Post Re: US Presidential Election 2008

Don't worry, Beth, I don't think she's going to be able to hold up to closer scrutiny, and the questions she's bound to have to answer from the media as the campaign continues.
For instance, it's...

Post Re: Margaret Atwood: Oryx and Crake

I'm lured into this too. I looked up The Canadian Oxford Dictionary, Ang, and almost all the meanings are positive. Predictable ironic exceptions - e.g., "well, this is a fine state of affairs!"

That seems very hard on you, bill; what if it's really not a very good book?

And Col has the most scrupulously fair-minded approach ..

Post Re: Things my tutors made me do

Darker stuff, these last two, Jennifer. I think "settlement" is effective - "finding" and "charting" don't work, but violence ("knifes") does. What we do to countries, what we do in relationships?

I have no trouble adopting BJ's friend's policy ... unless other people are having a good discussion - as maybe on the P - and I'll stay with it.

Post Re: Avatars

Pretty much what I guessed, Col (just didn't know for sure about the technical possibilities.)

Sounds as if we like it for the same reasons. Let's leave it as is.

Thanks, Jennifer.

You're probably right about the poem ... I had just been looking through a collection of Toulouse-Lautrec's paintings, and found some surprises. I was going for a kind of...

Thanks, Ang.

(It was either one of those or some disguised version of the "red hat" picture.)

Forgot to ask Col why these don't show alongside the posts anymore. Maybe too many Simpsons!

Post Re: Notes on a Scandal

And I confess to only having seen the film/DVD, Ophelia. However, Zoe Heller in the "extra features" section of the DVD agrees with you (and me) about the Divine Miss Blanchett.

Post Re: Book 54: THE HANDMAID'S TALE by Margaret Atwood

But I think Atwood was indeed...

Don't take it to heart, Ang.

(It is a bit blatant, innit? The "school-marming", that is. Not the same as teacherly, to avoid offense to all teachers.)
