wellreadneck: Sat in the backyard and watched the Northern Lights on Monday, awakened by an earthquake on Tuesday, wonder what today will bring?


Frost and rain
I slept right through it.

Finally a reason for the crumbling bridges?

HenryFnord: ObscureNameHere: Actually, correction: I pronounce it "pooh - teen", not "pooh- tine".

And is Longueuil pronounced Lon-gi, Lon-guy, Lon -gay, Throat-Warbler Mangrove, or something else?


Can't really find a phonetic way for an English speaker to pronounce the "-ueuil" part. It sounds exactly like "oeil" (French for "eye"), but that doesn't really help, does it?

Anyhoo, here's the wiki entry with phonetics guide. I suppose "Lon-gay" would be the closest equivalent.

Valiente: Mjeck: For a moment I thought Jesus returned to punish me for all my sins.

It's funny how a slave can have a huge ego. "Oh, Insert deity here, I submit utterly in every particular to your very bigness, and yet fully expect that my most trivial transgressions will cause you to personally manifest for me, because, you know, it's ME."

I'm in Varennes, not far from the epicenter, and was awake at the time. It felt like someone was trying to drive a large truck through the house. Perhaps surprisingly, the cats were unperturbed.

There is probably no truth to the ongoing rumour that it was Pauline trying to forcibly rip Québec away from Canada (not my joke).

That should be, "We will rebuild, eh?" but I'm too busy at work to PS.

HenryFnord: ObscureNameHere: Spartacus Outlaw: is poutine pronounced "pow-tine" or "pooh-tine" ?

I say "pooh-tine", but then I am filthy Anglo. Or as we say in Ontario, 'normal'. 

/I believe the Kweebeckers pronounce it 'Thibodeau'

Thank you Mr. O'Leary


Interviewer: "O'Leary? That's a very Anglo name --"

Interviewee (who speaks no French but is pretending to be French-speaking but wants the job interview conducted in English to practice): "It's pronounced Thibodeau!"

:)

/it is funny because growing up in small town Ontario there was always those one or two kids with French last names that no one knew how to pronounce. I knew a kid whose last name was "Thibodeau" -- everyone just called him "Tee-bow" (no, not THAT one, we are talking 30+ years ago).

FTFY, I'm sure the French kids knew how to pronounce their own names...
