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.

People who dogear pages in books instead of using bookmarks like civilized people should be taken out and shot.

I changed my name over two years ago, but for some reason this I keep giving people my maiden name this morning. Sigh.

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.

Aha! They *do* abbreviate Slovakia as SVK. But leaving Slovenia as SLO does leave a bit of ambiguity. I know I was wondering which country they meant. But maybe it was just me.

Also, why do we call Dutch people Dutch instead of Hollanders or Netherlanders?

Yeah, I’m sick and watching way too much TV - why do you ask? 🤪

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?
