"Abandoned at birth, little Jack, who is one of twins, was rescued by volunteers at Manor Farm Country Park, near Southampton, Hampshire.
Concerned about the risk of the tiny new born perishing in the cold weather, volunteers at the farm did all they could to keep Jack warm.
Mr Davies said: 'We brought in some hay bales and a heat lamp for him - then one volunteer had the novel idea of giving him a jumper.
'She trawled all the local charity shops and was lucky enough to find a knitted wool jumper among the baby clothes.'"

the namesake of this blog came from the phrase "To whom do i give my new elegant little book?" which is a rough translation of "cui dono lepidum novum libellum" from the poetry of Catullus.
I didn't know this.
when i picked that as a name i was just looking through translations of Latin phrases and plucked it.
but now that i know it seems pretty perfect.
"Catullus knows very well the quality of his poetry, and also the provocative form it has. He also calls his work "new"; the poems are recently made and therefore new, but they are also new as some of the first examples of Neoteric poetry in the Latin language."
That reflects the way I feel about this blog.

i have recently decided to boycott Urban Outfitters.
i am not a chump.
i am not going to buy some anti-war, hippie shirt and give my money to Richard Hayne:
i am not going to buy some played-out kitschy balonnnney for 40 dollars when i could buy a higher quality ugly shirt for 4 dollah at my local Savers.
BUT, If i had the cash to drop on said played-out kitschy balonnnney i sure as fuck would not.
because if i had mad dough and spent it on urban outfitters clothes and not oscar de la renta i should be shot,
