Nooooo as if the end-of-year lists aren't enough we're now getting the end-of-the-decade lists. (From the non-pedants. Next year we'll have another bout, from the pedants.)
Now the hard part of the edit is coming (one of the hard parts, at least): extract the real info from the conversation. It's not an as-you-know-Bob conversation: one partner knows very little, and the other not enough, and they work it out together. But I still want it in normal text, it's not a radio play.
@OldBrushNewPaper I think I said something like "that's none of your business" and fled into a changing cubicle.
@wigglytuffitout @Antanicus @AmyZenunim A Chinese woman of my acquaintance who is the BEST F***ING PROGRAMMER I KNOW dresses like that. Her parents are farmers and she's tall and not pretty but it suits her so much.
Newest in unsolicited advice: a woman in the swimming pool shower telling me to relax. Felt exactly like a man telling me to smile.
@PeteBleackley We have the advantage that we *are* the in-laws. (Well, of one of the guests anyway.)
We may very well have a goose for Christmas.
@ak Yes. (I have it set globally to "necessary cookies only", and I find that some sites respect that and others don't)
@ak Nobody took issue with it, not even the people using the urinals. I went to wash my hands on the ladies' side, though.
@ak I must admit I was in some distress because I needed to go very badly and someone was pushing me because they considered me to be in their way, so I just grabbed the first available cubicle I saw without trying to orient myself.
@ak I accidentally walked into the wrong bathroom the other day, and I've been a "lady" all my life! Only noticed when I came out and saw the urinals.
Is it just me, or is "by continuing this site you accept cookies" (a) fishy and (b) actually a violation of that European cookie law?
@OldBrushNewPaper @ak No, that's André van Duin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9_van_Duin; annoying but innocuous. Youp van 't Hek https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youp_van_'t_Hek seems to think he's higher class, André van Duin is more for "de gewone man". I like neither lowbrow droll nor nasty sarcasm (that's why many people think I have no sense of humor, but Monty Python or the Marx Brothers make me laugh!)
This Tuesday is *so* doing its best to be a Thursday. Nopety-nope.
@ak Found out that the horrid song is by the horrid columnist *literally as I looked it up for you*. I can't say I'm surprised.
