Caity Weaver's Doubloons: Part II
"Like is Ahab crazy or 'crazy crazy.'"
If you’re still wondering what to get that special someone for Valentine’s Day, nothing says “I like your face and the other bits too!” like a book on George Washington or an 1892 murder in Memphis. If you order it from Oblong, I’ll personalize it. If you don’t have time for all that, send your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll mail a little note to the object of your affection tout suite.
A paid subscription to STUDY MARRY KILL is also very hot.
A Twitter Roundtable: "Like is Ahab crazy or ‘crazy crazy.'"
And I don't understand how Ahab was able to, by hand, nail a gold coin to the ship's mast. It seems like it would be really hard to drive a nail through a coin. Then again, I've never tried to do it, so maybe it's easier than I think.
I took the question to Twitter and the replies were an absolute delight. And that’s the takeaway here, folks: Moby-Dick sparks joy.

A CALL TO ACTION:
I want to read a really smart romance novel about a newly divorced Moby-Dick expert who goes to this “Melville’s Energies” conference in Paris and, while monomaniacally pursuing the perfect croissant, gets her groove back.
