You remind me of my friend Joe - he's obsessed with his list of favourite Jews. I'm not so tied to Jewishness, but my favourite Jews - apart from my mum and granny - are Bob Dylan, Woody Allen and Jonathan Richman. Joe has a much longer list.

If you've ever had a Jewish grandmother/mother, you'll be familiar with the game where you sit in front of the television and occasionally when a Jew pops up, she'll go: "You know S/HE'S Jewish (too) don't you!"

Thousands of amazing goyim will pass by in a stream of unnoticed inadvertency, but all it takes is ONE member of the tribe of Moses, and she pisses herself with excitement.

I was surprised to find Alain de Bottom on the Wikipedia Jew-list. He seems a bit too bland to be a Full-Cream Jew. I think maybe he's just a half-yid.

I think that was the first Nadler I ever laid eyes on and I have never been the same.

Now that learning to knit socks has been checked off my list, living in Nadler's head for a day is next.

I am revising my opinion about birthdays; and how could you possibly have complained!

Luiza said...

Oh yes, my granny insists that Jews discovered Brazil.

There's a lot of love going on in your heart Ms O. Frute. If I didn't know what you'd been reading recently, I'd almost say that you were TOO FUCKING CHEERFUL FOR THIS BLOG!

Mim, I am fucking lucky. And it ain't a print, it's FUCKING WATER-COLOUR!!!!!!!!!

(Though I'd be happy to sell you a print of this watercolour Mim for £50; that's my best Y2Y (Yid-to-Yid) price...
