¡Gracias y adiós!

I can't remember why I started this blog - most of my translation work has always been from Dutch, French and German - but I guess it had something to do with the various frustrations of living in Barcelona. However, I now live in London, and Spanish official and corporate gringoisms have improved beyond all recognition, so that the blog may henceforth be presumed dead. Many thanks to all readers and (financial) contributors during however many years have passed, and if you still haven't had enough, then you will find that I continue to do things with languages, including Spanish and Catalan, in my new public life as the Singing Organ-Grinder, followable at http://singingorgangrinder.com and https://twitter.com/elorganillero. x

So you think that when our blogs become pointless, we should stop writing them?

I think my problem was that I failed to find new ways of being useless.

I don't always understand your posts but regard the attempt to understand them as a bulwark against senility. So, another one gone.

And to think, I literally just read this: https://thehairpin.com/blog-you-idiots-86995e96d5d5 - and thought 'Yes, it'd be good if my favourite blogs blogged some more'.

Apparently the MSM are closing down comments, so the loonies may yet come back to torment us, and that attention is all we ever wanted. I hope you'll have a look at the organ-grinder blog, which I will try to make a bit more confusing, as per Margaret's. And I continue to work on my own, personal Wikipedia page.

I'm not sure about impulse control. I'm told what I have are tsundokus, and possibly also SUBs, RUBs and ZUBs.

All consequences of ICD. The serpent is everywhere.
