In which I am about to leave the country

Having up to now failed to produce any domestic memoranda but the first, I hereby produce the last.  I am going to use it to introduce a new feature: German Word of the Day.  This one is a reminder to myself.  A very important reminder.

German Word of the Day:

Danke:  This word means "Thank you."  In this capacity it is useful.  It also means "No, thank you."  In this capacity it is dangerous to unsuspecting foreigners, who upon thanking Germans for kindnesses are liable to face the withdrawal of these kindnesses.

Other things:  When I was in Ohio, I visited both Ken State University and Case Western Reserve University.  I read Howards End, a book which I recommend to those who have a calm time in their respective lives which they would like to fill with the reading of fiction.  I took some pictures:

This picture is a billboard for a secret society.  I did not get a pciture of the Illuminati billboard at the next exit.

This is what Ken State University looks like.

This is an Ohio license plate.  Yeah, Birthplace of Aviation!

My dog is super-awesome.  Her name is Shyanne.

I have no idea whither the time went.   I have finished the communication.


The Beginning of my Web-Log


I am beginning a web-log, because I have promised most people that I know to begin a web-log, and because I can be relied upon to do exactly as I say I will do, in all situations and without exception.

Expect daguerrotypes and memoranda chronicling my various and sundry activities to appear here. Viewing these materials will aid you in procrastination...procrinsternationalisation.

An example memorandum: To-day I purchased a ticket for the aeroplane to Berline. I bought it through studentuniverse.com, which saved me $500. Let this be an example to you. I will be leaving from Port Columbus International Aeroport at 13:29 on 27 March. Before that I will be at home in Ohio, whence will proceed the occasional domestic memorandum. Most of people have probably never been to Ohio, so the memoranda will be educational and possibly inspirational.

I have finished the communication.
