…why the title?
It came from my sister, Bird. I was telling her about the contents of this antique book I had just bought, The New Book of Fairies, which included book fairies, bread fairies, soot fairies, and grammar fairies. “Oh,” said Bird, “that explains you. Maybe you’re a changeling and the grammar fairies left you for us.”
…what is this blog about?
Oh, this and that. I’ll figure it out at some point, I’m sure, but for now it’s sort of a Pensieve, if you will.
…what’s a Pensieve?
Go read Harry Potter.
…what’s with the weird pseudonyms for people in your anecdotal posts?
Although I might very well start blogging with my own name, I don’t know how all of the people in my life would feel about being introduced to strangers on the internet. So unless I have their express permission to do so, I will not use their real names but will instead make up pseudonyms based upon my own identifiers for them. You’re smart. You can keep track.
