Googling things related to your subjects is a bad idea. There is just this faint hint of self justification, which means that while you would play one game of Tetris then stop, you spend longer on Cicero websites or looking at revolutionary manga. And then you have a load of articles in French and while on an average night you would read the new Quicksilver comic or a novel or some Sarah Kane (or for some reason known only to myself the first third of Brideshead Revisited, which I keep on keeping next to my bed) you are there with your dictionary and feel like banging tables. Not good.

...Shall bear this in mind. Do you really think reading Kane in the evenings is good for you?

Reading Kane any time day or night is good for you.

Not if you already have tendencies towards early deaths.

I doubt reading Sarah Kane will encourage a tendency to early death.

May make you want to eat dead babies or roger your son-in-law though.

Because she makes those sound so appealing, doesn't she?

I am more worried by my tendency to re-read Brideshead.

Say what you like about Brideshead, but at least there is a dearth of dead-baby eating.

And why is that a positive?

At least the dead-baby eating is vaguely interesting ...

I like Brideshead because people wander around in parks, and have dinner. I like Kane because you think at the beginning that people will have dinner/talk and then they rape each other and eat babies. I am actually not entirely sure about whether the baby eating is un peu trop de, but it is a brilliant play. Not nearly as good as CLEANSED though.
