I would just like to say that, though I initially was marrying R only for the money, I've grown rather fond of her.
I am seriously confused about the Nobel Peace Prize. It, like literature, has officially drifted off my radar. Well, okay, literature usually picks a high-quality author, but it has a Germanic - including English - bias. Economics isn't really a Nobel Prize, so I don't care. Chemistry and the rest are still pretty decent. But it's like how Elephant and Fahrenheit 9/11 won the Palme d'Or at Cannes. I will admit that Fahrenheit was certainly the film of the moment and was exactly what a lot of people were looking for, and that Moore was very skillful in plugging that hole. But a Palme d'Or?
We really like where we're having the reception. If only it weren't 10 miles from the hall.
My Donut Pod died with a 1437 error. There's a Donut Wheel store down the block. I may take it in. I don't have internet at home right now, otherwise I'd try to fix it there. The only question is whether it would cost money to fix it like that.
I tried to post a reply on a web-log about this, but it wouldn't go, so I will post it here. A man was replying to an article in his web-log and referred to the author of the article as Dr. Such-and-Such. The author of the article was not styled as Dr. Such-and-Such in the article, nor were any indications of his credentials given in the article, but the man was personally known to the bloggeur (and I have made his acquaintance too, actually, now that I think of it). I was going to comment that the man has a Ph.D., not an M.D. or D.D.S. or whatever, and thus should properly not be addressed with the title Doctor any more than a man with a J.D. should (NB: the bloggeur has a J.D.). Especially as the publication did not make any mention of his credentials - though we are all familiar with them. Many people have Ph.D.s, and unless they style themselves as Doctor, they should not be addressed as Doctor, and even if they do style themselves as Doctor, you are best off not indulging them. I keep saying this. Nobody heeds me.
Oh good grief, I think this may kill us all.
