Resting for Autumn. Sullivans Cove, May 2010.
Once again, an anti-Antipodean decree has confirmed those of us down here at the arse-end of the world
To “celebrate” the one-hundredth posting of the Theme Thursday meme, the Theme Thursday junta have offered the diktat that the topic for the Theme will only appear on Thursday, at 6:00 a.m. Eastern United States Time.
For those in the know, 6 am eating bagels in New York means 8 pm in Hobart bathing children! Given that I have established an 8:30 am/8 pm dynamic of general shot/Henry and Ezra shot, the new format does not really work for me.
Hence, today I share with you my decision to declare throw off the yoke of Yankee imperialism and declare my independence!
Yes people, today I choose my own destiny through selecting my own Theme Thursday topic. Today I have a doozy: POTAMOPHILOUS.
Yes, I very much fit the profile of a POTAMOPHILOUS-type, as all of you will no doubt already know by the sheer amount of photographs that would appeal to the POTAMOPHILOUS among you.
My hope is that other disgruntled members of the Theme Thursday community who also share POTAMOPHILOUS tendencies will similarly liberate themselves from the state of intellectual bondage that they remain trapped in and join me in my celebration of the brave new Theme Thursday by dropping them word POTAMOPHILOUS in blog postings, comments pages, letters to the editor, death notices and so on.
I thank you in advance...
