- I have not once actually typed the name "Eyjafjallajokul" by hand. I have cut and pasted it every time, including this sentence and in the caption below.
- I have no idea how that name is supposed to be pronounced. I have my mental pronunciation (which is wrong), but I have only twice tried to speak it aloud. Disastrously in both cases.
- I can't even hear how it's supposed to be pronounced. There are sounds in there that I can't perceive.
- Regarding the above three points, I don't care. This is still a riveting event to me, and I'm not likely to shut up about it any time soon.
- The idea for this LOL came from Miss Lyd, at Sober in a Nightclub. Her offhand comment cracked me up, and needed to be expressed graphically.
