Pre-Raphaelite Award: Friday

Today's emergency award goes to Nicole Kidman.

Here the Pre-Raphaelite sensibility may find its apotheosis. Kidman is divine. I am going to have to give further thought to Rue's overbite-hypothesis. She sends this links-site so you can make your own decision... It features John William Waterhouse's "Hylas and the Nymphs", one of my favourite paintings on display at the Manchester Art Gallery. I would stop by at least once a month when I lived in Manchester to look through their permanent Pre-Raphaelite collection and had the good luck to be there for a temporary exhibition of Pre-Raphaelite women artists which had some of the best work I have seen. Evelyn de Morgan's "Dawn (Aurora Triumphans)" was spectacular. More of her work can be found here.

This fluffy Flea-topic seems all the fluffier given the last twenty-four hours. Until Steven Den Beste gives us an idea of what happened (he is on the case) this might be my best contribution to carrying on with the work of civilization.

And then... Oops! That's an "underbite"... Rue explains in the comments.

I could have made class. I could have been a contender.

"Rue's overbite-hypothesis"

Correction: I said 'underbite'. This is when the chin appears to jut out and the top lip tucks itself in. The mandible is not properly aligned. Nowadays can be corrected with orthodontics.
