Hi linguist!
Rachel! So glad you are still here. :-)

Oddly enough you came up in conversation with me and hubby tonight, remembering that one time in Chicago. We were all so young. And able to hang out without masks.

Don't mention the war.

Or...current one?
My bad. I wasn't supposed to mention not mentioning the war. (There's always a war.)

Hey lshap! Welcome back!

For some reason I read your explanation for the new handle as saying that you'd lost your professional credentials, like if you moved out of state and they wouldn't recognize your professional licensing or something, and so you felt you couldn't honestly call yourself 'linguist' anymore. I figured it out almost immediately, but it was just weird that my brain went there first.

And yeah we can't mention the war on mayonnaise until Biden actually takes office.

I did think of it, but wasn't sure if I should mention it in front of the veil, and in any case I wasn't online at the time.

Veil! Vail! Vale!

Chicago Gryllicon! 2008. We were all babies.

Now everyone is grown up, and married, many WITH babies. Sometimes several.

Have you been getting into some sort of millennial shit where everyone needs to feel validated and acknowledged?

I want you to accept my welcoming remarks without any sort of response!
