Horst, Is That You? From Seattle Craigslist.

Like so many struggling Lit types, I'm here in Seattle for the MLA convention. For better or for worse, I'm also here as part of a search committee--yes, one of the unloved gatekeepers. As you might guess, being on a hiring committee takes its toll, and I'd like to meet up with another Lit type suffering through the convention in order to to decompress: search committee, candidate, or panel member, anyone needing some human comfort. Disciplinary or theoretical approach doesn't matter, as long as you seek some quiet escape from the convention.

CL being CL, please include either the word "De Man" or "Derrida" in your subject line.

I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. I thought it was "da man" at first...

  2. That guy (and I'm sure it's a guy) wants to have anonymous sex. And he doesn't care with whom, so long as they are relatively respectable and aren't likely to kill him or get him arrested.

    It's not Horst. Horst would have had the decency to procure himself a very nice whore. And he could get a not-so-nice one for what he paid for breakfast.
