  1. It’s often a decision between styles. I mean why would you want to spake King James English? It’s sophisticated, often crude and can be very convoluted, with generous leeway for spelling. It can be peotic under the right hands.:)
  2. I was too I’ll to go, but my DH brought me video of the Gay Pride parade in our Canadian city. It was joyful. One year I attended and used my color wheel umbrella. ( couldn’t expose skin to sunlight) People wanted to know where I got it from. And it is a controversial large company. Oh well. This year lots of people had color wheels and flags with other flavors as well. Today I wore something more flamboyant than usual to fly my freak artistic side! And attempt to be an ally.
  3. Yes, Canada has willing journalists, who take the money and audition for Fox jobs. Tucker Calrlson is a hate speaker…I have read. He should be banned from Canadian airwaves. The Doug Ford fiasco comes from terrible biased journalism from Fox and Sinclair news. I will be anti conservative now until I die because of all the lawlessness, rabblerousing, white supremacy, and either lying or repeating dubious talking points. Justin Trudeau kept people safe. I snort loudly at the attempts to portray him as a tyrant. He is not at all. In particular, he is supportive of women’s rights and equality. American conservatives and Ontario conservatives to support weaseling and corruption( and try to take foreign money for this). Doug Ford is a perfect useful idiot with a crap drug addicted and dead brother, too. Oh I just read that somewhere….people say.
  4. Gosh, what would Toth’s teacher do with semi-colons? Some of my DH’s family used 4 different versions of the same last name. The weren’t so data driven then. People didn’t always record exactly when they were born in any calendar. My very friendly third cousins are Yorkshire lasses. They teased me for saying “hhhorse” instead of “orse”. In turn, I taught then to say “ bloody bugger” with an American Great Lakes version, and they taught me to say it with a Yorkshire accent. Lots of giggling ensued. We were around 12.
  5. It’s hot here. I cold brewed cucumber melon green tea. I also made a restaurant tomato soup into gazpacho by changing the bowl, putting into a cold bath, and putting it into the fridge. Wet microfiber towels folded behind your neck help.
  6. The English language drifts, and accumulates, despite our individual preferences. Go with it:)
  7. Hate speech is not legal in Canada. Tucker does this for ratings. I wonder is if his estate flooded? Was someone there with bullhorns ?
  8. Yes, marrying Quentyn would have been a good alliance, if all things were equal, but it couldn’t happen. I’m sympathetic to Quentyn , but really, he was unprepared for the task, and then he was rash to “ get the girl” who had a limited amount of time. Quiathe didn’t help, I imagine, but the proposal was doomed on merit other than he had a royal bloodline. It didn’t even seem official.
  9. I forced myself to watch the final season of “Lost” and my spouse refused.
  10. Imagine that Quentyn says something like “ Hi Dany, we are long lost cousins, and even though you are marrying a guy tomorrow to prevent bloodshed, I am going to ignore your desires and wishes, and if you don’t pick me instead…and I realize I’m not attractive or accomplished, I will unleash your dangerous fire breathing pets from where they are caged. How about it, hon?”
  11. I was tested for chickenpox immunity and HIV, for immigration! I have a great long term memory and I remember going to a chickenpox party as a child, but not getting any symptoms. When people show off their pox, I have nothing. The test later on confirmed it, and I was required to get a chickenpox vaccine. Now I can get shingles, or HIV, although anyone can. I also know people who were too young to get shingles, who got shingles. One was a child. If I were doing research( but they are busy), I would want to know why I was spared. I would compare and contrast with Pebble. Easier said than done:) .
  12. Shingles is painful and the pain can last. You could lose your vision. Yes, you can get it from previous chicken pox or personal contact. I have the Shingles vaccine on my list, but I’ve been saving my limited stamina for boosters. I think there are two different companies? One vaccine is split. I haven’t done the due diligence. I will get it as soon as I’m in good enough shape.
  13. I recall that I got The Fionavar Tapestry from a “staff picks” section. The cover was interesting and not “Flash Gordon” like. I was delighted right away because of the setting. It was lovely to read something good, after some of the bad Tolkien knockoffs. It is faster paced then some of Kay’s other books, I thought. I read the rest in the order of release, and that solved some problems that others have. I didn’t read YA.
  14. Vaccines are a medical miracle produced by lots of work. Ouch, pox in throat. My peers would open their eyes wide when I said that I had never had it. To get a green card, my one government requirement was that I take the chickenpox vaccine. You can die of it if you get it as an adult. I’ve heard that it is not related to smallpox. I had that vaccine at 5 and I got a headache and a tiny scar.
  15. See, it’s possible now to go after their wallet with dna testing. Use fear, because fairness is low on their prioritities. Women do not count. especially women of Color but no woman is left without scars. Republicans only care about votes from women, not their issues. But forced And Dna proven fatherhood, will be the only play for non woke Americans.
  16. Nice! I mirrored HeartofIce. It should be familiar to you.
  17. I don’t like your sneering sarcastic mixed messages. Very few of your responses are free from this attitude of contempt. No wonder you fight online all the time. Most people have more self awareness. You pretend to discuss issues, but bring nothing but rudeness.
  18. I taught preschoolers. You can break things down for them, or model:) I supervised in the playground every week. There was only one bike. I would intervene if they fought or shoved another kid off. Usually I would give them 5 minutes each and then stop them for the next turn. Kids are not more virtuous naturally. There was also spontaneous kindness shown.
  19. I can see why Tucker moved to Montana.
  20. Some religions don’t approve of social equality. It is sort of like Handmaids, the fertile. Keep women poor and pregnant. Take over rights to have a bank account, like the good old days.
  21. Don’t discount suspense and story building:) It’s why it’s good.
