Someone is selling writer William S. Burroughs's shopping lists on eBay. How odd. While the lists do contain cat-related items, reflecting Burroughs's fondness for felines, they'd be more interesting artifacts if they also included, say, shotgun shells, scissors, bug spray, and morphine syrettes. BuyItNow price is $495. From the auction description:
Page 1: Items written by Burroughs – 1. Cat Pans. 5. Limes & lemons. 6. Dry Cat Food. 7. Canned Cat Food – Mealtime, bits of beef – salmon dinner. There are 4 items written on the back and none are by Burroughs
Page 2: Items written by Burroughs – 1. Waffles (plain buttermilk). 2. Triscuits. 3. Cat Food Canned. 4. Vodka – last but not least 5. Marshmallow for toasting over stove (?) last word is a guess – hard to read. There are 4 items written on the back – Burroughs has written "Lysol."
