A Baroque love letter ...

The delicious Katy Evans-Bush who writes the Baroque In Hackney site has been kind enough to name Madame Arcati as one of her favourite blogs on Normblog. She has evinced unfailing good taste and judgement throughout the time I have read her and this latest development maybe regarded as confirmation. Why she hasn't a newspaper or magazine column yet (I presume) is a sad commentary on the state of mainstream media where the hereditary or cocksucking principle appears to be regnant. Nonetheless, even remunerated editors experience the odd moment of eureka!, so watch that Baroque.

Really, Mme A, that is just too swell of you.

Anonymous, you know, I think of you as a sort of supra-natural force - like a wind that blows always around the blogosphere: whever I see one of these type of comments it is you, Anonymous, who are making it. You seem able to whoosh everywhere at once, seeing into everyone's little human foibles and pronouncing on them with a detachment that truly marks you out as an über-being.

I just feel sorry for you, dear Anonymous, that the price of your all-seeing greatness is that you can't have a name... unlike me. Mme Arcati, of course, is another of the great über-beings, though of a different sort.

Yes! I'm a hidden minor god, the arbiter of elegances of this fancy dress ball. Susan Hill is the naive Alice in Wonderland, Ms Baroque is the touching eighth wife of the Bluebeard, and Duralex is the always drunk and horny horned satyr. Madame Arcati, of course, thinks she's the terrifying Mask of the Red Death. But actually the one who pushes the pawns is a blind chess player.

Let the party go on!

Susan Hill said...

Naive ? Moi ?
Well if I still am at my age, then that`s it for life I suppose. Hey Ho.

Prince(ss?) Prospero surely ...

Tabernak, that's me exactly ! As for Susan Hill, with all the respect I owe her, I'd rather see her as a British version of the Thanksgiving turkey. :-)))
