42 Quirks has been "Oulipo"-ed...

Oulipo is the name of the theme that I am using. Oh, and while we’re at it, a slick, mobile theme has also been setup thanks to the wonderful WordPress Mobile Plugin & Carrington Mobile Theme by Crowd Favorite!

Here’s a bit of trivia about the word ‘Oulipo’ from the Free dictionary:

“Oulipo (French pronunciation: [ulipo], short for French: Ouvroir de littérature potentielle; roughly translated: “workshop of potential literature“) is a loose gathering of (mainly) French-speaking writers and mathematicians which seeks to create works using constrained writing techniques. It was founded in 1960 by Raymond Queneau and François Le Lionnais. Other notable members include novelists Georges Perec and Italo Calvino, poet Oskar Pastior and poet/mathematician Jacques Roubaud.”

A little more sleuthing reveals the official Oulipo website!

Hah, looks like my blog is in some esteemed company! :D
