I've been here since Feb 2004 - since the inception of this place.


I live in the South Cotswolds with my wife. We just moved here from Bloomsbury, London. My wife is originally from Lisbon, Portugal.


I am Mexican American originally from San Diego, California, from a small town called Cardiff by the Sea. I've lived in San Franciso, NYC and Boston.

I can't even spell väcäpwhatever, let alone try to pronounce it - it's what sets him apart from the other väcäpwhatevers.

Dry. Obtuse. Culture. Citizen. Justice. Python.

Renaissance Man of the vino. Reading capodistria's blog is an experience that makes the breath of the weak (like me) stop in their throats. His life has not merely been examined, but also exalted.

Capo et moi parlent en français de temps en temps. And about physics, too (though not at the same time). How could I remember him otherwise?

I wish I could live in capo's brain and meet the lovely people who live there. We'd swap pies and I'd borrow their books and forget to return them.

capodistria reminds me of camille saint-saëns 'danse macabre' -- technically complex, passionate, and intimidating at times, but altogether breathtaking.

you might think cap has an insatiable appetite for insects, but the bugs in his teeth are merely a byproduct of his love of horizontal sky diving. Yes, that's right, cap is a contender in this years' Rocketeer pro-am circuit. Tickets are on sale now! Get 'em while you can!

Capo's the kind of person that will treat you like you hold the answers to all the mysteries of his soul. Then you realize just how little you know, and it will make you want to cry in a 'spiritual enlightenment cry' kind of way.

capo probably has wiry hair. i could be totally off on this. anyway he has a sexy soap opera name and should be in the writers group. i guess i like him in the way i like cactii.

Like his name...there are many layers to capodistria. I never bothered to keep looking after I saw the first two layers! :oP

A jar of fingers sat on the old wooden table, alongside a fork and three engraved images of root vegetables that never existed.

Capodistria -- to know him is to adore him, but how many of us *really* know him? There are so many facets... a cad i trip so a cardi is top a daric i post a card poi tis a piratic sod a satiric pod capo triad si capo rad is it!
