I am Dr. Andy Winterthur, a supervisory physician and counselor here at the Shifting Sands Home and "Jeff" is one of my patients. I see he has been enjoying himself here!
"Jeff" does have an unfortunate tendency to slip off into solipsistic allusions and in our session today he referred to several which he has made on your web log. His reference to "a cassowariis astinite" was a reference to "a fabis astinite" 'Eat no beans', advice from Classical Rome handed on by Robert Burton in his famous *Anatomy of Melancholy*.
"Jeff" also *claims* to have noticed that you changed the color of the typeface on your blog so that brown and gray predominate, briefly even changing the color of your post titles! This is probably just a "syndromic image" as we call it here at the Sands--an imaginary or quasi-imaginary conviction which a patient believes in so strongly that he can even "see" in his mind's eye a supposedly experienced event.
We will continue to keep a close eye on "Jeff" and if he gets any more obscure or offensive we will revoke his computer priveleges.
Continued good health to your and yours.
your faithful servant,
Dr. Andy Winterthur
P.S. You aren't by any chance one of our patients here, are you?
