06/19/12: The other day, I was talking to someone at work, and the subject of story lengths came up: how long is a short story, how long is a novelette, that sort of thing. So I looked it up in the Internet, and in the Wikipedia article about word count, there was a link to the list of longest novels. I followed that link to find that the current Guinness World Record Holder for Longest Novel is In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust, at an estimated 1.2 million words.
      When I saw that, the first thing that popped into my head was a men's choir singing "Proust in his first book wrote about, wrote about..." in a madrigal style. This, of course, is from the "All-England Summarize Proust Competition" skit from Monty Python's Flying Circus. At the same time, I also thought of the character in the "Fish License" skit, where also mentions Proust. (Favorite line: "Look, it's people like you what causes unrest.")
      I've mentioned in the past that knowledge sometimes comes from strange places. When I ran across a mention of the Montgolfier brothers on a web site, I knew who they were because they were characters in a segment on Monty Python. I remember the first time I was in Wild Oats (now Whole Foods) by my house and wandered by the cheese section, I recognized a lot of the types of cheese as mentioned in the "Cheese Shop" skit. And in my second book The Hidden Message (coming soon to Amazon), I had one of the characters talk about sitting in Philosophy class, as I did a few years back, and having Monty Python flashbacks because of all the references to philosophers that were liberally sprinkled through the episodes. I may not have known who the philosophers were, like I did not know what all the different cheeses tasted like, but when I saw it was Joseph Montgolfier's birthday, I thought, "That's the guy from Monty Python. I should look him up." And I did, and I found out a little about the early days of ballooning. I think that kind of inquisitiveness is priceless.
      One more thing about Proust. The Wikipedia article about "
