Speaking of Ratty, this happens to be the 100th anniversary of the publication of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows. To find out more about it, and what kind of editions of the book are collectible, go here.
I thought about buying a little paint-it-yourself statue of Ratty (the real Ratty) in order to commemorate the event.
But they cost over $10 and you have to have them shipped from the UK, which is expensive, and besides, I don't want to contribute any more to image consumerism. I think that's why I took down all my posters, for those of you who were wondering.
