  1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Ah now we come to a point of contention: as an American expat in the UK, I cannot get on-board with shortening "vegetables" to an apparently singular "veg".

    Although most British people may think the word "trash" is an American one, it's an old English word, Shakespeare used it three times in his plays. I can't make my trivia anymore pointless than that. :)

    Yes, 'taking out the trash' was Shakespearian next gen code for patricide.

    Fun fact: the plural noun is patricides.

    I've come around to it, even if it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. After all, we're comfortable saying "stats".

    Statistics indicate that 'stats' is popular.

    I count 11 occurrences throughout his works. One of the (many) words used only once is dildo, for whatever that's worth. The longest word used once is honorificabilitudinitatibus.

    Frank... oops, I mean Bill said dildo. Quality.

    Think I got on one of those buses in Germany once.

    There's a Dildo on the west side of the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland, just down from New Harbour; there's a South Dildo just below that too.

    I've never been up or down there, myself.

    From what I've heard, there's not much to the place. A quick in-and-out is enough, should you be curious.

    Now I'm confused.

    Anyway Mrs P refers to it as offal.
    (PS this isn't because I'm offaly good at it.)
    (PPS hope that comes across properly)
