nearly half of a person is sitting here

in the infinite loop of doubt and buoyant dreams

the other bit

is currently indisposed, sinking hours into the pursuit of vagaries

and dreams of long rides on an antiquated TGV orient express from zagreb to milan.

so the other bit is kind of pointless

i hope you won't reckon with that assertion

perhaps you will find value in weirdness, appreciation for koalas the height of three apples

perhaps not?

if that does not bother you

please to read more

this blog is important for being good.

ringbo and friends present a guide to italian groceries

i must say, ringbo's second favourite cuisine after belgian is italian. i present to you his favourite italian things:

delicious red peppers

rappini, a fine and bitter veg.

tender and sweet swiss chard

crisp and aromatic fennel

ferrarelle mineral water, a divine naturally carbonated spring water, perhaps second only to the exquisite acqua lete in its quality.

delicious and neutral lamb steaks for the grill

fine mozarella cheese

rich and exquisite fresh cotechino sausage, the finest.
