Well, well, well. The old flee-to-the-US-and-impersonate-a-geologist trick.

Clever, Kingston. But not clever enough!

She got some really good plastic surgery, too. Not nearly as hagged out as usual.

Wrong! To be a geologist you have to be sane.

Perhaps *our* Margo is *this* Margo's Evil Twin? O.O

There's a story in Anne Applebaum's "Gulag" about an escaped Soviet prisoner who roams around Sibera impersonating a geologist, giving lectures. No joke.

Man ... who knew that she was so ... sexy?

Wrong Margo. Actually, it's just that she's been in a serious funk since she didn't get that knighthood for her other job.

Oh, BTW, here's Margo in happier days.

Ah yes, the old flee-to-the-US-and-impersonate-a- geologist trick! That's the second time I've fallen for that this week.

I heard from margo yesterday after fisking Burchills new article on Webdiary.
Margo's been off for a couple of months writing her new book... on "australia's democracy."
Knowing her, she'll write 600 pages about how Howard trusted the US intel in Iraq therefore we don't have democracy. And it's all about the anti-gravity machines.

A useful field of endevour for someone who can produce their own geological samples.

If you read down the bio of the "new" Margo, she says her favorite book is "The Volcano Lover" by Susan Sontag.

Susan Sontag? Maybe New margo and Old margo really are one in the same!

I see she has shaved her beard off. Didn't help though

Posted by: Johnny Wishbone at March 2, 2004 at 11:04 AM

She should have kept the beard. It softened her features.

And there I was thinking all the rocks were in her head...
