Earth Hour 2014

Earth hour 2014

What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and wildness? Let them be left,
O let them be left, wildness and wet;
Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.

– Gerard Manley Hopkins –


92 “Truths”

So… er… hello everyone. I haven’t been around much. Now I’m back with a super-long text post which is possible the lamest way to return to a poor, ailing blog. I will still finish the Shakespeare cartoon series, but it’s really hard to do that and try to keep up with all of my academic work at the moment.

Anyway, I stole this post from Beth over at Hear a Snippet Here, whose blog name I invariably type as “Here a Snippet Hear”. And I wrote this on Thursday night – I did not have class today! (more…)


Thoughts on a Wednesday that I really don’t have time for.

… a.k.a.: why there isn’t a cartoon today.

The short version is that I am too busy writing a Shakespeare assignment to draw Shakespeare cartoons. But that is not very interesting, is it? It’s true though and I have two assignment deadlines right now, actually. One is for the fourth and for the eighth of April. I don’t have time for having time, but I’m still writing this.

Several semi-interesting things and several not-so-cool things happened lately, so I thought I might as well write about them. So that you can be prepared in case any of them end up in cartoons in the near future.

Scar tissue

I don’t quite know how to start this. As I didn’t post on Wednesday – I had too much homework – and then on Thursday I just plain forgot to do anything about a cartoon, there are still a few things I need to say.

 

I’d planned to tell you the last installment of my tale. You’ve heard the beginning part far too many times around here, but you haven’t yet heard the most recent development. When we last touched on this tale, I wrote the “Fifteen years later” letter. This letter led to a very unexpected development. (more…)


Things that are slightly interesting that I forgot to say

So after Wednesday’s long, rambling, text part of the post, there were still several things that I’d forgotten to say. In fact, these things were probably more important than my complaints about ineffective call centres, but they are still not very important. This is, therefore, just a general blog-housekeeping post. Let us hope that it is more effective than my real housekeeping. If you don’t believe me, have a look at the mess of homework that’s on my bed right now. (more…)
