Still Life with Woodpecker

My favorite book of all time is Tom Robbins' Still Life with Woodpecker. It about a developing relationship between a princess, Leigh-Cheri, and an outlaw, The Woodpecker. It is poetic in every way imaginable. On my nails I painted some of the themes of the book:
My index finger says "Yum," the mantra of the Woodpecker.
On my middle finger I have a pack of Camel cigarettes, the setting of the entire tale.
My ring finger is The Woodpecker's bushy red hair. This red hair shows up a lot in the novel.
My pinky is a match stick, for The Woodpecker to blow things up
And my thumb is a bottle of tequila underneath the moonlight. If you look closely, you can see the UFO in the upper right corner.
