me, Marmo and Sandokan!
More Happy Birthday from Marmo and Sandokan pics.
Call for Mummies
Okay, Halloween's almost here (well not really, but October 31st will come!) and that means it's time for me to geek out with another 31 Days of Halloween Madness. Similar to last year's Halloween Skull Mask Project, this year I hope to get a little reader participation help.
La Settimana in Review
Hey Euro-land, watch out! I got me a bona fide Italian passport. No plans to hit the continent just yet though. I seem to be having plenty of fun right here in good ole Inghilterra (despite the rubbish weather).
When not admiring the latest paintings by tikiracer or engaging in lightsaber battles with the fluffy-wuffiest Jedi ever, I was freakin' out over giant balls of opium and creepy dolls in haute couture, raving about my new favourite London restaurant, sampling cheese, sippin' rum and generally having a good time.
Besides, who needs to visit the continent when those friendly continental-types are kind enough to bring over some of their finest booze to try here in London?
Another nice batch of London Daily Photos managed to get posted this week, included a few by London photography A Glass Darkly. Make sure to check 'em out.
Enjoy your weekend,

Good news for fans of tiki art. Tikiracer's been painting! Here are some samples of his recent (and phenomenal) work.
This Week I Wrote about ...
... going to Paris ... taking photos in Beijing ... taking video of the Olympics stadium and architecture in Beijing ... defending the honour of my neck of the woods ... chowing down on Farringdon Road ... riding on the London Eye ... moseying along in the treetops at Kew Gardens ... trying gourmet Asian ready-meals ... taking our little kitties to the vet ... sampling some fantastic cheese ... and getting kinky with Qype.
I just happened upon this incredible video of a live performance by Otis Redding moanin' and pleadin' his way through My Girl. Everything about this clip is perfect. The dancing is particularly mesmerizing. And Otis was just so damn cool ... and from my home state of Georgia (yeehaw!). This video has inspired me to look for more classic songs by brilliant musicians from Georgia - watch out y'all!
Kitty Witty Week in Review
We got cats. That's the big news this week. Two 10-week old ginger kitties, which we've named Marmo (the Italian word for marble, a reference to his marbled fur) and Sandokan (as in the coolest Malaysian pirate ever written about by an Italian novelist - although our Sandokan is proving to be the definition of a scaredy cat!)
Read more about Marmo and Sandokan - and see a gazillion photos of 'em here.
Anything else? Yeah, a lot of boring non-blog-about work, another weekly installment of London Daily Photos, and some modern gin-based cocktails in a medieval setting.
