Home, sick

Looks like I will be spending this weekend at home. I think I have the flu. My throat is sore, I have chest pains, and I'm really, really tired. Thankfully, I have a laptop and a high-speed internet connection, because otherwise I'd go crazy.

Here's a fun blog to read: Overheard in New York, which chronicles snatches of overheard conversations in the world's kookiest city. Enjoy!

I'm telling you for the last time

It's "Au contraire". Not "Oh, contraire!"

It's "correct me if I'm wrong". Not "current me if I'm wrong."

It's "for all intents and purposes". Not "for all intensive purposes".
