Oh that's awesome...somebody came to my drawing site looking for "jaden drawings."
  • Mēgan's Dictionary - That's right...I've started my own special dictionary. It's pretty bland at the moment, and far from complete. But I'll be concentrating all my efforts on it for a while, and will add more words as they come up.
This weekend is Mosaic. I've only ever been to it once, when I was significantly younger. And then a couple years ago Amy and I helped our cousin man his chainmail booth in the English pavillion at the Saskatoon Folk Fest. That experience was dominated by this, "Angel" from the crazy fortune-telling booth beside us (my gosh, when she bent over her entire upper body disappeared! It was truly remarkable). And also a bus ride with a bunch of loud drunk people.

I really wish he'd kept the picture of her bending over from behind. Bench bottom!

I think the word "Uterati", as in The Uterati, should be part of a dictionary. I don't know entirely what is means, but it sounds feminist and sinister. And I made it up a couple weeks ago. I haven't had a chance to use it though. Yet. But I know they're out there.

So members of The Uterati would be called Uterists?

A movement of freethinkers that were the most radical offshoot of The Suffrage — whose adherents were given the name Uterati (but who called themselves "Femniibilists") — was founded on May 1, 1776 by Jesuit-taught Madam Weishaupt (d. 1830), who was the first lay professor of Uteran law. The group has also been called the Uterati Order, the Order of the Uterati, and the Bavarian Uterati. In 1777, Karla Theodor, Elector of Palatinate, succeeded as ruler of Bavaria. She was a proponent of Enlightened Despotism and in 1784, her government banned all secret societies, including the Uterati and the Quilters.
