Looks like my last post got screwy on bloglines, where special characters were added throughout the text. Nice. Not sure how that happened, as it is appearing on my blog the right way.
Just wanted to let any subscribers know I'm not trying out new languages and getting fancy with foreign characters for fun.
Speaking of new languages and things that are just stupifyingly challenging, has anyone else read Born on a Blue Day by Daniel Tammet?
It is a riveting self-penned memoir of a 27 year old autistic savant who can learn a language in a week and sees numbers as landscapes... It was our bookclub selection last month and I thoroughly enjoyed it. What a peek into his extraordinary mind.
