In that spirit just want to share a bunch of randomness with you all, including this:
I would so much love to have one of these. This picture comes from a breeder site that I particularly like, they do screenings so they know that their cats are going to the best possible homes. I saw a documentary sort of thing on Animal Planet where they talked about how sleek and agile Havana Browns are, but they are also known for being exceptionally personable and I think they are undeniably gorgeus!
Also wanted to share this recipe, hmmm perhaps I shall also post it in cabbage_capers later...
Yes, you'll need actual roses, red, dark pink, and salmon color work best as they have the most color and aroma.
I know it sounds odd but it is delicious and also a way to make that Rose Garden last longer than the blooms themselves. I have heard good things about Rose Ice Cream as well, but I have never tried any. My big goal for the summer is to make some candied angelica, but I don't know it sounds rather complicated.
Also, I have been thinking about capitalism. It seems to me that one of the great failures of Marxism is that it presupposes an Agrarian economy whereas capitalism leaves a bit of flexibility for example, the U.S. moved from an Agrarian economy to an industrial one and now we have a service based economy. This seems to be a natural progression but I wonder what future economies will be shaped by, what will they be based on?
I have also been thinking about The Wasteland motif. In that spirit I read Eliot's "The Wasteland" last night and I am thinking about rereading the Beckett play. Can anyone else out there (I know many of you are literature geeks just like me) suggest a good piece of literature using the motif... I am in the mood to read some... Also, if anyone has ever read "Bel Canto" (or some other Pound that they found interesting or good) could you please recommend something? I have read some of Pound's criticism, but never any of his actual writing and I am feeling a Modernist tilt, but I have read enough Woolf and Stein for the moment and I am really not into Joyce all that much, although I have been meaning to read Dubliners.
Okay enough with the rambling, must try to find some food. I am still in the mood for cheese fries, anyone want to bring me some? *Bats eyelashes* Pretty please???
