Even worse: Death penalty for something you didn't do. But it's not as immediate as a Darwin Award. (Well, at least not here in the U.S. We still have an appeal process.)

They are banned from raising another case unless it is approved, which is unlikely as they are mad and malevolent.

It's the same here in the U.S.

Re: ADIEU (for now?)

Well, I was thinking back to when I was 15, and had all four bone-impacted wisdom teeth removed. I can't even describe the misery. My caregiver was the sweetest, most wonderful person ever--my dear Grammy. She made sure I had everything I needed, and just held me and talked to me as I wept.

Well, when I wrote about "psychoese," I thought I'd just seen the absolute worst writing in the American corner of the English-speaking world. And yes, reading it requires copious quantities of alcohol to make it tolerable. (I've never tried any other mind-altering substances, so I can't v...

Re: ADIEU (for now?)

I think it has more to do with the injury, the pain, and the very painkillers themselves than it does with the caregiver. I can say that with some experience, having been the emotionally fragile patient. But this, too, shall pass and get better!

Vic, I'm late to this thread, but your Ange is in my prayers for a speedy recovery! You, too, are in them--you'll need strength and patience, to care for a patient. Courage, and Godspeed!

Re: How many shots in that latte?

Three. Add a little caramel syrup, and I'm really happy! :mrgreen: It's just delicious, and it helps me focus enough to write my way through stuff that could otherwise be dreadfully boring.

It could also be "psychoese," which doesn't require high quantities of alcohol.

Re: Sweet tooth

Mr. C says that he'd choose savory for a meal... unless he had been deprived of sweets for a week. Then, he'd go straight for the sugar! Snacks are a different story. When there are homemade cookies in the house, he turns into the Cookie Monster, stealthily gobbling them up at every opportunity. Tha...

Bravo, Sam! :lol: :lol: :lol: You really had me going there. No, really! I'm serious! You see, I just finished reading the comments posted to the online versions of my local newspaper's stories, and (this should scare us all) there are people here who write and think just like "Sylvia!" :s...

Unfortunately, new-fashioned lawyers use it too. It's just a high-falootin' way of saying "in spite of." Some folks use it to sound impressive. Sometimes, it just sounds more civilized than the words you'd rather use! :wink:

Re: A Simple Survey...

LOL! :mrgreen:

And I'm with Amber. I prefer a good red wine, dark chocolate, and strong coffee. I don't think it's a male-female thing.

How it all fits in with preferences for Macintosh computers and Saturn cars, I'm really not sure. :?
