    That's the fog that was in the Midwest for about 36 hours, I'm guessing.

    Christopher Lambert's accent is so weird in that film. I always think of it as the "Man from Europe" accent.

    Huh, and apparently the BBC classifies this instance as a "film crime against the Scottish accent", so there you go.

    The BBC are dumb little toilet babies. That isn't an attempt at a Scottish accent, it's an attempt at a completely neutral, vaguely foreign accent that one might have if say, they had traveled extensively for hundreds of years. It was a real reach for Christopher Lambert (who barely spoke English) and he largely pulled it off. His actual Scottish accent isn't great, but I've heard worse.

    Holy shit, I just saw the most amazing ethering in an email. Nothing was said that was angry or could be construed as less than professional, but you could also feel the contempt dripping off every word.

    I will organize the rest of my career around never getting on this guy's bad side.

    I am currently an hour from home, halfway between it and my interview site. To reach my interview site now will take 1.5 hours. To reach my home from the interview site now would take 1.5 hours.

    So he was doing Man from Europe, and he nailed it.

    But his accent in the beginning, before he learns he's a Highlander and when he was actually supposed to be Scottish should be Scottish, right?

    yeah in the flashback bits set before he started travelling he has a way more pronounced Scottish thing going

    or at least it sounds like it to me?

    That is supposed to be Scottish. It's not perfect, I don't know if I'd call it good, but it's fine. I've heard many, many worse attempts at a Scottish accent from native English speakers who therefore have less of an excuse.

    I'm so appreciating my statistics professor last semester. He taught the material in such a clear way, and his notes are so useful, that I feel like I understand the material much clearer than my current professor (nonparametric stats but we're going over linear regression) is explaining.

    When my analyst proofreads my documents, she always thinks I should add commas where I don't think I need any. Her husband has been a high school English teacher for decades and she thinks she's an authority. In many ways she is! Just not in the area of dependent / independent clauses.

    I'm only thinking about it now because I've just spent all day drafting a 2,000+ word document and I know she's going to add a bunch of commas to it. Even that wouldn't be so bad - I'm the one who ultimately finalizes the document and I'll do it the way I want to, but after she proofreads she brings the marked-up paper copy to my office and reviews every modification with me one at a time. I don't want to tell her to forget about punctuation because she does catch other stuff that I want corrected. We also have a pretty good partnership that I prefer not to test.

    This is not a plea for advice. It's me whining about having an old high school English teacher proofread my documents by proxy.

    As the son of a former highschool English teacher I can relate.

    I'm back at work now. It's accentuated that my home network is garbage and I'm replacing my modem/wifi combo with some new shit. I may also get a better plan from Comcast. Not sure if I can get reimbursed on it. I just ordered it without asking for approval first. Eh, whatever.

    As it turns out she didn't even come in to the office today. She called this morning and asked if I needed her to, and I said no, thinking of this very thing that I actually do need her to do but am happy to put off.

    Somehow Taco Bell has become my default for an emergency fast-food drive through when I'm stuck in the field. I think it's a combination of multiple factors. Low price, fast service, easy driver's seat eating, acceptable taste.

    Oh, and that they're everywhere. So when I'm two hours past when I should have had lunch and thinking fuck I have to eat something, there's the Bell.

    Whenever I try to write anything long-form I abuse the shit out of commas, semicolons, and dashes. I remember seeing a joke about how programmers are way more prone to using parentheticals (which I do a lot in short-form text, like this very aside) which nailed me, and those are basically the way to cheat parentheticals into actual text.
    I also do parentheticals all the time and just reread an email I sent this morning where I realized not only did I do a nested parenthetical, I didn't close one of them and it's too late to retract.

    In high school a friend and I bought tickets and went into a movie theater that had a Highlander II poster outside, but it was a mistake - the movie they actually showed was something I can only assume must have been titled Attack of the Dumbshit Bird Men.

    We were so mad at the theater.

    I still think it's time for a highlander reboot where the plot revolves around trying to keep the immortals and decapitations secret in our self imposed surveillance society.

    I read a thing with a writer from the show where someone asked why there were no police investigations into all these kidnappings and the response was "we realised that if we addressed that we'd essentially never do anything else, you just have to sort of go with it". I think that's fair enough tbh.

    My office put out urns of hot cider today because they felt we needed a cold weather treat.

    It's 55°F out right now. 4 years ago I'd probably have worn shorts outside if it were 55° in February, but today I'm like "Yeah, it is definitely chilly enough to warrant hot cider."

    Truly I have been softened by SoCal.
