This explanation of why most romantic languages use a vairant of "si(c)" for "yes", except for the French, is all I want from comparative linguistics. ♥
I always figured Norway dominates the Winter Olympics because, well, they’re Norway! They have a shit ton of snow and ice! Of course they’re good at it. But there’s more to it than that, apparently.
Still sick with the plague. I am so tired of not feeling well that I totally lost my mind this morning. Fortunately, my husband has not filed for divorce yet. #veryluckymushroom
Watching Olympic hockey - since I am unfamiliar with the flags, it took me a few minutes to figure out we were playing Slovenia, not Slovakia, because NBC decided to abbreviate the team name as SLO. This seems kind of useless. Couldn’t they use SVK and SLV or something that actually distinguishes country names?
Anyway good morning here's some close ups of Pancake's face.
She went to go sniff at me as I was taking these https://glitch.social/media/vqfcif4-DDu6PGm9JFs https://glitch.social/media/EH--t1CbYbeCnE6K6gI https://glitch.social/media/lDmoAJ1hydFHv0JmsEU https://glitch.social/media/AVDYk8ab40HoSPOBV50
So I’m finally getting near the end of #mastokal2017 and I’m running out of yarn. I started with exactly the yardage they suggested so I guess maybe I just knit large?? Anyway, I can see that I’m going to run out during the striped, before I get to the seed stitch section. Did anyone else have this issue? Should I just stop when I run out? It seems like no one would notice anyway but I’m curious as to what others might have done. #yarnuary
