Culture, social justice, queer issues, disability rights, arts, Boston, and stuff I think is cool.
"Conferble"? Usually I have some idea what she means.
Just a suggestion here, Eeka, but since you are devoted to human rights and non-discrimination, maybe you could cut Delores some slack instead of continually making fun of her for speaking a regional dialect of American English that's not the same as yours. Try taking a look at two recent posts in the excellent linguistics blog, Language Log: http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=2489 and http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=2493.
Larry, I've replied to you before on this matter. All I've done here is transcribe words she's said, and I'm guessing you've noticed that she doesn't consistently speak any one dialect of English (sometimes saying a word different ways in one sentence), which is what's intriguing.
Also, I'm not sure one one-word post every two to three weeks qualifies as "continually".
