Folks, thanks to the discerning eye of our friend Evil Dave, this blog is no longer about the Minks of Arhyalon (Vison) and has returned to the original purpose of being Visions — with the second ‘i’ — of Arhyalon. (A vison is a type of mink. )
And for those of you who are going: “Arhyawooha?” Arhyalon — pronounced Ar-HIGH-ah-lon — is the secret name of the universe featured in the Corruption Campaign roleplaying game, and, hence, in the novels I am currently writing that are based on said game.
And now, for an entirely different subject:
Yesterday, I am chatting with Juss about Ultra Man. He wanted to know things such as who Ultra Man was when he was a hoo-man (Juss always says “Hooman” for Human. It’s so inexpressibly cute.) I had to call Daddy for the straight dope. John even told us what Hayata said to turn into Ultra Man.
Juss: “What else does he say?”
Mommy: “Well, other Japanese words, ” wracking her brain, “Maybe ‘Hi-a!'”
Juss: “No! Hi-a is an English word.”
Mommy: “It’s not English, it’s Japanese.” Thinking maybe Juss was confusing it with another word, such as a form of Hello, “What does it mean?”
Juss: “It means ‘Take that!'” He did a kick and a punch.
And that, folks, is the Melting Pot in action!
PS. The spellchecker does not recognize the word “blog” — oh, the irony!
