Knights of Malta in the Dominican Republic … ar-meisce.com 15th of March, 2006 ANTE·MERIDIEM 11:46
I had the weirdest dream last night; it involved finding out that the Dominican Republic, that chunk of Hispaniola that isn’t entirely hell on earth, was formally the possession of the Knights of Malta, though maintaining democratic structures like elections and a parliament. And the Knights, the Malteser† Ritter as they’re known here, in this alternative universe are not the entire laughing stock (as a quasi-national entity, not as a charity doing good works) they are in our own, and the prospect of Bavarian nobles travelling to this Caribbean island and taking on government responsibility, makes me laugh, for some reason.
I’ve just bought ar-meisce.com and, together with fuсκ.com (note the Cyrillic), that makes two domains I should be doing something useful with that I’m not. I’m taking suggestions!
Word of the day: Олим is Tajik for “scientist” and is eerily similar to the Irish word for the same thing, “Eolaí.”
† Don’t laugh, it’s the normal form for an adjective derived from a place name.
