Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

Generally speaking, I favor the direct approach. Something like, "Do you want to ______ ." But I'll make an exception for the drooling Slovenian any day. There's nothing like a little intellectual lubricant.

Yay for Slovenians!

Oh, my goodness. You're one of them, aren't you?

Of course I am. What other sense can you make of my last name? In fact, my father once applied for minority scholarships at OSU based on his 100% status. Not many can claim that ethnic identity.

But you look nothing like Zizek!

(Seriously, I remember you talking about your ethnic heritage. Last night, however, we had nothing but Slavoj, the Rolling Stones, and champagne on the brain.)

I have a strange relationship to it anyhow; in my memory, it is my grandparents speaking Slovenian, the Slovenian fish fry on Friday nights, and polkas. Besides the language, there was nothing uniquely Slovenian about it, and it seemed to be part of a larger (must still minority) culture in the Cleveland area of Eastern European immigrants. The good news, however, is that I'm good at pronouncing tricky names. There is just NOT a SKI at the end of my name, dammit.

I love reading about that Midwestern ethnic culture. It's lacking out here, obviously. Much less diversity within our quantitiatively multicultural reality.
