Technically, that makes you a cannibal

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.

silly you. even if you didn't paint it, Ratty would be cool because he's made of wood!

so I don't have to try and repeat what Adrien said but with different words, pretend I'm a Greek chorus.

The Shakespeare ones are gone, all the posters in my room are gone; in the garage there's Indiana Jones, The More the Merrier, and The Wizard of Oz, plus the Paris poster and the X-Files poster. The cats shredded the Beast poster, I'm sorry to say. Evil cats.

Oh, yes, and the Star Wars poster by the washer/dryer - that's still there.
