Looks like a capybara to me...

BHL is an eminently unlikable creature (always has been) but he doesn't care about what we "mere mortals" could think of him as long as his name (and picture) appears in the press... I must admit that the type of scenario involving DSK would have hardly raised an eyebrow if it had happened in France. Maybe a few laughs (not at the victim but at him for getting caught). Weird (and uncomfortable) when you think the charge is rape. The issue generates noise now mostly because this coming in after he had announced his candidacy for the presidential elections of 2012 does smell violently of set-up. Not that it needs be, mind you: the man is a well documented womanizer and something like this was bound to happen sooner or later.

When my grand mother died, she had a great cellar. She did drink some of it but always got more than needed, or bottles for a famous better day. While it made for a merrier than usual wake, it does seem a shame.

Cook two handful in milk (or cream) with a little chopped mint. Purée and serve as pasta sauce.

I saw some very nice wisteria when in Paris last month...

Just freeze it, Katie. You can use it again later on (on jacket potatoes or mixed as a last second thing on scrambled eggs).
Sounds like you had loads of fun with the prompt!

Most excellent. What a shock!

Magnifique! Merci pour l'adresse. (Et bonjour. Je suis arrivée sur ce blog via Tout Un Fromage.)
Naughty sister. Quite the bully.

Have a few, I'd say. How do you manage not to kill anyone?

You have a great coin of vantage here! What a visual treat (although I must say the sight of your neighbour sitting outside on the window ledge is making me feel dizzy for her).

That is some seriously nasty time you are going through! Hugs. What are those frickles?

Poor kitty! (and poor you guys but, hey, it's HER butt that got busted) Any idea as to why (and how) this happened?

What a great bracelet (and I don't even wear bracelets)! Not that the shirt is bad, mind...

Good luck with today's presentation. I hope the corset doesn't smother you (leather corset not being the most obvious of summer wear articles).

It's both a fascinating and a slightly obscene sight.

Woah. Empty book shelves. It never happened to me (apart from trips to the furniture stores where the exhibition models are rather empty). That is incredible. Like a white canvas, full of potentials.

Kitou was my model before she met the genie. I liked her but I guess I should not have invited her home. The lantern is quite small and hidden high up in the branches, at the back of the garden, but the girl had the weird habit of taking to trees. That’s how she found the lamp. And the upside down genie living in it. She must have thought it was a bat sleeping there - I know I did at first – and she took the lantern down for a closer look. Popping out, the genie gave her a big kiss and a fright, and when she had stopped screaming - and he had stopped laughing - he offered her a wish as compensation. That’s how things got a little out of hands because, for some obscure reason, the girl said she wanted to become a mermaid. I blame Walt Disney. Good thing there is a little pond in the garden otherwise she might have died of dehydration then and there. I had to call friends in a hurry, with a truck to cart her off to the beach and release her into the wild. We were worried for her: It’s not as if she had any prior experience of the ocean. She might think it was just a swimming pool with a permanent sushi buffet but we had the sneaky feeling she might be in for some nasty surprise. We went back every day at first, then every week, now every month to see if she might not reconsider and come back. But she never resurfaced and we are left staring at the rocks in the bay, sipping on our white wine. Memories of her crumbles a little every day, like a part of the beach eaten away by the waves. All I have left of her now is the portrait I finished a week before she met the genie, and the earrings she left behind in my pond.

Very nice. And fear not the full picture loaded clearly showing the model's feet.

That is very good. That face could belong on a Roman emperor statue.
