A Conversation on Jean des Esseintes

“Then what do you look for in a man?”

“Anemia. Wan, anæmic good looks. If not that, then at least a careless decadence coupled with an archly diffident attitude towards my interest.”

“So, big?”

“You know that fin-de-siecle aristocrat who threw a sarcastic funeral for his penis and sneeringly invited all Paris society? That guy.”




On a day like this I really wish I knew German. With German, you can sort of Frankenstein together new words to express unusual or awkward feelings/ideas. Right now, I really need a more elegant way to say “horny for thunderstorms”.
