[via Garance]
Things that seem yellow: maiden aunts, gumdrops, diffidence, the letter H, all women's poems (except Emily Dickenson's), lewd suggestions, debt, the seventies, Nat "King" Cole's song "China Gate," sadness, the Yale English department faculty, the name as well as the country of Brazil, August, the House of Congress, the word "hills," lampshades, physicians, insurance agents, the thin squealing noises of children in playgrounds, political compromise, the state of Nebraska, illness in general, old wagon wheels, whispering, and the vapid name Catherine.
--Alexander Theroux

The vapidity of the name Catherine is a result of spelling it with a C, which we all learned from Anne of Avonlea.
