At the right you might notice the description we came up with for this blog. Prominent in said description is the term "athematic". When I suggested it I wanted to say that this isn't going to be a "theme"-blog. We're not here to provide intelligent commentary on Greenday, present vibrating images of Canadian Chocolate (the second site to do so!), or show-off American (or not) swimsuit models (just hit next blog a couple of times).

Instead I wanted to explain that we're just trying to blog, for whatever that's worth. Susan entered "define:athematic" into her Google toolbar and tells me that athematic means "In the Indo-European languages, thematic roots are those roots that have a 'theme vowel'", better yet she looks up "Thematic" at, inverts the results, and concludes that "Athematic" must mean "old" or "unpopular".

I said, "Great!"

ed: after posting this a certain reader-contributor informed our writing staff that the grammar, spelling, content, HTML etc. were all wrong. So we've rewritten this post and would like to thank said reader-contributor.

It only gets worse from here.
