Thursday 19 August 1993
The Poor Existentialist
In spring and summer: from 11am until 1pm sun-bathing at the cafe Flore.
At 1pm: lunch, mostly on credit, in one of the bistros of the quartier. One of these bistros in the Rue Jacob is commonly known as 'The Assassins'.
From 3pm until 6pm: at the Flore.
From 6pm until half past: work in one or other of the rare rooms which the existentialist has managed to hang on to
From 6pm until 8pm: Flore
From 8pm until midnight: Bar Vert
From midnight until 10am: Tabou
On Sundays, the Flore is abandoned for the Deux Magots
On Saturdays, the Tabou for the Bal Negre.
