Today is the third time my friend in Ohio has phoned before 5 a.m., forgetting about my time zone; Vancouver's on TV often enough that it's not a "Huh? Where?" podunk any more, so why she keeps forgetting just what time it is here in Downtown Canada from her location is perplexing, what with her figuring we must up, dressed & watching Terence & Philip already ("Uncle Fucka.."). 0/o. Her written English is spot-on, but spoken it's still quite stilted (her first language being Tagalog); I guess speaking & writing are like singing versus talking; different cerebral hemispheres.

That and the fact that cell phones are most un-ergonomically designed; you can listen, or talk but not at the same time, the audio pick-up being awkwardly located as is the the audio output aperature. I want an old fashioned receiver piece like I grew up with. Time to save up for that land line ...

She is on LJ, so she won't see this...
