-Mahatma Gandhi
Segal's Law:
A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure.
"Well, art is art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water! And East is East and West is West and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste more like prunes than a rhubarb does. Now, uh... Now you tell me what you know."

Not bad for a weblog with a name that sounds like a cosmetic.
In honor of my having this page for almost a year now, this post marks my first foray into metablogging. Every so often I indulge in a bit of recursive voyeurism and peek through my secret periscope to see what search phrases people are using to find this page. Here are some of them:

1. actress drisha

2. letters ihum

3. jewish glosses

4. rose parade radio broadcast

5. why isn't kant an existentialist?

6. picture of lido cookies from pepperidge farm

7. philosophy's human drama

8. yeats "walking naked" poem meaning

9. plinyl floor

10. halacha door-to-door

11. "pepperidge farm" delectables

12. "ruckus room" "rumpus room"

13. "who broke my window?" LDS


15. "round green rug"

16. victorian ladies + sore bottoms

17. white food turnips camphor sausages inspiration

18. figuring your colored contact

19. schitten ritual

That last one really piqued my curiosity, so I reproduced the search, and found a lot of pages in German that I didn't understand, with the exception, of course, of my page. What I found most amusing about this, and the real reason why I'm writing this post in the first place, is what happens when Google translates my page into German. From what little I know of the language, it seems to be a fairly accurate rendition. Check out the word for "hair elastic".
