G’day, and happy Caturday to you all. I’ve been working on increasing the already disgustingly large number of blogs I own, with the hub page for all public sites here, recently updating its theme to something a bit better. This Friday, I finally got around to creating the first of my private venues, here. It’s for material and tone that not only won’t fit well with other blogs, but also may be a bit…controversial…in a public forum.
I won’t be shy of expressing myself on this site, and neither should its readers. I do require that any discussion adhere to some level of decorum, and that all debate when it occurs be bloodless, honest, and relatively civil. I’ll follow that dictum as well. It is a blog, after all, not a warzone, nor the halls of the U.S. Congress or state legislatures.
Readership is open, and if you’ve any interest, feel free to hit me up by email or a comment on this post for an invite. That goes for any further private sites as well, as needed. WordPress might be a bit of a bastitch, and might not notify me of any requests made to the server.
I’ve got things planned for the week ahead, including some of the learning tools I’m using to learn Tamil, which I’ve been having a lot of fun with. I’m currently mastering the vowels in the language’s script, and the pronuciation of its syllables.
My evil cats have been doing quite well, and both of my boys are featured below, in this post. Stay cool, stay brilliant, or in a dialect of Kai’Siri spoken only on the edge of the Sagittarius spiral arm of the galaxy:
