it's no fun to be yellow

"Boy, when you're dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody."
Holden Caulfield. Undoubetdly my favourite character of fiction (Hamlet aside). I have had such a strong desire to re-read The Catcher in the Rye for a while, only my English degree permits me some Shelley, Shakespeare, Dekker & Jonson and not much else for the time being. Albeit, wonderful fellows to be in the company of, non? xx
