Nameless here for evermore

Have you ever tried to reproduce some text that contains a typo? That is, you try to type in some text that contains mistakes, for purposes of mocking whoever produced the original, mistake-laden rubbish?

You know how hard that is?

1984

I read George Orwell’s 1984 sometime during “Junior High”, which in the 1970s was what we now call “middle school”. My district, Adair County R-III, had grades 7, 8 and 9 in their own building.

The school library had a copy of 1984. I was busy reading a lot my 7th and 8th grade years, so I read it.

Everclear

Summer 2020 I bought a Stirling Cycle engine kit. This is a type of heat engine, and in the case of the kit I assembled, the heat came from a small alcohol lamp.

I went to the local drive-thru strip mall liquor store to buy some Everclear.

Fortune Cookies

Presented for your consideration, four fortune cookies I recently got from a strip mall Thai and Chinese food joint.
