Good morning, Oulipians! Or good night if that is your fact.
What did you find most difficult during your inscription at this instantiation? To pick an alias without fifth glyph? To draft an introduction or scrawl your portrait's information?
For a fact, I had to think long and hard to find a mail location without that symbol that I scorn...
At a lightning workshop for boards. Sorry for my lull.
I think oulipo is taking this injunction against naming JK Rowling's big bad too far.
"And Mammoth Mastodon shall not go by,
From this day to a conclusion of our world,
But you shall in it think of us,
Us not many, us hardly many, us band of kinsfolk;
For who today that has his blood in Mastodon with I
Shall I call my kin."
--"2nd King of Lancast'r, fifth by his call" by a bard known as Scuotilancia in Britain
Not a light thing to do, to put a Bard's words in oulipian form in a lingua not my own. Sorry to all fans of Stratford-upon-Avon most illustrious son!
Basilicum and ananas salad:
1. A bunch of basilicum
2. Add bits of ananas
3. Moist with not much infusion (black lipton will do)

🇬🇧 Who complains about how hard it is to draft without fifth glyph should try it in Gallic!
🇫🇷 Dur un manuscrit anglais sans tabou? Hasardons l'anglais!

skk n'arrivait pas à dormir. Il alluma. Son Jaz marquait minuit vingt. Il poussa un profond soupir, s'assit dans son lit, s'appuyant sur son polochon. Il prit son Mastodon, il l'ouvrit, il lut; mais il n'y saisissait qu'un imbroglio confus, il butait à tout instant sur un mot dont il ignorait la signification.
