Lurking deep - okay, lurking fairly shallowly - beneath Britney Spears' pleather-clad exterior is a twelve year-old girl. The latest entry onto her Britblog is a picture what she found of a tiger and a thing about how she's like a tiger and how they're great:

I'm mesmerised by tigers. Their eyes, their stripes, their constant quest for survival. They almost have a sense of mysteriousness about them.

Almost, you'll note.

They pull you in and make it difficult to look away.

Especially if you poke them with your stick with the horse's head handle.

They make you wonder what is behind their gaze. A sense of eerie awe comes over you when you are in their presence.

And, of course, their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of spring.

I suppose "a sense of mystery" was not quite the phrase Brit had in mind. Her writing has a sense of complicatedness about it.

I also like the phrase "eerie awe". Back in the country (where Britney and I hail from), we used it for callin' the hogs: "Eerie awe! Eerie-eerie awe!" They'd come a-runnin' to the trough, bless their little hearts.
