Innocent fun

[Yes, the perpetual reminder: all the EZLN, zapatista and Other Campaign translations are in our Library.]


Friday night, which means in Our Lovely New World, there shall be no news to trouble our little minds, or to drag the big money newsreaders into work, until Monday.

And not a moment too soon, as far as I’m concerned. After all, there are reams of relatoria to be translated, and paragraphs of fiction to be concocted for ruthless, yet fetchingly na├»ve, estate agents in Barcelona.

Speaking of which [fiction, ruthless, reams: take your pick] I’m hoping to have several new sections of YO! Basta up in time for frivolous Sunday reading. Hot photos, breaking gossip, meticulously footnoted op-ed pieces. And we’re also still looking for a Resident Astrologer, of any bent whatsoever.

Now I’m off to celebrate the evening in style, knitting tiny things, plotting whilst I knit, sipping whilst knitting and plotting.

Irl,
YA BASTA! is coming together nicely. It's really great so far...but even though I AM AS INTTUITIVE AS I AM haven't figured out yet how everyone is filling positions as contributors. Each time I enter the Parlour there are still more who have signed up to fill positions to contribute; But where? Was there a signing up for I missed? Is there some secret winding trail that one can only travel after ofcourse having received the invisible ink map, which is only attainable by word of mouth and only during every 7th full moon...promising first in blood to traverse said trail in deep deep cover under a nail thin moon...and a special coded prearranged knock on the door once one arrives at the secret location, a secret handshake, before one can get the skinny on how to contribute to YA BASTA? (lol)...

Diligently,

B


P.S. While using my special edition Cracker Jacks Secret Decoding ring and thinking of how many clandestine handshakes I can make up, awaiting the next finger-nail thin moon in deep deep cover...
