"...another reason I'm intrigued with the hanged of Salem, especially the women, is that a number of them aroused suspicion in the first place because they were financially independent, or sharp-tongued, or kept to themselves. In other words, they were killed off for the same sort of life I live right now but with longer skirts and fewer cable channels." Sarah Vowell, The partly cloudy patriot.


Lucy will appreciate this...

I was searching itunes for some french christmas carols, and was looking for the title of the song that had a lyric "chanterons noel gaiment"* and it asked me if I meant "Chanterons neal gaiman"?

*that song is "Guillot prends ton tamourin." I was also seeking "Il est nee," "Minuit chretiens," "un flambeau jeanette isabella," and "Les anges dans nos campagnes."

I have a station set up on Pandora.com that supposedly provides all sorts of Christmas carols, but all I ever get is endless repeats of "Un flambeau" :)

And even though I know what it really means, I can't help reading "minuit chretiens" as "tiny cretins" :)
