Small Talk Six: 6 T-shirts I've read and loved
Please scroll down for Weekend Funnies

Once I got stuck in a shop reading shirts on display. Most were yahoo and google-related. Elsewhere these are some I love:

1. When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before righteous...

2. If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance I wonder how some skeleton would dance on two left feet :D

3. Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake
my search result says Napoleon Bonaparte uttered this. I think the general meant it to be a tactical secret for his men

and these are not from the shop:

4. Don't wake me. I'll wake you. my son's; I used to worry about the pooch farting near the crib

5. My middle name is Trouble the kid wearing this was smiling sweetly next to his Dad; thought my own son should be a proud owner of this shirt too. During unlucky days he is Mr. Trouble Extraordinaire

6. and a friend was given this shirt to wear, 'on a dare,' according to her. The shirt never got past our hotel room, but I remember being amused.

Customer: Listen pal; don't start getting technical on me! I'm not Bill Gates.

Customer: I have problems printing in red...
Tech support: Do you have a color printer?

A woman customer called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer.
Tech support: Are you running it under windows?
Customer: 'No, my desk is next to the door, but that is a good point. The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a window, and his printer is working fine.'

And last but not least...
Tech support: 'Okay Colin, let's press the control and escape keys at the same time. That brings up a task list in the middle of the screen. Now type the letter 'P' to bring up the Program Manager.'
Customer: I don't have a P.
Tech support: On your keyboard, Colin.
Customer: What do you mean?
Tech support: 'P'.....on your keyboard, Colin.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
