Happy eat-salted-lamb-and-split-pea-soup-until-you-burst day. Oh and in case you’re wondering, I’m still off having my existential crisis. I just can’t seem to pass up a blog-op like this, so I’m shamelessly recycling old posts. Meh.


Happy Cream Puff Day! That’s right: this is the day when children spank their parents and get cream puffs as a reward. Just thought you might like to know. [Bolla: bun a.k.a. cream puff. Dagur: day.]

Having been mildly fascinated by that bug movie a few years back [that French one that used all this new technology to film bugs close up – or am I confusing it with […] Read more

The contents of the YT brain

1.Well, sowanso did not win the preliminary elections held by The Alliance yesterday, and despite YT having carted her butt off to the polling station, neither did my preferred candidate. At which I can now stop thinking about this and start not caring again. 2.AAH is home with a fever. Second time in two weeks […] Read more

In which YT’s equilibrium is upset

Ring! The phone. YT: Hello?WOMAN ON OTHER END: Hello… EPI? Is he available?YT? No, I’m afraid he’s out.WOOE: Ah. This is [sowanso] from [sowanso’s] campaign office.
