  1. If Ms. Avend thought the article was “fascinating,” she apparently has not yet read all the comments.

  2. While I’d like to upgrade my skills, I find myself hestitating to contact her or visit the web site. Perhaps I am finally developing a “spidey sense.” That would explain the tingling sensation.

  3. I admire the way that Our Risen Lord John engineered the site all those years ago to cause a jump to occur just at the right moment as to spare us staring at Elsa’s Smarmy Stock-Photo face any longer.

    That’s some serious Kwisatz Haderach prescience right there.

    (Appropriately, from the Hebrew ‘Keifitzat Haderech’ . . . ‘The Way’s Jump’. Yes, I do have a girlfriend. Why do you ask?)

  4. My daughter is going to watch the new film with me for two reasons:


    Or as we like to call him, ‘Timmy-wimmy-shamalama-ding-dong’.

  5. I think you (without young children) need to find the video with the woman who keeps mispronouncing “Benedict Cumberbatch.” It’s quite amusing, and a bit raunchy in spots (hence the parental notice).

  6. Padraic Sant’s day passed without any comments? Thought you cousins were crazy about the Irish. Comment made from a fellow Celt but Brythonian rather than Gaelic.

    1. As Patrick wasn’t technically canonized as a Saint, and wasn’t actually Irish, I am not inclined to wear green on his day. But it’s true that I might be crazy otherwise.

      I have never been across the ocean to Ireland and therefore shouldn’t judge, but I’ve heard that remarkable things are found in their peat bogs…

  7. ‘Tis true, Ace. You can’t compete with peat. It’s replete.

    Steve, I’ll see you ‘Benedict Cumberbatch’ and raise you BC himself mispronouncing the word ‘penguins’ repeatedly in a nature documentary. Do YouTube it. Very amusing.

  8. I can’t find the raunchy lady, Steve, but I’ll keep trying.

    I’m not talking about the one you referred to in your post. Just generally.

  9. Ironically, although my wife’s lovely, I’d rather I dated a girl who wrote novels about history.

  10. Sadly I’m not sufficiently endowed to provoke such a reaction, Ace. Either humourously or amourously.

  11. Much thanks to You Printer Helpers! these folks are magnificent and resolve my printer driver overhaul issue inside a negligible portion of minutes. Taking achievable administrations from a particularly incredible firm genuinely satisfied me. The manner in which the expert group works is considerable. Energetically suggested.

  12. I think we should actually speak English like this. It’s so much more energetically suggestible.

  13. BroMu, your words carry the not inconsiderable weight of hard-won wisdom. Such flowery verbiage softens the blow of crass service-hawking. The splendor nearly moves one to part with precious bits of treasure, but the purse-strings are tied with a fiendish contrivance which the sharpest Damascus blade cannot defeat.

  14. If you come to Gravesend I’ll give it a go with a Stanley knife, Ace.

    Damascus be damned.

  15. Thanx, Nxxx. Fireworks have been banned in my city and county, so it should be an enjoyable Fourth.
