^ most pickles upset my delicate insides.

< suddenly the forum bicycle? :P PS Rob there is no need for you to be jealous since Haids is not my type, at all. :P

Knows that "while" was once a noun in the good ol' days when English was still declined.

True - and, as far as I can tell, the use of while as in "While I was mowing the lawn, the cat was chewing the power cord" didn't exist. (You'd have to use the Old English form of "when", which was "ða" (pronounced "thah"), as in "When I was..." etc.) Bear in mind, though, that "while" does still work as a noun, as in "It was a while before I could find the charred remains of the kitty."

I actually have a theory about that. :P "While" looks and sounds remarkably like the German subjunction "Weil", meaning "Because". As "While" is now largely a subjunction too, albeit a synchronous temporal one rather than a causal one,  I suspect the terms are related. Similarly, "eine Weile" in German is often translated as "a spell or period of time" and over the generations it gradually evolved into meaning "during".

^ Wants her copy of "Vogue" back. Well too bad, Haids. This section about fake tans is fascinating stuff.

< Still haven't finished "Dragon Age: Origins" or "Runaway: A Twist of Fate". I bought both games the day they were released.  :o

V Is Keyser Soze
Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor...I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

< Actually, I do blush frequently.  It sucks; when I run into anyone at the store or something, for no reason I'll just get all flushed.  It's embarrassing!
