Elephants Never Forget

Mood: very strange; not sure what to make of myself today
Hair: Brain (in)--going to the salon today yippee

OK. Here's the scoop from the BBC.

If you don't want to believe that, here's another possibility: "The original Greek proverb was 'Camels never forget an injury.' It wasn't until the early 20th century that the elephant overtook the camel. In Saki's Reginald of Besetting Sins (1910), it was said, 'Women and elephants never forget an injury'. As elephants have a good deal of intelligence and a fairly long life span, they really do remember injury, as well as kindness." This is from a website, but I can't get it to open except in cached form from Google.

But wait! There's more.

My gosh there's even an 'erotic' film with that title....(go find it yourself, I'm not linking!) ;-)

So that's what's going on with the elephants in the world.
