That auto-translation is the absolute crappe.

Runokuu can mean poetry moon, or, more likely, Poetry Month (though false advertising if it lasts a week). There are no runes mentioned in the original.

Also, "Young Power Union", WTF? Sounds like an anti-elderly militant activist group rather than a pro-literature club.

It is a pretty common crochet design that people like making here to give to hospitals that have preemie wards, as the thin tentacles are apparently perfect for teeny babies to grab on to safely.

I don't think we have a concise term in the US for that, at least not that I've heard. I'd have to say 'overly pleased with myself' or something.
