I was just looking around the innertubes for ideas about what to do with all this anise seed I happen to have. Probably I should toss it, because it's old, but it still smells good and that has to count for something, right? Anyway, the point is that the latin name really tickled me: it's Pimpinella anisum. If I were a drag queen, I might choose that for my name.
Also, "Celtic Thunder" is even more of an abomination than "Celtic Woman." Just saying. Can you tell I usually blog in front of PBS? It's true.
