Two Years of TNP

Two years of self-indulgence, affectation and purple prose.

The little Frankenstein I cobbled together here at The New Psalmanazar is a toddler now.  If he still knocks over the furniture and makes a mess of his food, well, that’s only to be expected.  And the smell?  Let him revel in his innocence a while longer – potty training is a second expulsion from Eden and not to be rushed.

I raise a glass of something or other: “To two years – and to you, my friends and readers.  Cheers!”

      That’s how you keep so fresh-looking, eh, Elberry? A sort of virtual reincarnation. I hear that Alphaville song pushing into the chorus…
