I had trouble with Rubik's Cubes, when I was young and they first appeared. I felt I should be good at doing one – it was my teenage ego, maybe, thinking, "I'm smart, I should do this." But I didn't … Continue reading

Caveat: Rrrr rr rrrrr!

There is a thing called "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" (ITLAP Day), on September 18th each year. It's not even a new thing – I remember hearing it discussed on the radio when I was still living and working … Continue reading

Caveat: A photogenic bumblebee

I keep intending to write something longer. But then I lose myself in some other undertaking, and I don't get around to it. I'm trying to keep up the discipline of regular blog-posting, but it feels a bit low-quality lately, … Continue reading

Caveat: Sometimes I lay Under the moon

This heartwarming little video appeared in my facebook feed the other day (h/t my own dad – heh). Given that I'm recently returned to facebookland, despite ambivalences, right? I was curious about the song's provenance, because it seemed a good, … Continue reading
