Posted on January 18, by CaseytheCanadianLesbrarian I recently published a lengthy post reviewing my year in books , but I thought my top eight deserved a post all to themselves. Here are my absolute favourite books that I read last year many published in , but some others older. Let me know if you read any of these last year and what you thought of them! This collection of memoir-ish essays is perfectly up my alley. Where have I been? I found myself laughing out loud a lot but also wowed by how she gets to the heart of things and voices emotional truths. I listened to the audiobook which is read by Irby herself and I would definitely recommend this format. She has a great expressive voice and her dry delivery totally adds something to the experience. In I am hoping to get to her previous essay collection Meaty. Most of the stories feature queer characters although refreshingly none are focused on queerness.
Suffering fools badly!

Maybe the most interesting of all. My first thought after reading your comment was: S2 illustrates the same graph by official regions such as Piedmont, Veneto, etc. And what do we see? Would it be only Liguria, we could think of Genoese mariner and trade relations maybe but Piedmont? I can find no better explanation than an ancient Ligurian link. Austosomal analysis also give them strong Iberian component.
And Corsican does seem to retain a few pre-Indo-European words in its lexicon. Corsicans are one of the number one populations whose overall autosomal genetic results I have been looking forward to seeing for years for the same reasons, but somehow no population geneticist seems to be interested in them, at least not as much as you and me.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn"t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan.
But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here"s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in
Take a map of Europe, or better still, a map of Europe and Asia:
Woman costumes of Caen. Assistant curator of the National Museum of Folklore Paris. English translation by Mary Chamot. An old French proverb says: While the proverb is true where it concerns individuals, it is false when applied collectively the traditional costume does in fact evoke the past life of the social group which wore it for those who can understand its meaning. I will not go as far as to say that national costumes are equal to the history of a people: However, look at the Bresse hat plate Gabriel Jeanton Gabriel Jeanton , the expert on folklore, has shown us that the Spanish duennas wore this sort of top-knot with black lace.
C Irregular — The theme or ground does not fit into any of the above structures. Few pibrochs are pure examples of any of these structures though most can be fit into one of the first three with a slight modification of one or two of the phrases in one or more lines.

This makes a lot of wines to taste and you better plan ahead with the fair"s website to make a choice. The problem is that their website [here the page for the next one in march which is a bit smaller] is not very user-friendly, you have to click repeatedly without ever having for example all the domaines of a given region on a single page, so I usually prefer to go there without planning. It seems to me that in the past they displayed a large board at the entry with the names of participants and the stands location in the fair, I saw none of this this time, but walking and picking randomly the wineries you"ll taste is interesting as well, especially that there is no region order, they"re all mixed up with a Champagne producer standing next top a Languedoc for example.
As I have already remarked, I expect a great deal from the comparison of the traditional and the prehistoric costume.
