Am I A Word Guy Because of Monty Python?

By gorn, I think I am.

If you can get through this "Flying Circus" sketch and laugh and then look at all words through the woody/tinny prism, then we should go get a drink sometime -- unless you're Derek, because that last post really freaked me out.

I watched this sketch with my equally nerdy family when I was a shorty, and I've been considering words as either "woody" or "tinny" since. We'd go round and round about which category certain words belonged in. Sometimes these conversations would get quite violent, leading social services to put my sister and me in foster care for a short time. But our foster family got sick of me pushing my glasses up my nose constantly, so we were reunited with our real parents.

After reading the sketch and fully absorbing the woody-tinny dynamic, tell us where you'd put the following words:

  • Category
  • Yogurt
  • Desk
  • Speakers
  • Radical

# Category -- tinny
# Yogurt -- tinny
# Desk -- woody
# Speakers -- tinny
# Radical -- woody

I changed my mind several times over "yogurt"

"Tit. Tit. Oh, that's very tinny isn't it?"

To think of tit as either tinny or woody defeats the whole purpose of the word tit. Tits are to be admired, cherished, fondled, and licked. (Note my use of the serial comma.) The word is not to be considered for its auditory effects. Pussy, on the other hand, does in fact give me a woody.

Oh, brother ...

But...How much woody would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck woody? Could the answer be tin? I want it to be.

And...Derek and Craig are brothers? Weird!

BTW...I've been preparing all week for today's one-on-one with one of the twins here at work. First time ever--just the two of us, "breaking bread." After oversleeping this morning, I unfortunately got dressed in a rush, picking up an old forgotten skirt from the bottom of my closet, squeezing into it, and dashing out the front door. To my dismay, once I got to work, however, I realized said skirt was not only horribly stained with an unknown substance but its slit had ripped all the way up to just below my unexercised ass. Let's just say: lower cheek exposure galore. I've been sitting here at my desk all day, wondering: What will this 19-year-old fashion icon think of me as we talk shop and "break bread" face-to-face for the first time? I've had to hold a file folder furtively over my rear-end every time I have no choice but to walk down the hallway to relieve myself in the ladies' room. Of cours, this may not be a possiblity if we go off-site to "break bread." Must. Remain. Calm. AnywayZ: Good thing I am not Derek, wearing a skirt with a slit in the front, right? I think, in that case, we might have a very, very scary "woody" situation on our hands. And then I would get fired.

add "e" to "course"

I have a grammar/style question: When do you use "i.e." versus "e.g." versus "viz"? I'm betting that only Craig knows the answer to this question, and that Derek will pretend to know, but won't really know.
