Subtitled: In Which My Life Briefly Becomes Short Fiction Written by Horselover Fat.

Oh, for crissakes!

The day after I talk about the riots in Sidi-bou-Saïd, the creepy old president of Italy turns out to be involved with an underaged belly-dancing prostitute by the name of.... Ruby.

To explain: one of the two main characters Saiibi, takes on an an alter-ego, named Ra'halia, which translates to "Ruby", when she becomes a courtesan and dance-master in order to escape the life of a prostitute. She becomes mistress to the aging leader of her country, and eventually brings down his government.

I'm going to have to trunk this book if the parallels in the news get any more co-incidental.

So, the question becomes... What will happen if I edit it? *briefly teeters on the edge of psychosis*

I think you have a best-seller here barry. Think of it like the Prophesies of Nostradamus.....

Which would be nice if Nostradamus WANTED to write a fat-fantasy-with-maps.

Then again, Italian politics has always had a fantastic element.

Did you ever hear the joke about EU heaven and EU hell? (not that I'm waiting for a "yes" or "no")

In EU heaven, the bureaucrats are German, the police are British, the cooks are French, and the lovers are italian.

In EU hell, the bureaucrats are italian, the police are French, the cooks are British, and the lovers are German.

Bwahahaha. All in good fun.

No, srsly.
