I still have some proficiency, but nothing close to what I had 25 years ago.
Yeah, my Spanish is almost completely gone. Which is way less embarrassing here than it is back in the states. If you don't use them, languages decay so fast!

I don't think that's an option? I know for visas, unmarried straight couples can apply as civil partners in the same way gay and lesbian couples can but I don't think there's a discreet, paired legal status for heterosexual partners short of marriage.

I'm in at the solicitor's again on Monday, can ask if you're really interested.

I'm still not sure what they're going to do with the civil partnership status folks who already exist once gay marriage is legal and civil partnerships discontinued. I suppose offer the ability to upgrade (I can't see them making it mandatory) and just leaving folks who don't switch as a sort of one off anomaly in the system.

Forget it, you have undoubtedly already lost her. Talking with SL is like talking with Dory in Finding Nemo:

You are a biological female marrying a biological male?

Well, since the first part was wholly hypothetical, I would imagine you are honked off that I suggested that you would count the person who earned themselves the ability to earn a degree without also working to be a failure.
Good to know. Because mostly it appears as though you are prepared to count a good many people as being far less successful than you see yourself.
as always you are wrong.

I just gleefully pointed out that a single female aged 30 who is a student with no job, is telling us how we are failures in life because we disagree with her liberal socialistic views.

want to bet when she graduates and has to pay taxes her views change? pop out a few kids and buy a house, a couple cars.

her fantasy ends when reality takes over.

that is all I was saying.

That's not entirely fair. We've all said stupid things and then doubled down rather than taking it in stride.

Though, I might hope I would have factchecked before calling someone an idiot while doubling down...

I don't think that's quite it with SL.

Apparently she said, "without a shade of a doubt," instead of "without a reasonable doubt." A day and a half and forty assorted posts later (rather subtly pointing out the error), I think she has completely lost sight of whatever she originally said.

She frequently jumps in to respond without fully understanding any previous exchanges--even if they were her own. I just put it down to either lack of focus/concentration (and after all, how much focus is it fair to expect on a board like this?) or else short-term-memory loss.

I've got a house, as of yesterday. Well, a flat. Seems just as suitable.

I'm not really why kids or cars would be part of the equation. I'm sure you've had a great time raising five kids but it's really just not my style. We've talked about getting a little car to take out to the country but I'm just not willing to drive it through the city. Perfectly horrible driving.

You're not a failure because you disagree with me. You're a failure because of the choices you've made. You're seen as a failure here because of the transparency of your attempts to compensate for those failures. And none of these things have to stay constant. If you want to feel better about yourself, make better choices and be proud of them, rather than rant hollowly to an unimpressed void.

Show all of us the wording contained therein that chooses "sides" or show bias one way or the other.

Doesn't work that way. The burden is on the state to prove him guilty.

Now this is the same state that found Casey Anthony not guilty.

Back up the thread:

I said:
"Oh, OK.
"I thought you were weighing in to express an opinion on what Trayvon should have done."

Glitter said:
"You can go back to any post of mine on this subject. I have never taken a side. If you find one that slants in one direction or another, it will be construed out of context of the conversation."

So I posted a link to the post in which Glitter had offered her opinion that Trayvon should have just called the police.

Now, maybe you have some other way of viewing this, but, to make such a statement indicates a belief that Trayvon had an opportunity to call the police and that he chose to do something else instead.

And please keep your interest in my butt to yourself. I'm not interested.

Maryland is a Commonwealth, not a state. MD still adheres to the 1776 British ALexander law in many instances, one of them being 'beyond a shadow of a doubt' wording used in different courtrooms. I never used the word 'shade.'

This is just more of your juvenile mincing and twisting in order to appear correct.

Correct about what? A meaningless use of a word that does not change the substance of the sentence? Wow, what a win for you, If you, tran and Che knew what you were talking about.

You're all three on here 24 X 7. Do you have any life but for topix?

As for my 40 assorted posts, go back and check twister, as I stated last night, I have stayed out of this thread. So your count may be off by as much as 30.

Again, who cares? Only you and your useless bickering cohorts. All two of them.

You are the Queen of Irony, as well as wrong as can be about Maryland.
