fingerprint, window, skyscraper

“a fingerprint on the window of a skyscraper…”

do you remember that scene from Sideways where the failed (aspiring) novelist and his friend of permanently high spirits are sitting on a log by the sea and the novelist has just about given up on himself and highlights his insignificance by comparing himself to a fingerprint on the window of a skyscraper?

yes. I liked that image.

In fact, so much so that for a good while my id on a msn messenger was “a fingerprint on the window of a skyscraper”

Among my other interesting msn messenger nicknames (btw. I have not used that program nor chatted in about two years now, what with the advent of gmail and a decline in chatting interest) was this line from Oedipus Rex:

“Live Oedipus, as if there is no tomorrow!”
