On notebooks


I’ve written in notebooks for some years, even though I’m not very disciplined about writing in them regularly. I write down fake band names, dreams, good slogans, books and movies to checks out, excerpts from stories that will never be written, and mysterious lists.

I’m looking at this one list right now from a notebook I had about ten years ago, and I can’t for the life of me figure out what it’s referring to:



August Who Would Not Have Any Soup

Jimmy Sliderlegs

Little All-Aloney

Slovenly Betsy

Envious Minny

Frank, The Liar

Heedless Hugo

Slovenly Peter

The Cry Baby

I wish I knew what it was about.

  1. Clearly these are titles of children’s books to be written. Or maybe alternate Gashlycrumb Tinies.
