrument transitions from square to round. Available in fountain pen ($725) and ballpoint pen ($395) at Montblanc boutiques nationwide, including Washington DC Boutique.'"

    I always knew K was guilty.

    that review is utterly ludicrous. I actually quite liked that pen ( I normally don't like MAHBAHS) but since learning it is the accessory of choice for 'celebrity' trials (whatever they are) I have gone off it.

    I think K is guilty too
