What Caity does

Caity aims to become proficient at various activities, such as gardening, arts and crafts, and cookery; and intends to continue exploring the wondrous world of language, both natural and programming. She also hopes to get fit; to this end, she has started running. She runs slowly because she feels it’s important to be able to breathe at the same time.

This site’s subtitle is taken from Susan Coolidge‘s book What Katy Did, which Caity read when she was little. She can’t really remember what Katy Carr did then or next, but she knows she enjoyed finding out at the time.

Who Caity is

Caity used to be a lot of things, but now she’s trying to find her place in the world.

Caity lives with Mr Perkins and Colin.

What this site is

This site is a chronicle of Caity’s progress — or lack thereof — in and experience of the activities listed above.

Caity is delighted and grateful that you’ve taken the time to visit her personal website, and she thanks you.

She appreciates the benefits a link swap could provide; however, she would not feel comfortable accepting such offers: each external link on this website is selected because of its direct relevance/relation to the experience/information Caity describes/discusses in the surrounding text. Caity would feel disingenuous if she added links that do not fit this criterion.

Caity would therefore appreciate it if you did not submit requests to swap or exchange links between your site and hers. If you think that her site is relevant to your site, however, please do feel free to link to it! 😉

Caity hopes you understand, and wishes you well in your venture.

What pandammonium means

Yonks ago, Caity was registering for some website or other and had to think up a username. She chose pandaemonium, but of course it had already gone, as had pandemonium. She had a little think, and came up the spelling pandammonium as a play on pandas and her first degree subject of chemistry: panda + ammonium (NH4+) → pandammonium.

Caity drew the panda eating bamboo as a logo, but neglected to draw in a container of ammonium salts because she didn’t think she could draw such a thing in a way that people would get. That’s not to cast aspersions on people, but on her own lack of electronic-art talent.
