Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!
Got my new computer yesterday evening, and finally got round to plugging it in today. I'm in heaven. I keep laughing when I step into the room and see the 24" monitor. It's insane!
Congrats, I know the feeling!
Listened to some Christmas-y music in the car today - I have to stop myself from doing that this early or I'm going to get burned out over it before December again
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
