Gotham Diary:
Two Boots, Three Cars
1 December 2011

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Today at the DBR: Will tries to fit three train cars into two boots; learns the lesson of WOPR. Also a word about why this blog, the one you’re actually reading right this second, is back. In two words: Kindle Fire. I only wish I knew what that meant.

As you may have noticed…

We hope that you’ve noticed that posting has been frequent at The Daily Blague / reader, and that you’ve changed your feeds and bookmarks accordingly. We hope, too, that you’ve considered commenting at the site’s Fecebook page.

But we really ought not have left it up to you to figure out that our enthusiasm for posting the same entries at two sites, never very keen, flagged into insensibility after the holidays.

Thanks for reading!

We are on vacation! Which means, at a minimum, no cross-posting. Tag along at The Daily Blague / reader.

The Blagueurs apologize for today’s unscheduled non-postings. The Editor has been called away by various family commitments — in today’s case, off the Island of Manhattan itself, which, as regular readers know, he very rarely leaves.

On top of all that, our workspace is in overhaul. We have persuaded the Editor to remove personal and household files to another machine — or, rather, we have persuaded him to buy a new computer (an HP All-In-One — but not the one with the touch screen) for us. The new machine arrived today and will be installed tomorrow afternoon. We’re unlikely to get any work done until some of the dust has settled. The Daily Office will resume on Monday, 27 September.

Civil Pleasures:
New Page Note
Book Review reviews

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Book Reviews reviews, in their umpteenth reformatting since the summer of 2005, have reappeared at Civil Pleasures. We’ve cut back on the block quotes and relaxed our tone of voice, turning up the smart-ass setting a bit — frankly, we couldn’t endure the project further without sounding the occasional note of s-ass.

The reviews will appear on monthly pages, with the oldest on top. After six years, we’re entitled to break with one tradition in favor of another, much older one.
