We can always count on you. CYC! A+++
very cool, patois! i minored in German so could follow your conversation except for the idiomatic americanisms! A+++
i say you guys not yinz,too. guess i am not a true yinzer!
Consider yourself *highly* commended.
i have it on my ipad and read bits of it now and again, in between other things. i understand her support of Mittens, she’s pragmatic rather than an idealogue.
you are a wonderment and a treasure, truthy. sorry i missed seeing this first off. A+++++
how cold is it up ‘ehr? example of Pittsburghese argot ; )
15 this morning, 32 now heading to mid 40s. We’re going to have a day-and-a-half of April before the cold comes back.
you know, the more i think about this, i wonder if it’s not a function of being a lawyer. you look at various legal strategies in a case, and you decide on the best one to win. there is NEVER a strategy that doesn’t have drawbacks, risks, weak spots, etc. in it, but you assess the range of choices and you pick the one most likely to WIN, and you don’t sit there and bellyache about what’s wrong with the strategy you have chosen because that is pointless, you just go great guns and do the best with what you’ve got. and you don’t sit there and try to cultivate a weak strategy either, because that is also pointless. you go with the highest winning percentage possible. that’s how i see Ann’s support of Mittens. she’s made her assessment, and she’s going for it.
Black ice. Once it melts it will freeze. My village was lax with the salt, causing a bus accident last week on my hill. I slid all over it attempting to get up. Very bad and cheap of them. Someone blew it. I hear others will be attending.
Attending the meeting to complain, that is.
Are you sure you’re not from Jersey?
We’re all very fortunate that most of the argot of the “Occupy” movement has not leaked out into the general culture.
All we get is “We are the 99 percent!” and that terminally annoying “People’s Microphone”. That’s more than enough!!!!
Trying to purge the lexicon of such speech proceeds at a snail's pace, ergo esc-argot...
Try not moving your lips!
(Sorry, couldn't resist.)
