Jesus, Christopher, get a life.

I see he's back to his "poor pathetic me" routine. I checked the calendar, and he's scheduled to leave AUE for good, vowing never to return, sometime in the third week of April.

But, Dena Jo, you'd miss me so much. I can't leave now. It just wouldn't be right, would it?

My e-mail address is not 'munged' in any way and is fully replyable!
Is your objection that salmon spend part of their ... (edible fish (broadly including freshwater fish) orshellfish or roe etc)"

But you're being literal, Ray, and Areff was waxing poetic. Lox is appetizing. Next you'll be telling me that matjes herring is seafood. For shame. Bob Lieblich Starting to drool

As it happens, when I first read Areff's post, I thought that his objection was to the preparation which lox had undergone, and I began writing a post in which I stated "Sure it is (seafood), and so is lutefisk and pickled herring." At that point, it occurred to me that he might have some other basis for his opinion that lox was not seafood, and so I changed my reply.

The question of whether a given seafood is appetizing didn't enter into it, as can be seen from my mention of lutefisk, which is an acquired taste.

Sorry, Ray, I'm not making myself clear. "Appetizing" is a noun, and it's what "appetizing stores" sell. Try this: . It's not as clear as it might be, but the gist of it is that a true appetizing store is characterized by smoked and kippered fish, dairy products, and snack food.
If Areff hasn't decamped as suddenly as he arrived, perhaps he will produce for our delectation a lengthy paean to the appetizing stores in TFLCIA when he was young. I was educated in such matters by my wife and her mother, who frequented such establishments in the Bronx. It's tough to get really good anywhere south of northern New Jersey. It's getting toughter to get really good appetizing anywhere.

Thus spake Christopher Johnson:
Christopher, please don't access Simon's message. Let it end.

I didn't access Simon's message, Mike, but Franke quoted the whole thing for me, so I saw it anyway. I've learned to listen to Franke. He makes a lot of sense a lot of the time.

What does that mean?
There we have it. Christopher and Simon, you've had exchanges ... both resume your lives as if they had never occurred.

I only mentioned Simon a couple of days ago to clarify what Tony was explaining to Franke about the "format C:" incident. I made *NO* personal remarks whatsoever about Simon in that post.

Why mention someone who to you doesn't exist? ***'s information was rough, but ostensibly correct. Why stick your nose in?
I'm glad you're getting it. Simon, there are things about ... divulge on Usenet. I respect you for making these statements.

If Simon is getting help, I'm pleased for him. I wish him all the very best, I truly do. I ... You and I could even be friends one day, you know. Stranger things have happened. Just get well, Simon. Please.

I just felt much sicker! Go back to pretending to pretend I don't exist.

Oh, while we're on the subject: I was in a ... Surely we can all agree that lox is not "seafood".

Is your objection that salmon spend part of their life in fresh water? If so, then not everyone would agree ... following definition for "seafood": From http://www.cogsci.princeton.edu/cgi-bin/webwn?stage=1&word=seafood "1. seafood (edible fish (broadly including freshwater fish) or shellfish or roe etc)"

Tha' tisn't me objection a-toll, as they say in BrE. I accept that freshwater fish can be considered "seafood" in many circumstances. What I do not accept is that smoked fish can be considered "seafood".

There are other kinds of fish products that are clearly not "seafood". Canned tuna(fish) (= BrE "tinned tunny"??) is derived from that fish known as the tuna, but it is not "seafood".

Next you'll be telling me that matjes herring is seafood.

What about matti lamprhey?
there are things about my life that I've chosen not to divulge on Usenet. I respect you for making these statements.

We will all fantasize about what your life is like anyway, and you might hear about some of those fantasies should you push the wrong buutons on the wrong poster, so it doesn't matter.

You fantasize about the lives of aue'ers, Franke? This sounds interesting. What have you fanatasized? Are the fantasies appropriate for a family newsgroup with readers as young as 15 (or younger) and as old as dirt (or whatever)?

The University of Florida is in Florida (just in case this is overlooked by the casual reader), and bananas are not commonly associated with Florida. They may be grown here, but Florida is not considered the banana state.

Quite right: the banana state, or perhaps Banana State, as eny fule kno, is Queensland. As a Bananalander on my father's side, I know half of what I'm talking about (please do not raise the subject of cane toads). On the other side, of course, I'm a gumsucker, or Gumsucker; but then as a whole I'm a Cornstalk, though not a cornstalk.

British usage has very few of these things, so perhaps it's a Good Thing that I'm now ensconced in a daughter's redundant flat within easy atrocity distance of GCHQ (a friend in Army Intelligence is very funny on the subject of highly-trained intelligence officers getting lost in the new building, which looks like Gloucestershire's answer to Cardiff's Millenniumm Stadium; the British Olympic Committee probably betted on Eavesdropping as a new sport for the '04 or '08 Games). One of my neighbours is sure to be able to tell me what "aue" means in some language unknown to me. But it's good to get amongst you all again, even if next-doors are reading this message ((hey, 14, it's your turn to put out the bins).
As my girls say at the end of all their telephone calls, 'Love you lots'.
Mike.
