Tea-drinker par excellence

The genius that is Shakira

We're just caught her latest offering on Top of the Pops and it's always worth having the subtitles on for her tracks. Last time round, of course, it was:

Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains

This time, a similar theme:

For you, I’d give up all I own
And move to a communist country
If you came with me, of course
And I’d file my nails so they don’t hurt you
And lose those pounds, and learn about football

She seems to have a chip on her shoulder about the other woman. Lucky, indeed, that you don't confuse her breasts with mountains.
Tea-drinker par excellence

Memery

Name a CD you own that you think no-one else on your friends list does:
How to clean everything by Propagandhi - the finest hour of these anti-capitalist punk Canucks. Possibly not so rare though.

Name a book you own that you think no-one else on your friends list does:
La Methode du Dr Chestel, a French RPG about going into a patient's mind to sort out their neuroses. You can't use violence because that would mess them up even more. If we have to stick to English, what about The Dyke and the Dybbuk by Ellen Galford, Jewish Lesbian Magical Realism, and quite a fun book. If not, I do have a 1968 Southern Region Railway timetable.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that you think no-one else on your friends list does:
Iglesia's Day of the Beast, maybe, Spanish/French edition. I have seen it in English but my brother sent me this, fittingly, last Christmas. It's not quite as fucked up as Accion Mutante but still a very funny horror film, a short of Spanish Evil Dead I guess.

Name a place that you have visited that you think no-one else on your friends list has:
The Jelly Belly factory, Fairfield, CA.

Name a piece of technology or any sort of tool you own that you think no-one else on your friends list has:
I've got a three drum mouli cheese grater. Is there a cooler way to grate cheese?
