I haven't watched the Grammys yet, even though quite a few artists that I like performed, won something, and/or were nominated for something. 

 

I didn't bring my TV to school with me this year, so that makes it kind of difficult.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

I can see some newbie coming on, clicking this topic first and reading about the different way we count using our fingers and thumbs, and thinking we are all barmy. Some introduction to a Beatles forum.

 

Von Bontee said

What a bizarrely fascinating/mundane thing to be discussing. If I needed to count tens on my fingers, I would go left pinkie => right pinkie. I would hold up my four literal fingers (thumb hidden) to indicate "4" with my hand, since it seems the easiest way to do so. And for "3" I would likewise do the least difficult thing: thumb, index finger, middle finger. And until I saw "Inglourious Basterds" I had NO notion that employing the much-more-difficult (for me, anyways) index/middle/ring finger method was a particularly European thing to do.

This morning as I was getting ready for work, I was listening to Paul's Tug Of War album. When "Ballroom Dancing" came on and he started singing, "One, two, three, four I just plain adore your / Ballroom dancing ..." I found my fingers shooting up along with his call-out of numbers. Of course, I thought of this conversation.

Here's something I found that doesn't really qualify as Beatle news, but more as "Beatle spotting."

Recently, Brian Wilson (of The Beach Boys, but I'm sure you knew that already) did an interview where fans submitted questions via Facebook.  Here's one of the questions:

Question: What is your general reaction to last night's Grammy show - performances and winners?
Brian Wilson: I didn't watch it but I understand Paul and Ringo were on it. Taped it I haven't watched it yet. I heard Paul and Ringo were great.

Wouldn't you like to know... a-hard-days-night-john-2... it's on a shelf in the storage closet. I opted not to throw it away, but I did take all the old CDs to a used CD/book/DVD store and got back enough money for a nice dinner date with the misses.

Nippy. There is a strange red line on it that looks like an exact mirror image of the outline of the toenail. I hit it on the stairs yesterday and it caused severe pain, normally when i do that its sore for say 30 seconds and then it passes, yesterday it lasted for about 10 minutes. So have a Doctors appointment for Monday; if it gets better by then will cancel, if not then it will have been 13 days since initial impact.

bum about the toe. Hope it does get better and you can cancel that appointment.

5 July is the joyous date for the concert.

mmm, in your honor, when I finish teaching my next class, I am going to sit down to these delights. I couldn't find a place that would ship the drink in a glass bottle or can, so I hope it isn't too sacrilegious of me to drink it from a plastic bottle. Should I put the drink in fridge to get it cold? I am so looking forward to this new taste sensation. I will be thinking of you the whole time I am savoring the flavors.

Two years ago, in the summer, while walking home in my sandals, a potato fell out of my bag right on my big toe, hitting precisely on a spot that caused excruciating pain.  I hobbled home and for the following six months my toenail became black and blue and was dangerously seeming to detach from the nail bed.  I persevered to just let it heal by itself without going to a doctor, and I succeeded.  A year later, it was completely healed, as though nothing had ever happened.

Then while at the supermarket in the wine section, I picked out a bottle of a nice Malbec, put it stupidly on my cart where that poorly designed part has a flap where anything smaller than a watermelon can fall out:  As the bottle fell everything became slow-mo in a Brian DePalma movie, and I cried out in horror.  Luckily, my foot stopped the bottle from hitting the floor -- but unluckily, the full weight of it hit right on my big toenail.  Even through tennis shoes, the pain was excruciating.  I remembered the previous year's accident, and this time the pain was markedly worse.  I seriously considered limping to the store office for medical attention.  But again, I soldiered on and checked myself out at the self-check machine and crawled home.  Again, my healing process took a few months -- but remarkably, the damage was much less than the year before and it took less time to get back to normal.  The nail never even became detached this time.  Who woulda thunk that a potato would be mightier than a full wine bottle?

AG, cold. Plastic bottle is fine. Stick it in a fridge for a good few hours and then consume and delight in the taste. Its not to everyone's taste but to us Scots its immense. If you are doing the proper Scottish way add a small packet of crisps (potato chips), not the huge for sharing bags. The childhood of a young boy in Scotland was filled with a can (or bottle) of fizzy juice, packet of crisps and a bar of chocolate. We don't do healthy very well or often.

Let me know what you think, i find it quite interesting. But no lawsuit if you don't find it tickling your taste-buds and i wont be reimbursing you for the cost. a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

FP, the human bodyand life is a funny thing. You can get run over by a car going 70mph and come out with barely a scrap (tho admittedly normally get horribly maimed or killed so don't go doing it folks) yet an Apple hitting you on the head can kill you stone dead there and then.

I read a couple of days ago that the import of this got banned in Canada because of an illegal ingredient, one that it shares with Lucozade and Marmite.

The import got banned but its still sold in Canada, the media in the UK got into a bit of a spin over it. Not that we are thinking of retaliating or anything in a petty manner - we beat the US in proposing to get rid of Beibera-hard-days-night-paul-11.

That makes me recall this amusing story a friend told me: He'd gone to Copenhagen to a university to study the famous Danish philosopher Kierkegaard, and when he moved into a lodging near campus, he felt he'd finally arrived in academe and he'd be able to follow his dream of studying Kierkegaard in the quaintly enchanted land of his birth.  Not long upon moving in, he discovered that a fellow American had moved in next to him -- a woman whose hobby was singing Broadway musical themes, and nearly every day she'd belt out at the top of her lungs "New York, New Yoooooooooorrrrrrrrkkkkk!!!!"  blue-meanie

He decided to abandon his studies; went south for a few weeks, sunned himself in Crete, visited Istanbul, came back home.

I used to have a neighbor who insisted on playing his guitar (acoustic, thankfully) at all hours of the night, and the man could not play it. He wasn't any good, but you'd hear him at 4 AM plucking away. Yet he had the nerve to complain to the office about me making noise one night.

Finished exams and papers and essays and stuff. And of my 3 exams, I already have the results of two of them, and passed both of them. I didn't expect to pass the second one, as I didn't understand much of it.

Yesterday I went out with some classmates and it was great fun, but I was really hungover today, while I hadn't really drunk that much.

^^ Glad to hear you did well in your the two exams you know about, Linde. Sorry about the hangover apple01

I got my results back on a Physics exam I did last week but they're not as good as yours. In fact, I was close to failing. Don't know what's up with me lately, I just can't seem to concentrate. Better get over this thing before I end up really messing my grades up :(

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
