The Moscow Rules

The Moscow rules is the name for an informal protocol on how spies are to behave while undercover on alien territory. They are fake, it makes their psychogeographic crispness even higher.
  1. Assume nothing.
  2. Never go against your gut.
  3. Everyone is potentially under opposition control.
  4. Don't look back; you are never completely alone.
  5. Go with the flow, blend in.
  6. Vary your pattern and stay within your cover.
  7. Lull them into a sense of complacency.
  8. Don't harass the opposition.
  9. Pick the time and place for action.
  10. Keep your options open.

  1. Hello. I wanted to tell you, when I first saw this, I misread your subheading as ".....protocol on how spices are to behave....." - Well, after all you do write a lot about foodstuff, and the Moscow Rules as applicable to the behaviour of spices makes perfectly good sense to me.
    O, the secret logic of ginger and turmeric, the subtle fifth-columnism of tarragon!
    I like your blog. Always good inspiration to be found here.
