Would like to hear more about the Bunnies, the episode seemed to have stopped at an odd part. I guess I’m listener #9?
In reference to when you read my comment, I’m not actually a she. I fixed things so my gravatar displays.
Ladies, after listening to this one through, I decided to give an old “friend” a call, just in case.
No, no children. Yes, she is still a lesbian.
Chris – see link above
mavjop – Hey, thanks for the correction, and thanks for chiming in.
Rish – She’s not straight-for-you, huh? Bummer, but at least you called an old friend!
Oh, so, Abbie also asked about the pronunciation of my handle/username. I pronounce it mav (rhymes with “have”) jop (rhymes with “hop”; standard English hard J).
I say “I pronounce it” because there could be a different pronunciation more authoritative than mine, though my understanding of the source language’s pronunciation leads me to believe I am doing so correctly.
I usually leave it mysterious/ambiguous, but I shall share with the class. It is the Klingon word for “paper clip”. Paper clip?! Yes. Paper clip. I found it hilarious that a race so combatative that their language does not even have a word for “hello” (instead, the standard greeting is “What do you want?!”) and their mating ritual involves the female throwing heavy objects and the male ducking a lot … nonetheless have a word for paper clip. You would think that if they ever had to keep paperwork together they’d stick it to a desk or a wall using a dagger or something. I love the cognitive dissonance of it.
