Big dogs who think they are lap dogs.
I want all of them.
All dogs are lap dogs.
The bigger the dog, the bigger the “puppy” within
things to say if someone asks why you are so quiet
- "i don’t have much to say"

Ernest Hemingway (1899 – 1961)
Ernest Hemingway made the world re-imagine what an American author could be. The Noble Prize winner was known for his macho lifestyle as much as his writing. He was a big game hunter, deep sea fisherman, explorer, bull fighter and of course enjoyed his whiskey and cigars. His began his writing as a journalist, being head of the school paper and skipping out on college to work for newspapers. After being sent overseas as an ambulance driver for WWI, he was awarded the Italian Silver Medal of Bravery. A Farewell to Arms was his first short story written in 1929 based off his war experience and the heartbreak of his fiancé leaving him. Under the mentoring of Gertrude Stein he met many of the time’s leading artists including longtime friend and fellow author F. Scott Fitzgerald. He went on to write seven novels, six short story collections, and two nonfiction works that were mostly inspired by his exotic travels. Hemingway married 4 different women with most marriages ending due to a new affair with the next wife. He was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and won a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He was a World War II correspondent and was present at the D-Day landings.
Hemingway was considered to be part of the 1920’s nicknamed “Lost Generation”. The term was coined by his mentor Gertrude Stein and referred to the generation that experienced World War I. Hemingway was popular due to his very short and to the point writing style mostly accredited to his early beginnings in Journalism. Unfortunately in Ernest’s later life he became an avid alcoholic that prevented him from writing anymore and, unable to find meaning in life, he ended it himself.
However Hemingway was no doubt the macho-est man of his era. In his early years he rocked a mustache but his beard became a trademark image the latter half of his life. Those white whiskers scented of expensive cigars and oozing of poetic genius put Ernest Hemingway on this week’s list.
