Ouch! in all three cases I am three times gay (six times actually counting the
David Bowie and the conlanger thing together) and three times conlanger: I like
David Bowie (especially during his Ziggy Stardust period), I have a friend
(actually my boyfriend) who also likes David Bowie and knows other people who
like David Bowie. Also, I am a conlanger, I know a few other people who are
conlangers and they also know conlangers... well in this case it's mostly thanks
to the list isn't it? :) So I guess we're all three times conlangers :) .
