Up Time

The Staff of Your Inner Rhino is back, transformed by a bit of leisure. What happened to the T-shirt We cannot say.

We have kept the balloon as a souvenir (see: ‘Down Time’ below), at least in spirit.

Much easier than trying to find it later and repair it, right?

A word by any other name

Today is the birthday of Mr. Peter Roget, 1779. He is best known for his Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (1852). It seems fitting that this is also National Thesaurus Day. Words and more words, all displaying the rich and varied nuances of language.

Rhinos have a system that is similar for making distinctions of tone and emphasis, but it defies translation.

That being the case, We will simply press on.

Le Maitre

Moliere (b.1622) is possibly the greatest French playwright ever. His works have been produced around the world, in his own day and in ours.

Rhinos are all for him, despite the fact that the culture he wrote about is long gone. Human nature seems not to have changed much, so his work is still interesting.

A brief catalogue would feature Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Learned Ladies, The Imaginary Invalid, and The Miser.

Toutes nos felicitations.  (If you add some accents to that, it’s French.)
