Is that the Ontario equivalent of "I'll be moving to Canada"?

I've got friends in Gatineau - more correctly, in Mulgrave et Derry - it's a nice place to live!

It's more the Ottawa equivalent. Quebec is just across the river.

You just killed your second tablet. Maybe it's false economy not to buy one of those expensive cases, hmmm?

Kallah, I go through phases of sleepiness like you describe from time to time. The first I can remember was right after my first semester in college; I think I'd been running on adrenaline and once the pressure was off, I just crashed. Another time it turned out to be a b-12 deficiency. I think every time has been during the winter, meaning weather could have been a factor. Here's hoping it resolves for you within a couple weeks as it usually does for me, but if it doesn't, you might want to check with your doctor.

Don't walk around holding an open stanley knife in your hand, especially if there's any chance that you might be waving your hand around at the same time that someone else is waving their hand around.


Additional: don't do anything that requires the use of sharp knives when you're dog tired and not really paying attention

Dawn, you're using a laptop, not a manual typewriter--there is no need to pound on the keys like you're driving nails in a 2x4.

Dawn, if you want to heat up something in the microwave, it really helps to set a cook time and then hit start.
Also, what did you expect when you bought 'short' jeans? Next time get average!

Hey there, former coworker of mine. When did you move to Maryland?

One of my coworkers used to hammer her keyboard too. In her defense, she'd been a secretary and typist for 20 some odd years with a manual typewriter, so it was deeply ingrained in her muscle memory. She'd wear through the keys on her keyboard in a year or so. We started stockpiling the old IBM metal keyboards as they have the longest life under that kind of abuse.

I can tell how enthusiastic one of my attorneys is by how hard he hits the keys. When he's really getting into it, it sounds as if he's using a manual typewriter.

Yvonne Elliman sings better than I do. I was belting out "I Don't Know How to Love Him" and forgot some of the words, hastened to Youtube and, sigh, it's true, Yvonne Elliman sings better than I do. A lot better. And another thing I shouldn't have to tell myself, don't go to youtube if you don't want to get sucked in - and speaking of that, am I the only person here who had never seen James Corden doing Crosswalk musicals before. Oh my god .

Stop being surprised that anti-gun control proponents have only four or five arguments that they keep cycling through over and over again.

To be fair, I keep hearing the same rhetoric from the other side as well.

I have been discussing gun control with a guy on Facebook, and somehow it means I have to cite my references and provide links to actual data, and he just says "NO, that is not so" or quoting Ann Coulter. I really should know it is pointless, since he has now shifted the goalposts a couple of times.

Before starting to build a piece of furniture, read the instructions carefully. No, really. The other day, you almost had to restart everything from scratch, and you were almost finished.

I really don't think there are new arguments on either/any side of this, at least not since the invention of rapid-fire weapons; or that the age of the arguments is the problem.

I think the problem is that the sides disagree on which arguments they think matter.

I think the problem is that every time there is an incident all we get is sniping, usually at straw. We aren't ever going to move it ahead unless there is some actual discussion on the topic.
