Yesterday I spent a long time sitting on the floor of Green Apple and considering whether Deirde Bair’s biography of Simone de Beauvoir was worth $6 to me. I really liked her biography of Anais Nin. And having this on my shelf might make me look smarter. But in the end, $6 just seemed like too much to pay.
After this we went to the AMC Van Ness, where I blew $8.50 to watch cartoon penguins surf.
I don’t know if I’m comfortable with the label ‘Philistine.’ Maybe just ‘brainiac-challenged.’
