Off topic, but have you ever read Proust? I've read "Swann's Way" twice and had a hell of a time of it. Just couldn't bring myself to read the other 6(?) parts of "Remembrance of things past". Such a unique writing style.

It's not as bad as reading Joyce (and if anyone tells me they understand Ulysses without help from an outside source, I'm calling that person a liar), but its hard enough.

As for the license plate holder........I guess I'd rather not be telling people I'd rather be be playing tennis myself.
