Oh hey forgot I was going to do this earlier. I’m in Phoenix for a couple days, does anyone wanna hang?
in discussing certain tropes in teen wolf fanfiction, i had to differentiate between the story where stiles thinks derek is a hobo and the story where stiles thinks derek is a prostitute.
trying to decide which sock lace pattern to do; contenders:
going to be doing it in grey and black yarn if that influences your opinions. help me deciiiiiiide
loretto is gorgeous!
it is, and i am leaning that way! trying to figure out how much changes if i flip it around, because it’s written top-down and i want to do toe-up and make an indeterminately taller sock
the secret plan to fight inflation is a go
The difference between learning a modern language and an ancient language is that in first year French you learn “Where is the bathroom?” and “How do I get to the train station?” and in first year Attic Greek or Latin you learn “I have judged you worthy of death” and “The tyrant had everyone in the city killed.”
I read years ago that during the Crusades, people on both sides utilized the middle ages equivalent of Arabic/French/German/Etc For Tourists which included needed phrases like “Where is the nearest brothel?” and “Would you sleep with me, maiden?”
I don’t care how historically inaccurate, anachronistic, or ridiculous this is: the image of a stereotypical knight in full armor and a Muslim soldier competitively flipping desperately through their All the Languages For Tourists written by clerks in monasteries (at least on the Christian side) while trying to proposition a woman (language unknown) during a major religious conflict on the mean streets of Antioch never fails to put me in a good mood.
