Humiliation

Amanda's post got me thinking about the most shameful omissions from my cultural life. Books never read, movies never seen, that sort of thing. Ultimately, I think there are two examples that truly are humiliating. Indeed, they sort of call into question whether I belong doing anything right now other then reading/seeing these things. I have never read Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov. I have never seen Gone With The Wind. I own the latter. I could watch it right now!

Sort of puts the hours of your life spent watching Alias reruns in perspective.
