I have a book for you (but... I want to read it first, so, you'll have to wait a little) And I am on my way back from NYC (bus with wifi are evil), however I'll go away again on Monday, so I hope very much I'll hear from you before, it's been yeaaars since I last "saw" you, are you okay? (miss you, do you want me to kick some monsters for you?)
Yes, and it's not the same for the authors who are dead a long time ago, I don't know, it's as if they had always been dead ^^. And yes, I was already fan of him, and it was in hypokhagne, just before Christmas, it was tragic (I mean... really sad. The thought that ... there would never be new books by him). And I didn't know Fajardie :$ (if you want to listen to an interview of Hobsbawm: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01g4f87 )
Of course I'll visit (I mean... if you want to see me. Or I can come to Aix and hide, also, but that's less fun. Except if it's some Hide and Seek... Ok, it's 2am, here, my brain went dead some times ago, so.... you can blame it for babbling silly things.) (Have you watched Dinosaurs? [that's so not the right place to discuss it ^^])
And, good morning, are you having one of your magical breakfasts?
I've just finished another Jeanette Winterson book (her autobiography), and she is... awesome, I mean her writing, how witty it is and brilliant, and about the importance of books and fiction and poetry and politics and identity and mothers and reading... So, I definitely like her. Need to read her novels, though.
I've only read the first chapter or so, so... as far as I know there are no Fridge but lots of oranges everywhere (and they are not blue), but the way it's written is quite ... interesting (I had read about it in I-don't-remember-what about narrators and variations, and how it borrows from a biblical form all the time, and how it was very modern in the handling of the narrative, and it is, it's like... great.) But as far as I've seen it's about faith more than fruits^^
Soooo... Blue and white stripes, definitely sailor, so both: you like exoticism, South, and hygiene (because sailors' stripes are both practical and perceived as "clean"). As for the rest, I would say: your stripes are inherited from the exclusion stripes (ambiguous characters, heretic [but not pagans]), which have been recreated as affirmation of identity by the Romantics, because really it stood apart as "not really part of the society", bordering on rebellion, and yet a visual sign understood by others... and thus integrating those who wear it. + Maybe something from the musicians' dresses: the stripes both indicate their place in the society, and protect them from the others. + Now : stripes are stylish, so by wearing them, you show your stylish identity :p
And I never had striped sheets, so ... I can't even picture it ! But in the book he says that it's one of the "normal" places for stripes, so I wanted to check :p
