I hadn't spent $30 on entertainment items in months. I went to the Book Baron, which was having a sale today, and I bought myself a cryptozoology, a volume of Paul Verlaine's poetry and a comic book adaptation of Grimm's fairy tales in all of their old gory glory. When I was at George Fox, I took French because I wanted to read Victor Hugo in the original language. I told my professor this, who was a little old lady in her late 80's, and she and I would meet once a week and talk about Dostoyevsky, Walt Whitman, translations of literature and so forth. She got me into Paul Verlaine. I almost failed French, but I had a great time.
After the Book Baron I went up to Ipso Facto. They had nothing I was interested in. I don't know if I've changed or if they have. I suspect a little of both.
On the way back I stopped by Best Magic, which was my favorite magic shop when I lived down here. I bought a potato gun and a pen that looks like a syringe.
