In the blogsphere today

Starting with Chavez antisemitic statement I started to investigate.
One thing led to another, and I found another internet-persona.

Note that this persona is strongly erotic, more to provoke,
but perhaps some of the politics may appeal.

Picasso

Pablo Picasso was a great artist, and he couldn’t resist a good game, either. At the height of his success, he paid for everything with a check. He had discovered early on that no one would cash his checks since anything with his signature was now art.

Green products
(still very expensive)
trying to find out if they are fair-trade too!

Most of our clothing is made in the United States but for a select few
items
are made in India or Mexico. We do consider fair trade for all our
products.

green tea

all the butterflies came, turning lilac into orange
the tiniest most fragile teapot and cups to boot
the bitterness mixing with the fragrance of flowers

how is it possible to fall in love with the world over and over again?
it's a trial all right, but for all the blessings it's easy to forget.

There is a word for it!

tarantism - An uncontrollable urge to dance.

A. and I are going clubing tonight... he loves to dance, so I am sure I have tarantism urges.. even if I can't dance.

Origin of the use of the word 'tarantism' to describe this psycho-imperative:

The dance is pronounced
'Tar ahn too la'. I'm sure you'd be very good at it :D

I once met a gentleman in Dublin who was doing his Ph.D. on this woman, although given my spongy sense of self, it might have been someone else who met him and told me the story. Anyway, up the Irish! Did you know the real Zorro was actually from Wexford?

Ok, calling it the origin of the word is a half-truth - but there's less evidence to back up the story about farmers in Taranto dancing to cure themselves of spider-bites, so I'm going with the cool story.

Moving house?

Sometimes it is better to remove oneself from the heart of the storm before it breaks forth.

Hmm. I think I need a letter on this one.
