Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

with less effort. His glides ended not with the usual feet-down splash

I liked "old-womanish night partridge" and noticed that a mere change in punctuation could yield "Out Timon with less effort" and wondered how Timon might feel about that.

Yeah, the language fascinates me, perhaps more than it should.
