Possibly, one graffito (and not graffitUS as one might assume. Do such observations lack gravitas?)

explanation? in a blog URL-d 'kauntext'? *assumes horrified expression*

original graffiti was, er, somewhat more comprehensible: Octopus, troimasik. presumable a local little mag,who knows?

Rimi said...

presumablY. sorry :)

Arthur Quiller Couch said...

Surely troimasik means quarterly?

Rimi said...

NO, a quarter essentially implies, i believe, FOUR equal parts. a troi... implies THREE :P

Rimi, Arthur's right I think. Troimasik will mean that which is repeated after three months. Hence, you'll have four of those in a year, ergo troimasik equals quarterly.

I know of a little magazine called Octopus.
