About this blog

Note: Just about any word can be taken to have a vulgar meaning, or insinuate something that is considered rude by some individual somewhere. I'm not going to go out of my way to avoid any and all potential offence or affront, and let random and/or niche sensibilities constrain me or dictate to me. However, for the avoidance of doubt:


Urban Dictionary offers a (user-contributed, non-authoritative) first-in-the-list ‘definition’ of the the word clut as being British slang for a clumsy person (cf. klutz?), in addition to (and ahead of) CLUT, the acronym for Colour Look-Up Table, which seems to be the most commonly listed (elsewhere) definition of that four-character string of ASCII characters. Not being British, and not having spent any time in the UK, I can neither confirm nor dispute that; but I'll take that at face value, and use it so for my purposes.

Serendipitously, the yen has fallen to something like a five-year low this month; so much the better! So, off we went again.

Almost every time after going on an extended break away from Sydney with my wife (which, for her, means taking annual leave from her work, that her employer usually has to pressure her to take), we — or, more precisely, I — come home thinking, “Damn, I need a holiday after all that!”   Now that she's back at the office, and not merely working from home today, I finally have some peace and quiet, and the space to take stock of what transpired over a very busy umpteen days ju
