I was very impressed (and impressionable) when I read Nineteen Eighty Four in 1985. I often think: “that’s NewSpeak” when I hear the disinformation spewed out by people who want to change the truth. The difficulty you raise of trying to live disconnected is real, at least it was for us here when we were having to book our appointments for Covid vaccines (3 times!), but that is only one example.
Bon jour MDY! Welcome to OTP.
It’s not my first appearance here, but I’m not as dedicated as I would like.
Bonjour MDY. Ah oui, tout le monde aime une pizza bien faite ! Délicieux, et l’aropma est encore meilleur. Miam!…
Hahaha…who says a ‘spacebar’ doesn’t have anything to say….looks like I said it TWICE. I would like to suggest that it must have been some kind of ‘glitch’ but I’m confident that the reason for it lies somewhere between the chair and the keyboard! Oh well, it gave me a chance to practice my French (The little green owl, Duo, from Duolingo will be so proud of me!) Do pardon my duplicate submission. I’m gonna go make a pizza…..
Bien joué to MDY submitting their OTP en Français!
Mine is a little rusty, but I’ll leave you my favorite Gallic phrase: “Une fois, j’ai mangé un singe cuit au four avec du fromage et il avait le goût du poulet.”
