Hrm, if I had not thought that the girl in your avatar was that lovely asian you had earlier, I would have missed this entirely. Any particular reason you single me out, Chloroboy?

I wonder who she has inherited the pouting gene from, and more importantly, whether she has inherited her mother’s obvious poor taste in men.

ah yes. that does seem a while ago, although not that long. time moves fast in Classics, hence my questionable orthography c/o Summer '-04.

as a completely independent point, E., i recently learnt of the amusing misconception of the word anulus by the great Lewis and Short. in the following passage from Cato they decided to ditch the translation 'ring' - a sense attested by the word every other time in the Latin language - and in the end go for, ahem, fundamentum. it amused me, much like Housman's pointing out the omission of the word for cat in the TLL.

Cato de agr. 159: intertigini remedium. in uiam cum ibis, apsinthi Pontici surculum sub anulo habeto.

David, if your Latin was questionable in '04, what do you call Vis ioculer quam haha, irascerere me effecisse valde spero.

Well the first letter I received from you was very high in latinity considering that you have had little actual Roman influence in your blood that's to say you are a Cumbrian farmboy. I however as benissimus suggested must have been in a past life a lowly Roman boy named Publius who naturally could not read literature yet but was hit on the head with a ball when he was 2.

I miss those little exchanges it is the classicist equivalent of a schoolyard scrap. The Agora is quiet nowadays and I have not been required for months to write any latin, which is shameful. I should be very grateful if cweb joined in also. Yes see web two five five. Come on cweb hit me in the real life Agora complex, just remember the personal endings are [s] 1. -o/-m 2. -s 3. -t [p] 1. -mus 2. -tis 3. -nt
