Tegucigalpa airport today (Reuters)

A short time ago, the Wall Street Journal reported that

ousted Honduran president Manuel Zelaya tried to fly to this Central American nation on Sunday. The provisional government said it would turn the aircraft away, even as it signaled a new willingness to negotiate a solution to the region’s biggest political crisis in years.

Also along for the ride was Argentine President Cristina Kirchner in her official plane and another plane carrying journalists.

YouTube Synesthesia

When you let your mind wander on YouTube, you never know what you’ll find.

Take this perfume channel, for example.  Katie Puckrick interprets the olfactory dreamscapes conjured by her featured perfumes.  Katie delivers the smell to your nose so vividly that pretty soon it’s easy to tell an auod from a patchouli.  But it’s Katie’s way of ambushing you with sex that really sets her apart.   She’s convinced me to track down some 10 Corso Como and ditch my Dune for the summer. Take a look at her interpretation of Pink Butterfly by Hanae Mori and then check out her other videos on KatiePuckrickSmells.

Share *your* secret guilty youtube pleasure or go outside and play.  It’s a nice day.
