World Enough and Time

What are these donkeys doing on the front page?
It's a big, wide world out there. We're all over it, you know – from South Africa and the Antipodes, where it's summer, to chilly Europe and unseasonably warm parts of the US (where I've just been out in my shirtsleeves, gloat, gloat), we're all Living la vida local. Please remember to do your part for February's homebody push: write a Guide Entry about your local wonders, take beaucoups1 photos (and send us one at the Post), make up a story about the natives.

Speaking of stories, some of you have just come back from the Manchester Meet. We are envious of the fun you must have had. We're sure you're going to tell us all about it – with pics – just as soon as you recover from Pastey's PGGBs and remember where you put the mobile. Of course, our roving Post Reporter, Tim Stevenson, stayed sober long enough to EMAIL US a late-breaking entry from Lost Transmissions related to the Meet. Now, that's dedication.

In the meantime, there are things to enjoy here: Willem's back with more wildlife (not all of it from this world), Smudger's got a story to tell (always fascinating), and Bluebottle will have you rolling on the floor. There's even another quiz. (No, not more photos.)

We hope you're enjoying the short month, wherever you are. Keep cool/warm/hoopy, and don't do anything we wouldn't do.

Oh, the donkeys? Not commenting on Lufthansa. Just a reminder that wherever you go, there you are. And don't forget to take out the trash.

1Bel pointed out to me that this is bad French. Yup. It's US French. According to the US dialect of French, a la mode means 'with ice cream on'.
