Player 2 must respond by naming this or some other person with a first name matching the aforementioned surname. If they cannot then they have a right to challenge player one. Failure to provide an answer results in a loss. If, however, the serve is returned then Player 1 must name a third person in the same fashion.

Today I have the house to myself and no obligations. A bunch of books and movies, music, snacks and writing projects to return to (if I feel like it). Today I reclaim my Slack.

I have an old Roland vs-840 portastudio and a Zip drive. I would like to transfer the audio from zipdisc to my Linux desktop and mix in Reaper. However, “the data on VS-840 Zip discs is proprietary and is not compatible with any computer software and can't be converted.” Of course I could record out of the audio output but this annoys me. Don’t suppose anyone knows of any conversion software?

To clarify: I’m generally not that judgemental or inflexible when it comes to language. The person who said it is lovely and I’m not one to mistake the evolution of language for its demise. I understood what she meant and that’s the main thing. It just jarred grammatically and I couldn’t tell if it was a bit of impromptu improvisation or a new part of the management lexicon! Meh... C’est la vie!

When did “talked” become a synonym for discussed? Is this just niche Corp Speak? Just heard this on a call and then read it in an email. “As talked just now, this has been approved.” Brevity may be the soul of wit, but I fear this trend towards linguistic efficiency may soon have us talking like toddlers.

Wow. I have been having a lot of nightmares recently but last night I did a relaxation and intent-setting exercise before sleep and awoke this morning from a wonderful wish fulfillment dream about my forthcoming birthday. Will definitely try that again.

and the ham-radio dads talk to each other all night long.
about their dying wives and what they ate for lunch and what they'll do with their guns when antifa comes.
