For now, I would be happy to speak English without making "certain people" (S'Shon), not strain to not laugh (okay, guilty... I think he is unintentional funny, too. So this is only fair.). I once tried to learn German, but I only speak "Shlurman". I am like Mexican friends, who take Spanish, and make a "D". They only speak "Spanglish".___ The Jeep was puled out soon after it got foundered. But the Ford Ranger, it is still very well stuck. We secured it with a cable, so the mud would not take it further down the arroyo. I am happy that the miners built on solid rock! :-)
Yes, "... a very long time to say so very little". ... But, it was with 0.00000% ambiguity, and absolute clarity, that they made it plain(yes, plain, my favorite concept ;-) ) that they were geeky Star Trekkers!!!!1! Thou should not be vague, about such things! ;-) LOL!!! Otherwise, people could be "taken aback", by their dear, sincere, sweet, "silliness". __ Speaking Lojban, may be a good thing. Or at least, a necessary thing, for this culture, at some time in the future, I think. ;-) Though, maybe not for myself. I am certain that I sound very much to "funny", already. ;-D
Yes, it was a VERY nice thought. :-) But, now a small Ford Ranger is down in a big, muddy ditch (but unscathed ... well - at least no more scathed, than it was before), and one nice Jeep is slightly scathed across one fender. ... But then - I could have perished, of WWW Deprivation, a terrible way to die!!! ;-) I have a propane generator (with a "two year tank"), Cad-Electric heat, a cell phone(company business, and emergency only. Yes, I told them, "do not worry".), and many "Alternate Energy Kindel Downloads" (these were called, "books") But my friends think that this is not adequate, for sustaining nerd-life on this planet. ;-) Being honest, I was having slight internet withdrawal, but not fatal.___ Where have my hot, arid desert mountains gone?! It is Canada out side!!! ___ How far did your parents need to travel, to be frozen? For reverse-migration, this is NOT good weather!!!!1!!
I think that Nora Lee. from Alberta may, just possibly, be a graduate of the Royal Canadian School of Shatneresque Acting. Hehehee! All of her vids are in Lojban. All of them, so very geeky. But the cadence of it is very beautiful, I think. After years of fixing my normal-speak, S'Shon thinks that I need to sound even geekier! ;-D
Hello, Yes, I am still alive. :-) ... Oh! I MEAN ... coi (Greetings!). Rock lizards are very silly friends to have, who think that they should rescue you (after you tell them not to) and that get their 4x4s stuck instead, so that you must rescue them!!! ;-D And then, they tell you that you should to learn to speak Lojban!!! (a language that was invented only for the purpose that geeks can sound like space aliens ;-) ) I wonder how you say, "I am fine, the phone is dead, and the electricity is off, but I do NOT need them, or miss them very much, remember - I was Amish!!!", ... in Lojban? ;-)
Probably just as well although the distance is greater than would be practical for any followup. News last night said people over 45 were less careful about privacy on facebook than the young ones, leading to possible id theft.
