Fishwick Papers: The "Quit Wiggling" edition
I hope you're warmer than I am on this brisk Sydney evening. Since last we spoke, Kirsty and I have moved into our new apartment here in Sydney/Eora. It's exquisite to have a definite place together, by ourselves — in the past two and a half years I've lived in something like nine different places, only one of which has been just the two of us. So it's nice to have a spot that we can settle into for a while.
When I moved to Aotearoa in 2020, almost all our stuff from our flat in Melbourne/Naarm went into storage. But when we moved down there in late 2017, we had put some other things into storage to save space. Same deal when we moved house in 2016. So now we've gotten everything out of storage, and we're trying to figure out how to piece together the echoes of who we were two, five and six years ago, alongside who we are now.
And on top of all that, just the other week I got covit. Hurray! Fortunately, my symptoms were very mild and I'm feeling right as rain again. And coincidentally, it's been raining quite a lot since I recovered, so I haven't even really been able to enjoy going outside again.
Anyway. Enough of that. Time for some links.
Delightful Linguistics Paper of the Week
As a quick interlude: if you're a citizen or resident of the UK, I would encourage you to give feedback on the government's proposal to reintroduce imperial measurements to shops. It takes five minutes or so, and you can do it here.
