So very very annoying...

Ah, the most frustrating thing! I'm reading a very long series, and the library runs out on volume 11. So I go on the internet, and read 12, 13, and 14. And then, I find out that the author has stopped writing the series and no one knows when she will finish it. Arrrggghhh. Has that ever happened to anyone besides me? Also, even more annoying is that my sister and my dad get to go visit Utah... they just left a few hours ago... and I can't go until next summer... Haha all right done with that rant. :) Laga, Sol, I'll just have to wait to see you guys.

In need of good literature!!

I am in desperate need of good literature! A couple days ago, I actually gave in and read a couple pages of Twilight... help me!!!!!! (Sol, Laga, I know I used more than 3 exclamation points... but it was necessary in order to express the fullness of my malnutrition of good books. ) Does anyone have any good books that they would like to recommend? Thanks!

Odin's 2nd Post (Finally!) =)

So sorry it has taken me so long to get another post going, but you know how things get around this time of the year! So, here finally is Odin's long awaited second post:

Calling all founding cuh-nig-its! The time is long overdue to get together and catch up and just have fun without an overlying mission, however important, occupying our minds! I, personally cannot believe how quickly his year along with the two great missions it contained went by! On that thought, baldr, how did your grade go from the knights latest odessey as you called it? I find it so amazing hat christmas is already only four days away! this is always my favorite time of the year, with the scintillating tree, presents ( the best part is the crinkly wrapping paper!!!hehe!!!) and best of all the spirit of giving! I am proposing that, in keeping with the holiday spirit, we all post something worthwhile we have given to this holiday season. I will start: last week, I donated several pairs of gloves, two pairs of ski pants and a ski jacket to hose less fortunate:) keep this new challenge in mind and merry christmas everyone!!!!!

Thank you, Mira, for an exceedingly enjoyable post. =) You make me smile! Yes, happy Christmas, and also happy belated Chanukah and happy early Kwanzaa, and all the other holidays that abound this time of the year. And let it snow, as soon as school ends! It took me over an hour to get to school this morning and I have two+ feet of snow on my roof. Mira probably wants it to snow as well... here's to you, Mira! Snow! =)
Lots of Smilies and Warm Holiday Wishes,

Christmas is coming!

Christmas is in four days! In the rare case that I will not be able to post on Christmas day, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone! Oh yes, and once again, I would like to beg Sol and Laga to please surrender their addresses to me so that I may send them their Christmas presents-and Laga's book- ASAP. Also, I would like to invite all to post something on the blog before Christmas day even if it is the shortest sentence possible: "I am.", because I believe that it would make a certain individual very happy *cough* Sol. And, it's Christmas! Merry Christmas again!

Book Review from Sol

Baldr's review reminded me of another murder mystery I read recently... (Thanks again Bladr, and I will read your book as soon as the library gets a copy in!) ...that's called And Then There Were None. Intriguing title, isn't it? So all these people receive an invitation from an old friend to meet at a glamerous island home. Their host never shows up, though... and a brilliant, twisted murder mystery with an unexpected ending ensues! Wonderful book, highly recommended.

Sunday, December 12, 2010


Ok, so my cousin Brandon and I were viewing the blog and he asked what cyclic meant. To my dismay I realized that I didn't know either. Sol, please help me.


Friday, December 10, 2010

It is of my personal opinion that we should all choose a book or two and post on what it is about, and why all the rest of the people in the world should read it. Try not to contain spoilers while still intriuging us.
(I'll start shall I?)

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie: A Flavia DeLuce Mystery
This charming murder mystery is about an eleven-year-old chemist, Flavia, who absolutly adores poisons. Not that she would ever poison anyone, especially not her sisters... well, not unless they really deserved it... which, of course, they do. And it's not like she actually kills anyone or even seriosly injures them. Then one day Flavia's family finds a dead bird on their doorstep, and a dead man in the cucumbers. Flavia is in no way going to let the police have all the fun of solving a mystery and quickly sets about solving it herself.
I absolutly loved this book. It took me about twice as long as it should have because it was so funny that I kept having to get up and quote it to my family. Flavia is my favorite heroine since... well actually she is my favorite heroin EVER. I highly recomend The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie to anyone who values humor, mystery, stamps, or their friend Baldr not killing them.

So, now that you have my example write your own post about a book! Have fun, and always remember that Sol is about the only one that keeps this going. Thanks Sol.

Rant about Courage

Courage. Everyone agrees that courage is a great trait to have - fighting for liberty and your country and defending the Constitution and its rights - but I want you to take a minute to think about the smallest acts of courage we see  (or don't see) every day. I can find nothing worse, nothing more disappointing, than someone who can not find the courage to tell the truth or do the right thing - even when there are only insignificant consequences to their actions. When we commend soldiers or doctors for their courage in battle, in life-or-death situations that many people don't face, we often forget about the little courageous things everyone can do. Standing up for what you believe in, not hesitating to be responsible and take blame or credit for what you did - all are acts of courage, and even if everyone will tell you that's the way you should act, it is in no way how everyone acts. (For your entertainment, the word for fear of responsibility is hypengyophobia.) So, this is a plea for all who read this to be courageous and to ask others to be courageous. Thank you and good luck.
Best wishes,

Saturday, December 4, 2010


Thanks to all of you who took part in the Excursion, and wishes that next time more Knights will be able to make it. Here's to Bladr, Laga, and S, all of whom executed their noble job flawlessly! It feels so good to know you're making a difference. And we all learned a lot, didn't we? For on thing, that people are more stressed and hurried during the holidays. It was a more arduous task today than last time, no doubt. But we all had a good time and are looking forward to the next assembly/convention/meeting/convergence. =) Thanks again and Happy Hanukkah (which started Decmber 1st at sundown.)
More smilies,

The Excursion is... Today!

A few things. First, why is no one posting anymore??? We were going great in the beginning, but Odin, you've only posted once and Bladr not much more than that. Just set aside some time to whip up a post a few times a week, please.
Secondly, the Excursion for the Cause, which is today. We're off to share our thoughts and spread the Word of the Knights, and everyone who is going WILL post after we finish, okay? Good.
We're planning a Winter Get-together for sometime at the end of December or in January just to "like, chilax" (unwind, rest, relax) so start checking your calenders to find a suitable day.
Keep commenting on Laga's "November Challenge" post, too. It is extending into December as well, and 500 is still our goal. We welcome non-Knights to comment also.

Happy Turkey Day!...

... even though the Turkeys aren't particularly Happy. Okay, bad joke, sorry.
So, hope you all have submitted your ten comments to Laga's post... we have so much to be thankful for, it shouldn't be that hard. Just do it. 
I'd like to remind you all that, in addition to checking the blog posts periodically, you should also try to keep track of the various conversations going on in the comments of some of the posts. We'll become more organized as time goes on; thank you for your patience as we gradually work out all the kinks. A few of you (Bladr and Mira) had questions on the Excursions in the comments of one of the posts, and I tried to answer those there. If you still are unclear, email me.
Continue to be on the lookout for possible Knight (cuh-nig-it) additions, and enjoy your day, your food, your family, and all the other 110+ things (so far) we are thankful for!

Odin : Hello!

Due to some issues of varying nature, Odin is unable to post on the blog himself. So, he emails me his posts and I put them here for everyone to see. Odin's post:

Sorry it has taken so long, but I would like to post:
      Hi everybody! This is Odin, Norse god of battle, death, etc., and lord of the gods. I must apologize for my late entrance into this blog. I have now set aside time each day to send in a post. As for the upcoming mission, I would like to report that I am planning on attending and would like to be informed of the location.
  Thank you, all of you, who have come together to make this blog possible! Also, thank you to all those who have taken up our noble quest to revitalize the English language. I look forward to contributing to the Cah-Nig-Its blog on a regular basis!

Addition to November Challenge, and Such Items of Concern

To celebrate Thanksgiving Day, all Knights are encouraged to add at least ten comments to Laga's "November Challenge" post. Let's show everyone how thankful we are for everything!
Also, about new members. Honorary Knights will be urged to comment regularly on blog posts, and will be invited to Excursions, meetings, and the like. We're excited to expand our Knight force, so if any of you know of potential Knights, please look into their possible admittance. 
December 4th is still on, please RSVP by blog or email.
Pleasant wishes to all, and Happy Turkey Day tomorrow.

New Member?

I would like to propose the idea of inducting a new member to our prestigious gathering of intellectuals. His name is Steven Wilkins. He is 15, believes that the english language needs to be improved, and wants to make a difference in this country. He lives in Utah. Would there be any objections into making him an honorary member? I propose that we give him the privilege of posting on the blog, if not coming on the Excursions. What is everyone's opinion on this matter?

The Excursion...

... will probably be at- uh- dunno, actually. We were originally thinking a park, but December is cold and snowy most of the time, so I doubt that would be either an enjoyable or very successful venture. I'll call you and we can discuss this in greater detail, okay?

The Excursion for the Cause

Well, Balder (the god of inocence and peace [hee hee] and Lord of the Interrobang) was curiose as to where this Excursion's location is. Help.

Monday, November 15, 2010


I love that idea, Laga! Wonderful thought. Unless there are any objections, let's start right away - just comment on Laga's post.
Odin, still waiting for your post... I understand that everything's hectic right now, but it really doesn't take too long and it's well worth the effort.
I'm excited for the Giving Thanks challenge - let's go!

November Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
I would like to propose putting off the quote war, in favor of something to celebrate this wonderful season. We all have a lot to be thankful for, and I was thinking a great way to celebrate our amazing lives would be to have a "Gratitude Shout Off". If you agree with me, let's post things we are grateful for, one at a time, as comments. For example, I would post "Red fall leaves" and "Green summer leaves" seperately. That way the comment counter counts how many things we are greatful for. We should be allowed to repeat each other's ideas. Let's see if we can get over 500!!!

My first post!

Hi everyone! This is Baldr, and I am so excited to be a Knight! Good books? You all have to read "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie". I am aware that it sounds like on of those Old-lady-book-club-books, but it really isn't. It is, in fact, a murder mystery.
It's Sol again - hello hello hello! Hope everyone's been enjoying their Saturday.
I want to quickly address two things:
   1) The Knight Outing will be on DECEMBER 11TH probably, not the 5th, and not the 10th. Sorry 'bout those typos. Please tell me ASAP if you can make it - if not, we'll adjust.
   2) We will be introducing a fun way to keep you all interested in posting on the blog - a quote tournament! Quotes must be mostly memorized - as long as they're very close to the real thing you'll be good. Details to follow... start reviewing those quotes!
We will also be establishing a "Post on the Blog" day each week, and you MUST post on that day! If you have no access to a computer... well, make a computer out of whatever's handy. NO EXCUSES for not posting... and Bladr, if you "forget" there will be severe punishments!
Still working on technical issues on the website, hopefully it will be revised soon.
Continuing to wait somewhat patiently for Odin and Bladr.

Thursday, November 11, 2010

So, we have yet to hear from Odin or Baldr... (Thanks for posting, Laga!) By the way, this is Sol. Hoping you fellow Knights have been making progress with Knightly (cuh-nig-it-ly) business, but also hope that you will be able to make time in your busy schedules to post. 
P.S. Anyone reading any good books???


Hello all!
This is Laga, Nordic goddess of Water, ecstatic student who is still trying to make herself enjoy French class, and a person still excited over having discovered the following words today: Banal and Whilom. I think we all can agree that these words are not banal at all! To everyone who has not posted yet, please do so! Yours without wax,

Hello, Mira!
Glad to see you are "reporting to duty." Ah-hem, my fellow Knights - where art thou?
We Knights are planning to go on an Excursion for the Cause on December 5 of 2010... but we've got a lot of work to do! And even more if you don't use the blog... hint hint... it is a good way of communicating and all that. SO, hope to hear from y'all soon!

Greetings and Salutations

Hello everyone. This is Mira, goddess of music, art, magic, and spiritual beauty, and proud member of the cuhnigits, reporting to duty! Let's go out there and change the world for the better!

Monday, November 8, 2010
