Hi... so where was Oscar Wilde cast in stone ? This caught my eye because I just discovered this past weekend that there is an odd tradition at Oscar Wilde's tomb in Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris... people put on lipstick and then kiss his tombstone to leave lipstick impressions on it. I don't know yet what the story behind that is, but am going to look it up one of these days. We should all be so lucky, to have an endless stream of women kissing our tombstones...

I'm pretty sure there are a few fellas that do it, too. ;)

So, where'd you find ol' Oscar, anyway. And I would say he looks a bit, well, er... precious there, but that's sort of the point, in a totally-not-the-point kind of way...

Don't mind me, I'm dieting again and delirious with the poisons of my own metabolism...

Why, Dublin, of course. Merrion square.

I knew THAT - or guessed it anyway.
