Underhand name-changing Nov 3, 2020

Just a couple more unhelpful, unnecessary and unsolicited pieces of advice:

Forget about the cat. It's not going to help you out. Like Magnificat in Southwark Cathedral, everything is about The Cat, not you. All that winding itself around your leg, back-arching and purring doesn't mean what you think it means. What that means is "Remember to make sure my Whiskas are in the bowl sharpish today, woman. Remember who's in charge here. Do you seriously think I'm going to sit around here wasting my time licking my paws simply because there's no tuna to be had?"

And I get your anxiety, I really do, but the sudden overnight name change? It might help, I agree, in the long run, but it might be premature, far too early to take such a drastic move. Like I said before, it's probably all a big misunderstanding, so no need to try and rush into anonymity just yet. Still, it's done now, so that's torn it.


See, I assumed I was always me on ProZ (nothing to hide, even my Aero-anxiety), but then when you called me 'A Burt', I initially thought you were addressing me as 'a Burt' and I nearly Googled it to see if it was a compliment or an insult until I realised my name had somehow changed to such, so I hastily changed it back to reveal the true me again. Wasnie my intentional doing, I can assure you.

All of those. But please stick to the topic (and be sure the topic doesn't stick to you)

I used to love Topics. That's a proper chocolate bar right there. I haven't seen them for years though – maybe they've been ditched to make way for all the new and weird Aero flavours?

I was in a hurry Nov 3, 2020

They might have been down earlier, but it looks to me like nobody's being very serious now! Is all your work equipment functioning 100% again?


I haven't read carefully all the comments before, as I was in a hurry to leave. I had to go my old mum, too... and visiting my "loved ones".
My city is not the same, streets are almost empty, there are more policemen and patrols on the streets, people's expressions are different, but we make an effort to smile and tell some jokes to give a loud laugh.
Tomorrow, it will be declared the state of emergency.
Yes, everything is fine with my work equipment. My computer is protected against any virus right now (a license's problem), except its owner.
I'm sorry, today is my "serious" day, but I enjoyed the chocolate's topic.
I will try to change my mood

Hee-hee!! Very sharp there, Exy.

I'm very sorry about the state of emergency, though. We might be joining you back on the balconies in a day or so.

Stay safe!

We will overcome this together! It's only a passing thing, a dark shadow.
Here's how (in a funny way) Portuguese deal with quarantine.
They learn new things like learning how to do wine tasting:

My Achilles' heel Nov 3, 2020

Thank you very much, your sentence is almost perfect, just GLI instead of LE since my son is a male

Bigh hug!

Feminine and masculine were always one of my weaknesses. Thanks!
A big one for you too!

It has already been corrected in the tile: "le" with "gli".

@Angie Nov 4, 2020

Angie,

Mick (Jagger) rang me last night. The guy's always ringing me, never gives me a moment's peace, but this time I used it to my advantage to ask him if the Stones could maybe do a little song for you. "Any song at all," I said. "It would help," I added, "although for no particular reason, if you could ask Keith and the guys to kind of rejuvenate a little and wear the clothes of many, many years ago." He said "Of course, of course we'll do that," and so here it is:

You're welcome Nov 4, 2020

Although it was as much as I could do to get Jagger off the bloody phone. Kept saying Miss You, and wanted to come around with some Puerto Rican girls, he said, who're "just dyyyyyyin' to meetcha". He also said something about bringing a case of wine and fooling around like we used to. I had to tell him to bog off and pull himself together, maybe hit Madison Square Gardens or something, get it out of his system ...

Talking about Mick Nov 4, 2020

You know the story about Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithful and the Mars bar?

And that all three of them have always denied it ever happened?

What? You can already see where this is going?

Fine. Add your own punchline then.
