Fire (eld, masculine uncountable) was never created. He (Han) started to burn (brenna) in the Darkness (mørkeret, neuter) long before the first ash (ask, masculine) took steps. He, fire, raged (rasa, infin. å rasa). He leapt (sprang, å springa). He consumed (gnog, å gnaga) the darkness. He danced (dansa, å dansa) into Its embrace. Reaching into the coils (spiralane, masculine) of darkness, Fire … Continue reading Story Time
Hej! Nynorsk will be available tomorrow: I have been watching, and reading the Dr. Ford's testimony. My apologies.
Tea: Papaya/Black Tea blend Song: No song. I am enjoying an awesome Caesar salad that I made though with homemade croutons. Before I dive into this incredible collection, I should be honest: I know Professor Hollander. Not well, obviously; however, I took her classes multiple times at Lyon College. As such, even 6 … Continue reading Blue Mistaken for Sky: A Review/Reaction (with one personal story)
Basic Disclaimer: I am not a native speaker. I am using these posts as a way of chronicling a semi-auto-didactic process. In other words, this is my way of seeing my own journey. I hope that others learn from it, and I hope that others contribute knowledge to it. To the Nynorsk activists out there, … Continue reading Nynorsk: The Harvest
Tea: Organic Earl Grey Hello, ruminants. I apologise for the last few posts. Life went crazy for a bit. I have been ruminating something for quite awhile, however. Grab a cup, and hopefully we can get back to our normal programming. One can see that I have a dash of European blood. I could … Continue reading Tea Time Ruminations: What is the Point

I will talk more about them in a later Tea Time. Remember that they are … Continue reading Nynorsk: Favourite Languages
So, my boyfriend, and I have both been working quite a lot. We needed a date night. It was amazing, but time slipped away from me as I drifted asleep at 2130! I have gotten that old! We went to see The Nun, and it was okay. I am terrified of the demon nun in … Continue reading Tea Time Ruminations: A Wednesday post?
Well, I went shopping for books yesterday, and I am glad. Today I need the pick-me-up of a good book. Books ( bøker) are those which get me through the day; however, presently I will use them only as examples. One will see that two of the three are books of poesi (m), or diktekunst … Continue reading Nynorsk: Books!
Tea: English Breakfast (my favourite) for a very specific reason. Song: A podcast about whom at least/around half of this is. First off, welcome to September: the last few weeks of summer are here. If one is waiting for me to discuss my September books — like Summer — my August reading is unfinished. I … Continue reading Teatime Ruminations:A Semi-Religious One
Nynorsk is quite an intriguing concept. It is the concept that a standard language can be achieved through rigorous linguistic study, and that a people can be united under it. That concept of a culture united intoxicates me. I find myself chasing it in my dreams -- awake, and asleep ones --. The idea that … Continue reading The Life of a Bird: A Musing on Nynorsk
