Now that you have mentioned our first and only son, did you make contact with his educational institution about arranging extra assistance?

Husband, I believe that task was your own.

Nay, I have established a precident of asserting myself hence we have difficult relations and they are unwilling to partake in further communications with me.  I suggest you try contacting them yourself, wife.

I accept. However, the task I am currently engaged is is far more personally important to me than securing the best education for my child. I will attend to it when all other important tasks are discharged.
Chut up!

Did you al read the French subtitles (or--horrors--the French dubbing) for "Jack Twist? Jack NASTY!"

"Jack Twist? Jack Contre La Nature!"

I am in love with that!! Must use it somewhere!
I've learnt that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in!

I'm going out of town for three days, away (sob!) from computer contact.

Wow, in three days you can have lots of acronyms done!  I'll look forward to it, Katherine.  And will miss you.

Thanks, Elle! And I missed you guys so much I actually had to go to a public library, get on a computer, and check in! So I've been hunched in my carroll, giggling hysterically over this thread, the wondrous acronyms threads and the photo thread where Kirkmusic poses as Jake (it's not that you don't look great as Jake, Kirkmusic, because you do, it's the concept that's hilarious!) Anyway, I'm being disruptive.

I must caution you, I utterly lack skill in the culinary arts. However, I can adroitly maneuver a can opener.

Oh my, I really needed to find this thread tonight, was feeling a bit dejected (saw too much of that Pope on tv today!). SO funny, you are genii! (geniuses??).
I love in particular this quote, and the former by you too,
Katherine!

Thanks, Isabelle!

And Sparkle, I have to tell you that I read this one Thursday afternoon and thought, "What the --?" Completely stumped. Finally, after three hours of driving (and thinking about -- well, what else?) I suddenly got it and laughed.

I am encouraging you to press the flesh of my lower appendages, you figure of a person or an animal manipulated by a ventriloquist.

"Jack Twist? Jack Contre La Nature!"

Oh blimey, this is even worse than the French translation of the short story! Is this what the French subtitles of the MOVIE on DVD say???
At the theater, the French subtitles were really not so bad (it didn't say 'Jack contre la nature!!)/color]
