Get girthy

I am trying to make, before I get through, a picture of the whole world — or as much of it as I have seen. Boiling it down always, rather than spreading it out thin.

—Ernest Hemingway, as quoted in Ernest Hemingway On Writing

Be not afraid — be girthy.

If you’re like us, and your interests include the Sunset of the Empire and Sport (“Gladiators, I salute you”), don’t delay. Meet The Girth and Baby Girth. Go click; people, it’s time to get girthy.

The irony. The pity. We’re all in.
