copy from the other thread--

most likely herniated disc in my neck at C6 level, have an MRI wednesday next week to confirm the damage. will get the results somewhere in january.

meanwhile, i have been cooking myself some cannabis in beeswax to give it a rub against the pain and it works perfectly. because it's illegal when driving i'm going to make some hot pepper beeswax next week.

so to anyone that can get their hands on some pot for medicinal reasons (or not)-- don't smoke it, just give it a rub!

This thing making the internet rounds was apparently written by a Dutchman in the 20s...fascinating! I'd love to know how it seems to our monkeys who learned English as a second (or third or fourth) language. The irregularities are hideous even for native speakers, and I know there are some differences among British/American/Australian speakers...

a nightmare! But a fun one.

^ it'd be fun to see the faces of people who are trying to learn the language. By the way, one of my students had a theory that the English actually plotted and worked hard to make their language so bloody difficult to learn...

Quote:
After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud.
Well, well, these words from the mouth of a Frenchman... curieux...

As for me, I don't actually speak English. There's nobody to speak to over here so I don't bother too much with the correct pronunciation of 'Terpsichore'.

(Oops, I think my English teacher's just turned in her grave.)

^^going to the gymnasium where they hire teachers who are insane when it comes to languages, we weren't allowed to leave the classroom until we could pronounce every english word margaret thatcher style. it was awful.

i guess it did work, the only one i don't know is Terpsichore.

Coffee,

Your most recent entry reminds me of a joke that
i heard for the first time
today....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A New York tailor, devout Jew all his days, tries very hard to bring
up his children in the faith. One day, his youngest son comes to
him and announces that he is becoming a Roman Catholic. The tailor
ponders his misfortunes, trying to understand why such a thing
should happen to him. In desolation, he seeks out his rabbi and
confides in him.

"Rabbi," laments the tailor, "I do not understand. I have a son, a
good Jewish boy, brought up in the faith. We observed, we attended,
we did everything for the boy, and yet he decides to become a
Christian. How can this thing be?"

"My friend," says the rabbi, "you WOULDN'T believe, but I must tell
you. I, too, have a son, a good Jewish boy, brought up here in the
synagogue, in the faith. Yet, he also became a Catholic. Who is to
know? The Almighty has his reasons. All we can do is pray to Him
for answers."

With that, the two of them set forth in devout prayer.

Suddenly, the lights dim, the walls shake, and God's voice fills the
room. "Let me tell you two, you WOULDN'T believe, but I too
had a son....
