    So did Sirleck leave the butler all his dead host's money? Or did Sirleck just have to get whatever host he could get right away? On the other hand, after whatever villainy Sirleck is about to commit, maybe he could jump to another host. Then everyone will think the butler did it.

    Warn her, apologize in advance, and let her know you appreciate her. In fact, even when everything is going great, let her know you appreciate her.

    Dark chocolate peanut butter cups from Trader Joe's. And before that, Coq au Vin from Trader Joe's. Now I want to go eat there both to see the ceiling and to support a business with a sense of humor and the knowledge and willingness to play with the English language like that. :-)

    In the story I'm familiar with, originally biblical but declared apocryphal by the Church in one of their big editing splurges, God created Adam and Lilith together, from the same materials at the same time. But when Lilith expected to be treated as an equal, Adam complained to God, who, instead of telling Adam to be a good husband and accept an equal companion, kicked out Lilith and made Eve out of spare parts with a message from day one that she was subservient to Adam.

    A Tex-Mex place I like which has a totally original and unique special. Taco Tuesday. They have cartoon like paintings on the acoustic ceiling tiles. Today, I was intimidated by the message "Ceiling Cat is watching you masticate".

    Oh Elliot. You want so badly to apologise but can't make yourself reopen an old wound. So you do all you can to show Tedd now how much you accept what he is. I think I love Elliot more now than I ever have before.

    I thought it took a Constitutional Amendment to remove something that is already in the Constitution. Besides, the Preamble is the only part I ever memorized.

    We can look at our own history to know that different cultures developed unique fighting styles with various weapons, and for europeans at one time, honorable combat involved both sides lining up their troops on the field. What Klingons used for weapons and how they fought would likely have worked for Klingons just fine. But comparing how a Klingon fights versus how a Human fights would be like that scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark where Indiana Jones was confronted by a swordsman trying to be intimidating and Indy just pulls out a gun and shoots him.

    And if you aren't actually trying to write unreadable code (and aren't writing in APL or Lisp) there are few things worse than to have some electrical-engineering calculations written in Cobol by a Fortran programmer and then patched into a Cobol program by a person who understands neither electrical engineering nor Fortran (and isn't all that great at Cobol either). Now add in that there's a suspected bug somewhere in that mess, and the person assigned to fix (not one of its creators) it is an immigrant whose skills as a Cobol programmer are sound but is unfortunately lacking skills in English. (She begged me for help. It took me all afternoon to figure out what those two pages of code were doing, then all the next morning to be confident I had deciphered it correctly. And even though I know almost nothing of electrical engineering, it looked wrong. So I sent my explanation of what it was doing to the clients, asking if it was correct. The next day I got a response back - the code was wrong and they provided the correct formula - and spent an hour writing a third of a page of straight Cobol to do the same calculation. I delivered that to the lady assigned, and she actually could understand it.) That was, oh, probably somewhere around 1995. Anyone just starting out in programming, take away this message: the MOST IMPORTANT audience for any given piece of code is NOT the compiler. It's the programmer who has to fix or alter that piece of code. You or someone else, in a few hours or in a few years. That person has to be able to read the code. If the code is readable, it can evaluated for correctness and can be fixed as needed. If it's unreadable, it can't be fixed and nobody can be confident that it's correct.

    Also, with the asking for Tedd to make it into a clone form, Elliot is implying "hey, I want to share this fun form with you too". While there's no harm in Elliot doing that, I would think that what Elliot told Tedd the day before was enough for Tedd to know that Elliot no longer thinks that way.

    Spine doctors tend to be overworked. Think of all the politicians that have their spines surgically removed. That is a lot of work.

    This reminds me of an experience the father of a friend of mine had. This was due to computers in the Danish Bureau of Taxation not handling rounding very well. One fine day he received a letter from the Bureau of Taxation informing him that he had an outstanding tax of 0.00 Danish crowns, to be paid no later than the first of the following month. He shrugged and filed the letter vertically. (In Danish office lingo, the wastebasket is also fondly known as the vertical file.) Two months later he received a very strong letter warning him that since he STILL had not paid his outstanding taxes of 0.00 crowns, now six weeks overdue, the Bureau of Taxation demanded that he pay within the next two weeks or face a ten percent additional tax as well as paperwork fees, and if he still refused, they would take him to court. For some reason, the local post office refused to let him send a money order for the Bureau of Taxation for the sum total of 0.00 crowns. So he called the Bureau of Taxation and asked them what he was supposed to do, or if he should just wait until the case went to court. It took some fifteen minutes of panic on the other end to find the case and kill it. Apparently they were not very eager to present their end of the case to a judge.

    The modern version suggests that he is still very much not there. Yesterday upon a stair I met a man who wasn't there he wasn't there again today I think he's from the NSA...

    I wonder if Dr Last-Name-Not-Known-Yet is related to Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Film? As for Funny uniforms I would never laugh at? There are still ceremonial units of the US Army that wear tri-corner hats. And I don't think any thing scores higher on the absurdity scale than the Neo-Renaissance Gala Uniforms of the Pontifical Swiss Guard with Halberds.

    I will grant that all I had today was my normal aches and pains that come with weather fronts. I don't have any real long term chronic pain issues, just frequent migraines and bashing myself due to lack of coordination. I am not in your class of pain most of the time, for which I am very grateful.

    If I ever find the pattern again, I'll have to knit you a scarf like one I have half-finished somewhere....it was white with light green stripes, with white strips along either edge with holes in them. :-)

    At least I've got jasmine oolong. While I would not think of that as a "good" thing, obviously you do, so go with that. Look for the small bits of shinny in the muck. Just don't throw your back out bending over to pick them up.
