  1. I’ll join you.

    I’ve always admired your style.

    In many ways, you are my hero. Your everything I wish I could be.

    BTW–I don’t really hate Inception.

  2. Yes, “you’re” rather than “your”. I defend meself below:

    Oft him anhaga are gebideð,
    metudes miltse, þeah þe he modcearig
    geond lagulade longe sceolde
    hreran mid hondum hrimcealde sæ,

    wadan wræclastas. Wyrd bið ful aræd!
    Swa cwæð eardstapa, earfeþa gemyndig,
    wraþra wælsleahta, winemæga hryre:
    “Oft ic sceolde ana uhtna gehwylce
    mine ceare cwiþan. Nis nu cwicra nan

    þe ic him modsefan minne durre
    sweotule asecgan. Ic to soþe wat
    þæt biþ in eorle indryhten þeaw,
    þæt he his ferðlocan fæste binde,
    healde his hordcofan, hycge swa he wille.

  3. WordPress won’t let you post an empty comment, but will it allow you to post an all white comment than no one can readily see (unless they highlight it)? If so, bookish spies would have a handy way to send secret messages back and forth at BigOther—the litblog equivalent of lemon juice and a lighter.

  4. Actually, I think we could do it with this–one of my all time favs.


  5. John, if you mandated that everyone used very tiny fonts in their posts and in their comments, we could fit a great deal more text on the screen, and thereby make it possible to read all the posts at once—maybe every single post since the beginning of this blog! We’d also save a lot of bytes, which are, as you know, an increasingly precious commodity. We might even also save bandwidth! So I think that you should think long and hard about this very important issue.

    You should also think about mandating that we all use fewer letters. In particular, I’ve been concerned about how many U’s Davis has been using (just see his last post! Ninety-seven U’s!). Soon there won’t be any left for me, and I won’t be able to post my thesis concerning uvulas. In particular, the uncannily undulating uvula of Miss Uma Thurman.

    Think about it!
