On mwannalagh* (as suggested by Visitor Anonymous)




* mwannalagh is the word for giraffe in Gaelg - Manx Gaelic (the language native to the Isle of Man). I'm fairly sure that mwannalagh is one of the least useful words to know if you ever go to Isle of Man. But I could be wrong. Therefore - you're welcome.

I love your word spacing at the end. That happens to me with my blog. Isn't it annoying?

I never knew it happened with long-hand. But now I know!

*snort* Perhaps my longhand writing has suffered from years and years of typing? Ach. Nice to see you stopping by, by the way, Quirkyloon (I'd feel bad calling someone that, but you said it first...). I really enjoy your blog - my favourite part is the "No [insert (in)appropriate item] was harmed during the production of this post". Cracks me up every time!

Genius. Anonymous was me, by the way... I couldn't be bothered to log in. Which language is that, by the by?

Oh. I'm almost a little disappointed. Here I thought I had a mystery visitor, and then it turned out to be someone I already knew. Not that I'm not happy that you visit. But you know. Mysteries are mysterious. But then again, you can be quite mysterious too, Mark, so I'm not overly heartbroken.

Anyway, the language is Gaelg (Manx Gaelic, the languae native to Isle of Man) - and it is a VERY good point that I ought to include that information. Will do!

There are no limits to giraffe creativity! (I hope)
