How can you have one or8 and not the other?
12:39 am
VolleymomDee

good question
12:46 am
torgone

Well, because ...
12:46 am
VolleymomDee

yes????
12:47 am
torgone

The English spelling applies to the unit of length ..
12:47 am
VolleymomDee

not to the actual apparatus??
12:47 am
torgone

The "measuring instrument" is the same in English and American English ..
12:48 am
VolleymomDee

interesting, thx for sharing
12:49 am
rururocks

give someone and inch and they'll take..
12:49 am

Just a bit of linguistic trivia ..

1:07 am
VolleymomDee

I vaguely remembered those from a study a long time ago, but I had to use morewords to find them
1:08 am
rururocks

it looks like a Yiddish word
1:08 am
VolleymomDee

what are you doing for Christmas, ru?
1:08 am
VolleymomDee

Hebrew
1:08 am
rururocks

me ? .. nothing really.. just laying low
1:09 am
rururocks

may talk to a few friends on the phone
1:09 am
rururocks

how bout you?
1:10 am
VolleymomDee

quiet day with our daughter and son-in-law; very laid back, but will be great :)
1:10 am
rururocks

nice.. that's kind of what I need now too.. quiet and easy
1:10 am
VolleymomDee

we had hubby's family Christmas with 20 last weekend, so this will be great. How are you doing?
1:11 am
rururocks

been a rough last three weeks.. so I'm happy for the break and the time off
1:11 am
rururocks

20.. wow.. I hope you had help
1:12 am
VolleymomDee

I hope things get better, ru. Our daughter hosted, so we brought a few dishes and didn't have to worry about anything. It was wonderful. We thanked her a bizillion times!
1:12 am
VolleymomDee

We brought their dog to our house for the afternoon, and then spent the day at their house. Win / win.
1:13 am
rururocks

yes.. But I bet you've done your share.. so it's great your daughter stepped in and took charge
1:13 am
VolleymomDee

So very true and really nice for me. I ne5 know when I am going to have a bad day, so it takes away all of my stress.
1:13 am
rururocks

well.. I think time will just help.. I lost a very close friend to Lymphoma right after thanksgiving
1:14 am
rururocks

I can't imagine not ever being able to speak to her again.. it's a huge loss for me in my life
1:15 am
VolleymomDee

Oh, that is so tough. Sure is a void that cannot be filled. I know you miss her every day. One of my hubby's friends has been battling that for the last 4 or 5 years.
1:16 am
rururocks

they have a good arsenal against the disease.. but it didn't work for her. It usually does .. but not in this case
1:16 am
VolleymomDee

They have come a long way with treatment, which probably makes it even tougher losing her.
1:17 am
rururocks

yeah.. It does.. we were friends for over 30 years.. she taught me a lot of great things
1:17 am
flosey

fw and off to bed, goodnight all

some of my favorite people on chat. hi and bye
1:47 am
sprite

bye jwr
1:48 am
jwr

aha - sprite remains when all is lost
1:48 am
sprite

*grins* I aim to please! How are you, jwr?
1:49 am
jwr

I will read the chat log when I get a break tonight -- the call room will be busy. ... I'm fine. Can't complain. Oh, I forgot -it's Babble! Of course I can! ooooooooh
1:50 am
sprite

you can complain all you like, lol.
1:50 am
jwr

no really, fine. Just had a ball. An annual treat called KUNG PAO KOSHER COMEDY
1:50 am
sprite

Merry Christmas to you and yours, if you are celebrating.
1:51 am
sprite

sounds good. A bunch of laughs is healthy.
1:51 am
sprite

phantom: eminent
1:51 am
jwr

That was the celebration - Jewish comedians in a Chinese restaurant. It's well known -- and a mixed crowd
1:52 am
sprite

oh! That sounds really awesome!
1:53 am
jwr

They actually put on the show all through the weekend - sells out months before. (no food though)
1:53 am
sprite

too complicated maybe, with a mixed crowd, to offer food
1:54 am
jwr

If you already chatted about your plans and presents and all that - I will read it later.
1:55 am
jwr

You're right about the food service - I never thought about that. Though for most jews (non-orthodox) Chinese restaurants (the only ones open during Christmas!!!) are the place to go
1:55 am
TheByzantine

CHILDHOOD, n. The period of human life intermediate between the idiocy of infancy and the folly of youth โ€” two removes from the sin of manhood and three from the remorse of age.
1:56 am
jwr

And You had to mention your phantom, didn't you. Now I can't see anything else.
1:56 am
sprite

no I didn't, and I don't have many. We don't do presents at Christmas, since we have Sinterklaas on Dec 5. Today it is just me and my beloved and a simple meal. I might have to go and pick up a friend who is not feeling well enough to use public transportation, and give her a ride home. Tomorrow, we will have a lazy Xmas day... our traditional movies, some crocheting, another simple meal.
1:57 am
sprite

*grins* You know me, I am happy to share
1:57 am
TheByzantine

CHRISTMAS, n. A day set apart and consecrated to gluttony, drunkenness, maudlin sentiment, gift-taking, public dulness and domestic misbehavior.What! not religious? You should see, my pet,
On every Christmas day how drunk I get!
O, I'm a Christian โ€” not a pious monk
Honors the Master with so dead a drunk.
1:58 am
jwr

I have no way of getting back at you on this site -- you're out of my league. But I might email you some time. A few minutes left. . What traditional movies, Sprite?
1:59 am
sprite

would love an email, any time, jwr
1:59 am
jwr

you'll be sooorrrryyy
1:59 am
sprite

Little Lord Fauntleroy is a must, as is Dinner for One. Then probably Scrooged and How the Gringe Stole Christmas.
1:59 am
sprite

no I won't be, lol. Go right ahead.
2:01 am
jwr

Oh I never ever thought about Frances Hodgson Burnett for christmas. How perfect. And they couldn't p[ossibly make a remake of that movie -- what kid would be able to play that role?
2:01 am
sprite

exactly. Just perfect, he is.
2:02 am
jwr

Have you ever watched it with your son though - or any other youngster? I wonder how
2:02 am
jwr

they'd react. (trigger fingeers)
2:03 am
sprite

my daughter insists on the tradition as much as I do. My son really likes the movie, but prefers to go to his girlfriend on Christmas, so he will miss it this year.
2:04 am
jwr

what a strange male? ... oops just noticed the witching hour had come and gone - it is now Christmas morning and my bus is coming. You have the last word: make it good!
2:05 am
sprite

have a lovely couple of days, jwr!

10:35 am

Wow. Might have to look into that.
10:35 am
Judi

He was a character for sure. Not sure why he used a pen name. I think it may have had something to do with the fact that Huck Finn was friends with a black man named Jim. That sort of thing was frowned on in the South at the time.
10:36 am
medusa

Maybe. Was a brave move to write about that back then.
10:36 am
bichon

Yes, and he wrote "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court"
10:36 am

10:36 am

Either that or he wasn't sure the book would be a success, so he didn't use his real name to avoid being ridiculed.
