The irrational yet irrestible urge to know or make known. The CC is a "club" founded by a small group of medical professionals, who have made a pastime of turning medical cases and discussions into medically irrelevant history lessons, philosophical rants, and displays of one-upsmanship. The official premise, since the "club" was named, has been to exchange and discuss various books, movies, and ideas. Sometimes we eat sushi.

I found this in a bathroom in Atlanta.
I think it bring new meaning to writing on a bathroom wall. And the utility of a suggestion box.
SHORT STORIES BY MURAKAMI
Who like short stories? I am not a fan. I have several books of short stories, but most remain unread. I think the idea is good but the problem is for me they are too short. Just when I am understanding the people in the story, it is over.
All this to say I am listening to this book, and it contains Murakami in the forward explaining how he views short stories and gives me some insight as to what makes him tick. I think he has a book about his life, etc. and I want to listen to it. I hate to get stuck on one author but I have not been disappointed with any Murakami book yet.

How do you spell eagles? Maybe this car owner in promoting a shaving cream--EA-GELS, or maybe there is an alternative spelling of eagles.
Or maybe they were so excited they forgot, or maybe they don't know how to spell eagles--probably the same people who cheer for the Kansas City Chefs!
