January 2nd, 2006


Okay then here's a translation

Darn it, I made a few mistakes in the encoding. I got "ah" and "aw" mixed up.

It says:
"Happy New Year!

It's two thousand six (2006), and certain things are going to be different around here. First of ahl, instead of using the Roman alphabet, I'm going to switch to Kingsley Read's phonetic Shavian alphabet. Hope you can read it! (One exception: the names of pawliticians will be written in Cyrillic, so instead of "George W. Bush" ohr "Jorj Dubbia Bush", I'll write "Dzhordzh Dabja Boosh".

Second, I declare you ahl Fawkses. Each and every one of you is now a Fawkes. If you ahlready were a Fawkes, good. If naught, get used to it.

That's ahl for now. Happy Valentine's Day!"

(which is mostly right, except that of course "Fawkes" should be "fox", "ahl" should be "all", "naught" should be "not", etc.)

Niaspan update

Well, last night I took Niaspan the proper way: a low-dose aspirin an hour before, and then a snack just before. It worked! No flushing at all. (Until this morning when I went to the bathroom. :} )

I think LiveJournal is screwing up again. It seems to have temporarily turned my Shavian New Year message into some falcon's usericon.

I'm guessing LJ keeps track of images with an algorithm that sorts them by file size at some point, and sometimes it gets confused if two files are exactly the same size.
