Intellectual Vanity

Often when I read mindless entertainment like The Devil Wears Prada, I find myself folding the cover back when in public. I do not do this with titles like Les Miserables or The Corrections.

i do that too. there is this series of
books that are the journals of a
14-15 year old in england and they
are absolutely rediculous but i can't
get enough of them. they have titles
like.. "angus, thongs and full-frontal
snogging" and "love is a many trousered
thing." i own them all in hardback and
i ALWAYS take the covers off. sometimes
i feel like i'm letting my brain down a
little.. but not quite enough to get my
hands off them. i can't stop myself :)

There should be an American Idol for "best pet theory", which liberal arts academics come on stage to explain breathlessly to a panel of three computers.
