Jareth "Bah"

(no subject)

Sven's applying for a job in loan collections.
I'm presently waking up with another physics lecture. I'm appreciating these things- I'm finally starting to be able to keep up with Sven discussing theoretical physics.
I think I set the expectations of the Spanish interpreters at work to high. Normally, my Spanish is good enough to do basic skip tracing and/or confirm the identity of the person before getting someone fluent over to take the call. Yesterday, the Spanish reps got annoyed at me for passing an unconfirmed person over instead of taking the call myself. Ahh, well. She was using words I didn't know.

I've been reading a good deal of history lately.
One bit I read involved a gentleman feeling he had been cheated a gambling parlor owned by the Irish mob. He promptly went up to the propreitor, and challenged him to a duel. The propreitor had no objections- merely wanted to confirm that as the challenged, the choice of weapons were his.
He arrived at the duel with two butcher's cleavers.
The gentlman promptly retracted his accusation of fixed tables.
