I'm also now the proud (and perhaps foolish) owner of a unicycle, so learning to ride it is the other thing I'll be doing this weekend -- unless it rains too much.

This arrived today. I'm really looking forward to reading it! Unfortunately much of it is excerpts from novels, but it's still a great way to get introduced to authors I don't know and a cultural imagination I'm not familiar with. :)


I have discovered that Schwa has a (sort of) Great Red Spot. Maybe Jupiter is his name?


Here's the lovely fellow I brought home yesterday. He's staying separated from the other cats for now, which means I woke up every few hours last night to switch rooms because someone was complaining. 😛

He's a bit unhappy because everything smells like the other cats, but I think he'll settle in fine. But he's also pretty assertive -- definitely not a Schwa!

Polyglot City

Polyglot City is the right instance for you if you're interested in linguistics, languages, language learning, or translation, or if you're multilingual or polyglot. All languages are allowed to flourish on our timelines, and multilingual puns are welcome. And of course you're also free to talk about other things besides language.
