This is how he does it

My ingenious Kat getting out through the kitchen window. I probably have to secure my computer and other electronic things before he secretly takes them over.

what students say

so i am sitting in the class, where the students have to prepare and present a news report about anything they found interesting. and so there is this girl reading hers. what i hear, is “scientists have discovered a cloak which they called the curse of the gays…” so i walk up to her to look…

aukstā zupa neātri, jeb kā to dara malēnieši

skatījos, skatījos internetā auksto zupu receptes, bet tādu kā mūsu galā īsti neatradu; un, kā zināms, ‘mūsu galā’ gatavo pašus pareizākos ēdienus (kam nepatīk, lai iet uz savu galu vārīt). Tātad: uz 4 cilvēkiem 4 kartupeļi, ko nomizo un sagriež 1 cm kubiņos vai drusku rupjāk un liek atbilstošā ūdens daudzumā (var pielikt sāli pēc…

upside-down sky with peach-coloured dolphin dreams

peach-coloured sky breathes the pale dust of ships splitting towards heaven. stars creep out from their dents in the firmament, and drop, shooting, growing tentacles, acquiring a life of their own ——————– down down into the endless sea, blue as the night giving it birth. dreams like dolphins surface to breathe, shoot up into the stars,…

random fact

i dream in code. this time it is php and variants of html. i organise my dream sequences, using CSS. i wake up with a New paragraph (<span></span>) aargh.

how linden trees give names

they (the linden trees) are gnarled and crabby, and craggy, and at least a hundred years old. we (the people) are crabby and smooth, and the wrong shape, and too quick to die. they observe us when we come within their range of perception. they think slowly, arboreally. they write their observations into their time-lines…

thanks, wolfie

this is cool. i might start the next term with this. (and yes, i use no capital for ‘i’ – so did e.ecummings, and it is poetic licence)

the joy of marking exams

this year’s undoubted best phrase from an Early New English text analysis: Old Nordic droppings of the [e] were very popular in ENE maybe the Old Nordics were sth like huge horse-like critters who kept excreting sounds. i would not put it past them, either. and then this Middle English was finished because Am[e]rica was…

the division of bed-spaces

this diagram indicates that a cat can be in multiple places at once and definitely takes up more space than its body to the power of three. probably because cats store their surplus body mass in some extra dimension to be collected as necessary.

philo-logically

and so here is the dream: in my dream, i sleep, and beryl the cat sleeps next to me in three columns, justified. with a little quotation in a frame somewhere in the middle of the page. to the music of “erbarme dich’ from st. Matthew’s passion by Bach. … illustrious.

winter as a subject of complaint(s)

is there a season that attracts as many and as contradictory complaints as your plain, simple winter of the northern hemisphere? when the winter is mild and the temperature does not fall under minus ten celsius, they complain about the lack of cold and crispiness. and the ticks survive and infest everywhere.

bez pieturzīmēm

es gribu betona kluci baznīcas kalnā kur rakstīt grafiti un dīvainus vārdus atļauties garāmgājēju acīs tādu lielu, pelēku kluci trīs dimensijās kur uzkrāsot domas un klusumu atstāt ļaužu skrējiena malās

guvernante diversante

Fragments no tulkojamās grāmatiņas. Skat. arī pievienoto video. Devītā nodaļa …Ada paskatījās uz augšu. Tumšā figūra viegli nolēca no margām uz kāpņu laukumiņa. Jaunā guvernante pastiepa baltu roku, ko Ada paspieda. Roka bija ledus aukstumā. “Priecājos jūs satikt,’ teica Ada. “Vari saukt mani par Lūciju,” teica guvernante. “Ceru, ka mēs kļūsim draugi.” Ada nedroši pasmaidīja…

influence of harry potter on the history of english

let it be known now, that “French borrowings are widely used and has (probably ‘have) remained since their introduction. For example, dragon, griffin, hippogriff, phoenix, and others.” sometimes marking exam in the history of english can be such fun.

chocolate

never say that you love chocolate. it will only use this to get into your bed. and it will stick there.

conclusions

it seems there are two types of conclusion: relevant and irrelevant. it also seems, that the two types are inextricably linked. the relevant conclusion from this year’s bachelor papers i’ve read: i need more sleep. the irrelevant conclusion from this year’s bachelor papers i’ve read: crocodiles are not green. the inextricable link between the two aforesaid…
