Speaking of formal stationery - I recently watched a few episodes of the new Jean-Michel Cousteau adventures on PBS. Never mind that I'm generally not a fan of marine life, I adore the whole Cousteau "gestalt."
The tans, the obligatory matching clothes, the adventures on the open seas, the elegant team dinners around the kitchen table with glasses of wine. The relaxed formality is inspiring. Time to rent The Life Aquatic again.
