Redefining misanthropy for a fresh generation. Standard posts begin with a definition from Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary followed by a modern adjustment. Miscellany on Wednesday and storytelling on Saturday.
"a wink at each of his men.... I think we're the ones being winked at.Wonderful episode. This is so much fun.
And FIRST! All others having tired of checking and re-checking your blog today....
It was the wink AND the nectar of her perfume, on this first and last acquaintance with Leili:) I wish I could visualize these dresses!
TLP, first suits you although the competition's light today.Actonbell, if only I knew a thing about clothes. Remember the guards were sent back for the various colored silks and, um, picture the dresses from Cana in those colors and we're there.
Never underestimate the power of a wink. Especially the wink of a beautiful, well perfumed woman.It's good to know that Leili has her dress. It was quite an ordeal to get it. Taylor came through! Or was it the tailor that came through for her?:-)
Awed, the guards stood as the princess rescued herselfwith her wits and a wink.
Um, any idea what that perfume was? Or where it can be purchased? xoxo
JD, would you wear a dress your son made?Quill, A thousand wordsHave already brought us peaceNone written as haiku.Mireille, is there a Persepolis? It might be that.
"Historical Background of Perfume & Perfume Manufacturing in IranBy: M. Hossein Abrishami...In stone images of Persepolis Darius is shown while sitting on a nice chair with two scent bottles or incense bones in front of him, and Xerxes is standing behind him..." Boy, you are good. xoxo
I'm better than good, Mireille. I'm lucky.
Doug, I am confused.Wasn't my haiku wanted?You did ask for it.
Quilly, well you knowThat the art of the HaikuNettles Erato.
Sounds like the dress for my wedding :) Loved this episode - I too wish there were pictures of the dress.
It boggles the mind.Erato, weaver of love,And The Dawg equate?
Divine as always.Your research skills, and or imagination, surpass mine, as does your storytelling of course.
g, your guess is as good as mine. Bill Blass I ain't, whoever that is.Quilly, considerEros is the Greek God of loveErato, just a muse.Nonsense, Cooper. Pretty sure I didn't win by research.
Erato named for Eros,Wove the strands of lover's lives,Until a sister snipped.
That Kassim needs to get "in touch" with a few more women. maybe you could show him Tuesday's word ;)Bugger, I can't hear you read this story. Part of the fun goes away.I believe the final episode is coming up next Saturday? Well, everything has its season I guess.
