    Hey, what are you doing here? Gee, thanks. Anywho, I didn't do anything for New Year's Eve and the Bucs won the NFC South (Woo!), so I've been celebrating today... since noon. I'm lonesome now, so does anyone want to talk about something? I'll start.

    Did you know that according to Otto Jerspersen, Danish linguist and, some say, the expert on English, in 1924 oxen was the only form left in English that uses the -en suffix to form plurals? shoes, foes, eyes used to be shoen, fone, eyen. Hah. I think we shoud let -en rest in peace. Oxes, people, call them oxes! Every chance you get!

    Did you know that hussy was originally (modernized) housewife? Hah. And now we've made the word housewife all over again. Husband and hustings were also originally compounds involving house, though it was pronounced differently back then.

    Did you know that long -- length; deep -- depth; wide -- width; broad -- breadth; whole -- health were all once formed by the same process too? Bet you've never noticed the rule though (didn't notice whole and health, did you?). I wonder how it is that we notice some patterns and not others. How does that happen?

    Hm. Anyone still there? :frown:

    Tell me something that you find interesting.

    It doesn't even need to be true. :biggrin:

    Hi HRW!! You'll get no respect from me, ya sassy lass! Especially now that I see you weren't doing anything last night and you could have been hanging out with us.

    I find airplane travel interesting. Particularly because there are always 3 types of people you will sit with on the journey: 1) crazy person 2) sick person 3) screaming toddler.

    On my trip down to Texas, I got stuck between 1 and 2. On my trip back I got stuck between 2 and 3.

    Travel much?

    Maybe I should just shut up. You sound melancholy for some reason. I don't know why.

    Aw, that's why I'll always have a special place in my heart for the men of Troy... and oxygen-rich blood.

    Yeh, so did your place in line.

    (Me: Brain, that doesn't reflect poorly on me, does it?
    Brain: No.
    Me: Good.)

    Hah, silly tiger.

    It was quite fun. I spent some time hanging out with cows. And also sea lions and penguins (down in Galveston at the aquarium). The weather was warm so we were out and about quite a bit. But now I'm sick from the airplane trip, so I am trying to recover. *ack*

    Fine. You have two choices: you can go eat Trix or you can *whispers something naughty into Frank Stallone's ear*
