Dog Days


How's things with you?

We're going through something of a heat wave here, or the 'Canicule' as they are called in French (originally from the Latin 'dog days'). Everything has a strange holidayesque sheen to it, made odder by the fact that everyone still has to go to work and schools won't break up for another three weeks.

Barbie collector I was struck by the random memory of an article I read twenty years ago, in the library at school. It was about a an Israeli gentleman who was one of the world's leading Barbie collectors. He had one eye, an eye patch and claimed that he would 'kill a man' to get his hands on the first black Barbie. Anyway, I happened upon this article as I searched for news of this loveable, yet elusive scamp.

How the Babadook became a gay icon - This made me laugh mainly for the reasons given ('he likes closets' 'he enjoys wearing hats')!


Lots of love,
