this is Gunnit, my girlfriend’s cat & my roommate. He just bought his first book In Defense Of Lost Causes by his favorite slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek, by way of gnawing on the cover last night, a book which I had borrowed from the San Francisco Public Library.
$27 later in damages and we own it !sweet!*groan* i wish he gnawed on a cheaper book
none of the pages are destroyed, it’s just the cover (and a boring cover) but the library said they can’t keep it on their shelves, and none of the local bookstores would buy it off me.
yes I tried to play dumb, saying there was maybe a mouse in the dropbox.
yes, I could’ve used that $27 in my bank account.
yes, I’m aware of the irony in the book’s title.
so if anyone in San Francisco wants it, just txt me Eight Five Eight - Three Five Four - One Nine Three Nine
if you live on the internet, contact me and I’ll sell it to you for just the shipping cost via paypal
really interesting read about the stages of revolution and how dictators and authoritarians get lost in their egos, principles, paranoia and mass murder problem-solving strategies along the way. probably not recommended for knee-jerk liberals
