"The title means exactly what the words say: naked lunch, a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork.

I think here he is referring to the whole book as Bill Burrough's Naked Lunch Room, a lunch room . . .."
I love your Unsung Hero series. I had no idea that you loved All That Glitters! I got that shade a while ago and it really is amazing and flattering with a variety of shades. Naked lunch looks so nice on you! 041b061a72
