Whatever happened to tea and whiskey?


#1733

It was just a tad early for tea and whiskey over here. But feel free to enjoy a tipple as you read my fripple (or whatever it is we are calling what we do).


#1734

Well, I suppose it is - given the 5 hour time difference.

Although it is a Friday … .


#1735

Wot a lotta laggards you lads are.
It’s already Saturday here [has been for 4.5 hours!]
Here’s this week’s offering before I head back to bed for another couple of hours -

How Do I Love Thee?

[ohh well-ll-ll if I MUST - you’re all my favourites too - but Ted Bear Esq. remains my oldest mate.]

Oh, well if it is already Saturday then a whiskey would be just fine. Thank you. But do I have to drink it with tea? I much prefer my Bushmills in coffee.

Here is my weekend write in for #favorite. Quantum Entanglement. Dedicated to @YvonneKindle. Feel free to pick it apart. Nerd out everyone. Now you know how I wasted my college education, but I can still peel an orange in one spiral peel.


#1739

Wow hard to keep up with the weekend from where I am, its early Friday afternoon.


#1740

#1741

You can have it with coffee if you want. I can’t.


#1742

As an Amer-ah-cun, born and bred (same thing?), I’m hoping my fellow lexiconmen* can get the rest of y’all to also start designating the month before the day. July 4th clearly being 7/4, not 4/7.

#1746

I think it’s always “the Fourth of July,” but I’m not 100% sure. Right, Yvonne, Thomas, other Yanks?


#1747

Hey decafs, is that a new avatar?

When we refer to the Holiday it is ‘the Fourth of July.’
When using the date, it is July 4th. Very rarely is it July the 4th.


#1748

worked with international teams for many years and adopted the habit of ‘dd MON’ as in 16 Jul.


#1749

Yes, I downloaded a bunch of Day of the Dead images a long time ago, and I’ve been trying them out.


#1750

Yeah, I thought so.
