Non Sequiturs Ate Marklar from Marklar

I updated 6 hours ago, but I've decided that I should update again. Why? I haven't the slightest idea. Maybe it has something to do with competition, but I don't feel the need to update three times today, so maybe not. I did have this title of a book that amused me when I was in the bookstore on Friday night, but I forgot what the title was so that really doesn't work. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to leave you with the Swedish space ships carrying the fire-breathing tigers to Marklar.
non sequitur (n. NAHN-SEH-kwuh-ter)
1 : an inference that does not follow from the premises
2 : a statement (as a response) that does not follow
logically from anything previously said
In Latin, non sequitur means it does not follow. The phrase was first borrowed into English in the 1500s by people who made a formal study of logic. For them it meant a conclusion that does not follow from the statements that lead to it. But we now use non sequitur for any kind of statement that seems to come out of the blue. The Latin verb sequi (to follow) has actually led the way for a number of English words. A sequel follows the original novel, film, or television show. Someone obsequious follows another about, flattering and fawning. And an action is often followed by its consequence.
Bite me! Mwuahahahaha! I'm writing and people can't see this unless they suspect something's here. Whee! Okay, I really should shut up. And do dishes. Among other things. There's absolutely no reason whatsoever for putting this in a color most people aren't going to see and read, but I felt like it, and that's all it takes for me to do something really. I'm tired and it's 6 am or nearly so by my clock, so I'm going to go away now. Probably won't go to bed for awhile yet, but I'm going to go away from this page, which is a start at least.
