Caturday’s Astrophenia | Doctors and Dusters: 2016.10.15

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 21.10.01

G’day! I had the cosplay session at the studio on the 25th of last month, but I neglected to take pics! Here is one that the parental unit took before filming began (I look old, just short of 900 years, I think!):

But the filming went well, and the episode should air on the 29th of this month, the Saturday before Halloween. I’ll post links to it on social media, including the next Astrophenia for this blog before regular posting ends. Stay cool, or warm, depending on your hemisphere of residence, and as always…

Caturday’s Astrophenia: 2014.11.22

Well, it’s back. With this entry, the far-too-long long hiatus of this installment is over.

I’ve mentioned before that I won’t be online as much as I used to, and so won’t be posting live on any of my sites save for emergencies. I will, however, schedule entries when I can get the free time to do so, and set them to post as needed and whenever material is at hand. That may mean that they pop up online more or less frequently than currently, preferably more frequently once I’m up to my old pace again.

I took so long between the last edition of this series and this one as I needed to bring myself up to speed on blogging after my WordPress break from late August to early October of this year, and this entry depends partly on use of time-sensitive, datable material difficult to set up for posting on a busy daily schedule without getting reaccustomed to it.  The same applies to the Weekly Gnuz & Lynx Roundup, which will be alternating with this entry once I finalize how I’ll organize it, on Saturdays. One, or the other, possibly, but rarely both for the same day.

My language lessons are coming along nicely, though not as quickly as I’d like. But then, I’m alternating time between three languages, and reason dictates that that’s to be expected. I’m surprised it isn’t taking longer given my dislike of multitasking when I don’t have to. At current estimate, I should have a basic understanding of grammar, vocabulary, and effective use of script for all three languages sometime around the early part of 2015.

I now plan on this entry being specific to this site, as with the Weekly Roundup, and will follow a similar guideline for other more blog-specific entries on my other sites. I want each blog to have its own feel, and that, I think, is the best way to make that happen. Let me know in the comments for this entry if there is anything that you would like to see changed about this series or added, but please keep things civilized and constructive. My cats and I will appreciate it 🙂

Thank you.
