I like to eat breakfast alone, and almost never before noon; anybody with a terminally jangled lifestyle needs at least one psychic anchor every twenty four hours, and mine is breakfast. In Hong Kong, Dallas, or at home—and regardless of whether or not I have been to bed—breakfast is a personal ritual that can only be properly observed alone, and in a spirit of genuine excess. The food factor should always be massive: Four bloody Marys, two grapefruits, a pot of coffee, Rangoon crêpes, a half-pound of either sausage, bacon, or corned beef-hash with diced chilies, a Spanish omelette or eggs Benedict, a quart of milk, a chopped lemon for random seasoning, and something like a slice of Key lime pie, two margaritas, and six lines of the best cocaine for dessert... Right, and there should also be two or three newspapers, all mail and messages, a telephone, a notebook for planning the next twenty four hours, and at least one source of good music... All of which should be dealt with outside, in the warmth of the hot sun, and preferably stone naked.

Yeah he's a decent writer. Someday he is going to lock himself in the Minnesota Cabin and write something.

Most people here have to trot off to work in the morning.
And aren't served bloody marys and a huge amount of food, is he fat too?

Lol. No. But there’s also no way in hell he eats breakfast every day let alone anything resembling that breakfast. When he’s on his benders he skips all the food and just does the bloody Mary’s and cocaine imo

How does he make his money?
I'm picturing a fat guy in his bathrobe just lounging on Four Season patios all over the world,'
ordering everything on the Four Seasons menu just to brag to JDuers. Or he's another poster's sock.

You are thinking of BTDO. Macunaima doesn't stay at 4 Seasons.

Macunaima has three sources of income:
(1) Doc Review, usually in some esoteric foreign language for which he is able to charge high rates. He is a polyglot.
(2) Solo business immigration practice. He has several clients that pay him to process business visas. He is able to do this work sitting anywhere in the world. So even when he is vacationing, he is billing.
(3) Actual corporate jobs like the rest of us. He takes these intermittently believing he can pull it off. These are usually high paying positions. He washes out after 5 months and returns to doing (1) and (2) above.
