I just got out of a meeting I've been in since 9am. Of course, when the meeting wrapped up, it started pouring and I had to run back to my office in the rain. Good timing, Mr. Rain Maker. Anyway, here's the quote that I was going to post but then got called into the meeting.

A living language is like a man suffering incessantly from small haemorrhages, and what it needs above all else is constant transactions of new blood from other tongues. The day the gates go up, that day it begins to die.
-H.L. Mencken, writer, editor, and critic (1880-1956)

That's a long meeting. How did you stay awake? Did you get free lunch again?

Maria asked me to take notes for the whole meeting, so that was a pretty good reason to stay awake. :-P

Yep, free lunch, but I missed breakfast (this is no minor thing for me!) because Maria asked me to come over before I had eatten my oatmeal (and missing that fiber has messed up my system... ntuc. :-P).

lol. Thanks for sharing! :-p
I had oatmeal for the past four days or so, and it actually messed me up. :-p

Did you get writer's cramp?

Heh, if it's any comfort, I keep having to walk the dog in the morning when it's raining. There's some sort of weird storm system messing up the Gulf.
