Writer's Block: Ticket, Please

What is your favorite vacation spot in the world and why do you love it so much -- is it the activities, the people, the sheer beauty, etc? Would you live there full time if you could, or do you prefer to keep it as a special treat?

Is maith liom Éire na áit ar bith eile. If I had a choice, I'd vacation and live in Ireland. It's a rugged land with a rugged people and a rugged history, and a terrible beauty. All I need now is riches beyond the dreams of avarice.

Either your Irish is rusty or Google Translate goofed a bit: "Ireland I like these anywhere else."

Surely you don't put any faith in Google translate at all...

Yet you *dare* to assume that it is correct and a trained linguist is not. Humph. Well. Humph.g :P

I didn't assume. I gave an either-or statement.

An either-or statement implies that both options lie within the realm of possibility.


Robert Langdon: Leigh, my friend. Care to open up for an old colleague?
Sir Leigh Teabing: Of course.
[Robert goes to shut the car door]
Sir Leigh Teabing: But first, a test of honor. Three questions.
Robert Langdon: [somewhat annoyed] Fire away!
Sir Leigh Teabing: Your first: shall I serve coffee or tea?
Robert Langdon: Tea, of course.
Sir Leigh Teabing: Excellent! Second: milk or lemon?
Robert Langdon: That would depend on the tea.
Sir Leigh Teabing: Correct! And now the third and most grave of inquiries. In which year did a Harvard sculler outrow an Oxford man at Henley?
Robert Langdon: [reluctantly] Surely such a travesty has never occurred.
Sir Leigh Teabing: Your heart is true. You may pass.

Just because it's in your skill set doesn't mean you never mess up. Sometimes the Firefox spellchecker knows better than me, for example.

Oh, right, fine, destroy all my fantasies while you're at it. Next thing you know, you'll be telling me I'm not king of the world.
