as if waking up every morning to my lovers the mosquitos biting my neck, weren't enough, it seems the bedbugs are getting in on the action too. see? i knew i wasn't crazy, maji. there are bedbugs in that house!
also, from max (a long time ago, but i'm slow):
According to some anthropology article I read a long time ago, the European gypsies are the remnants of a 13th century Hindu-Punjabi army sent (or possibly hired) to fight against Genghis Khan's Mongols (linguists have traced the various Roma dialects back to Punjabi). I don't know why, but I find this very interesting. See http://www.geocities.com/Paris/5121/vlib/ for more details.
and this is what he's talking about:
** Inquiry into gypsy child wedding **
The Romanian Government and police investigate the marriage of a gypsy king's daughter amid growing anger.
and from homaira, also from a long time ago: An Unlikely Promoter of an Islamic Reformation
and from howard dean, not so long ago: margaret cho for dean!
