In non-political news, I'm good on beer for a while. Also, whoever saw a bowl of mochi and thought "I should put that in a waffle iron" is actually pretty smart.

So, after thinking about my options, I picked up an XBone. Wasn't expecting the 1.2 Gb update it required as soon as I turned it on, nor the 2 hours it took to download over my DSL. But it's done, and working. For now. My luck, it'll explode tomorrow.

Death Blizzard update, the morning before edition: we've been bumped up slightly, 5-7 inches (of snow), winter storm warnings have been declared!

Yup, El Nino winter has definitely made everyone soft, 5-7 inches (of snow) isn't a winter storm worthy of warnings and doom or gloom, it's a succession of Kodak moments.

The kids will be getting new beds this spring, maybe bunk beds depending on how expensive they are, the extra space would be nice (essential).

I have done my unclely duty and have taken my nephew to see Star Wars. We wore our Star Wars shirts and I answered Star Wars questions and got him Star Wars candy and we went in search of Star Wars toys afterwards. He plans to design the pop-up/drop-down guns that I want on my car, he fell in love with the scene where the gun dropped down and started picking off enemies.

I wish I had known this in November. My brother had a beautiful bunk bed he was getting rid of. You could have had it for free. It was hand made by my engineer father in his wood shop and solid oak.

I haven't seen the movie yet (gasp!, I know, I know); do you mean the drop-down belly gun on the Falcon? That was a pretty good scene in ESB when they used that gun to take out the advancing snowtroopers in the Hoth hanger.

But... if you want pop-up automated cannons, you can't do better than the scene at the end of The Expanse episode 4, "CQB", when the Tachi escapes.

Remember the Cant.

Rhymes with "age", "page" or "rage". Is it different in the UK?

If you speak 'Murican, then it's pronounced "preacher".

Okaay...

Anyway, the day before the Death Blizzard is going well, only a couple of things will be needed from the store, and it's sunny and warm (38 degrees!).

The snow will be a welcome respite from the monotony of January.

Thankyou, everybody.

No, but there appear to be a number of regional variations in the US which are making my job just that tiny bit harder at the moment... Still, nothing to complain about. After all, af at first you don't succ-say-juh, try, try, try again.

I heard a lecture in high school about how American accents are closer to Shakespeare original due to the fact that around colonial times before the revolution mainland British commoners started emulating their upper class, leading to the various British accents we know today, while the colonists couldn't keep up with the times, and thus didn't evolve, and lead to the split in style.

So it's actually you all butchering the classics, not us!

Given when the first British colonists arrived in the Americas, that first part is pretty likely; mainland British accents evolving from commoners trying to emulate the upper classes, not so much, given quite how much they vary (and how deeply they differ from the Queen's English, in very many respects). That the American accent got 'stuck', so to speak, given its relative isolation, makes sense.

I remember someone saying they'd traced back the stereotypical American accent/a lot of early dialect words to East Anglia, but I can't remember who said it and why, so it may be rubbish.
