What nourishes me destroys me

In another interview, Jolie was asked the origin of a scar visible across her stomach and dismissed it as being 'from my experimental stage. You know, you're young, you're crazy, you're in bed with a knife - shit happens." Little wonder Angelina Jolie wears a tattoo bearing the legend: Quod me nutrit me detruit - What nourishes me destroys me.


Hey! MTV is playing a Clash video called "Rock the casabah". Al says casabah. Wonder what that means. Speaking of which, I like the song "Written on my heart" (I think) by The Cult. It's from the Gone in 60 seconds soundtrack. I think I wanna see that movie. I heard Angelina was even thinner than in Girl Interrupted. I've only seen her in 3 movies...Girl Interrupted, The Bone Collector and Playing By Heart. She has a tattoo that sayd "Quod me nutrit me detruit" (spelling? eeek) which means "What nurtures me also destroys me". -

whatever you prefer.
