<< 2. That name, "Thursday", is kind of off-putting.
(I've never met anyone named after a day of the week, anyway.) Is this supposed to be a tip of the hat to G.K. Chesterson's THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY? >>

Couldn't say, but there was also a secondary character in Robert Littell's hard-boiled espionage novel _The Sisters_ named Thursday. He was the sisters' "man Friday". <g>
