Tick tock...

"We must not allow the clock and the calendar blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and a mystery." -H.G. Wells.

How does one follow up such a great quote? With a food recommendation and a link to a site featuring unusual rubber stamps, of course.

First the food, naturally: Our neighbors across the way are of the Romanian persuasion and at many of their fetes and feasts, this interesting dip is featured. Called Taramosalata, it is served in a bowl along side sliced french bread and finely chopped onions. You take the bread, spread it with the taramosalata, dunk it dip-side down onto the onions, and then, if you are like me, spend the remainder of the party trying to figure out how not to look obvious as you hang around the table indulging in a taramosalata binge. I might mention it goes really well with martinis.

The tattered circus is a very nicely done website by collage artist, storyteller, and apparently finder of pleasantly unusual rubber stamps. Worth a look if for nothing else but to sigh and feel sort of put out all day that other people are really creative and talented while you just sit about thinking about whatever... http://www.thetatteredcircus.com/

And now for some Nyquil.
