Random Rants ΠΕ': You're standing on my neck. The thread title uses Roman numerals for numbering and means 86. The title itself is an expression coined by Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, when he became annoyed at an Opposition member one day in the House of Commons. The reporters tried to pin down exactly which un-Parliamentary word he had uttered, but he told them it was "fuddle-duddle"... and that has since become part of the Canadian vocabulary. Rant: Maddy has developed a new habit: Jumping up on the counter next to the sink and relaxing like it's one of her regular napping places. I have no idea why she does that, since I don't leave the water running and there's nothing there for her to eat. She knows she's not allowed to be there but does it anyway... so I have had to re-clutter what I'd previously un-cluttered. * * * About the poll I included... I know it's customary to spend the first page or two sniping and snarking about the thread title. But we're all under stress and since the regulars here know I don't deal well with criticism of my titles, could we please skip the vitriol (whether joking or real) and express like or dislike for the title in a more civil way? I am curious as to whether a poll might work for this, to help cut down on hard feelings and complaints (yes, I'm guilty of complaining about titles, too). Consider this an experiment, and let's see where it goes.
