Today's google doodle

Today's google doodle is of Simone de Beauvoir, a woman I really should know more about since I don't mind the feminist label and I am an avid reader.  What really struck me though was seeing the images of her, it instantly reminded me of my paternal grandmother who was part French--something that I probably should not mention since there is a sort of friendly animosity between the English and that country across the Channel ;-).   Unfortunately I didn't inherit much of the inherent French chic from her nor did I get any of the tall, blonde, gorgeousness from the Scandinavian side of my Dad's family.
