Really? Because I know how old he is but I still picture him being in his 60s.

I picture Stephenhero as Lestat de Lioncourt, so, he's 250 years old.

I'm pissed at all of the recent awesome weather days (55ºF-70ºF) days have to be awkward weekdays capped by lame range of temperature weekends (34ºF-55ºF).

Two minor gripes this morning:

1. One of the most important academic journals in my field really likes to publish articles from writers whose native language is not English. This is not a problem in itself, of course, except that the journal either has no copyeditors or else it has copyeditors who are very bad. Often the point that the author is making depends on a very fine distinction, but the distinction gets lost when they try to write in English. Sometimes the result is just funny though. For example, from an article I read this morning: "What is striking, it is the description Husserl makes..." I wonder what the author's native language is. smile.gif

2. I have a friend who always sends me his papers to review before he submits them for publication. Every single time I read his papers, I correct his "in regards to." But when I see the articles in print, they are always full of "in regards to."

The most dreaded sentence a lawyer can hear from a new client: "I have a good mind for this stuff. I really should have gone to law school." uhoh.gif

I think, if you adapt per profession, it's pretty much the warning flag for all professionals. Another bad one in health care is, "I just want you to know my son/daughter/niece/nephew/etc is a lawyer..." When someone starts off a conversation with me like that I know they're going to ask me to write them a cheque for something. I head it off with, "I just want you to know we will NOT discriminate against you even knowing this..."

I mean, in the end, I'm billing the guy for all of the time I spend listening to his little helpful suggestions, so there's that.
