My wild, retro side

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 1:34 PM

I woke on the wild side this morning, and instead of wearing snickers to work, I wore sandals. With socks. Am I wild or am I wild? No disparaging comments heard so far, but I’m prepared with a suitable response anyway: “hey, if it’s good enough for Linus , it’s good enough for me!”

On the retro side, I’m listening to nyh’s mp3s now. So many songs that bring back memories, of dark hallways and smoke filled clubs, of quiet, sun-lit afternoons and starless nights, of adventures long gone. Here’s to nyh and a trip down memory lane!


  1. A live mulix spelling mistake!
    I’ve checked this matter once[1] and twice[2] even got a second opinion[3] for this severe matter, but alas, this is true.
    The mulix has a spelling mistake, live online, spelling mistake of an *English* vety common word. Spelling mistake in the very paragraph, which the devious word “disparaging” has sneaked[4] into, sneaked and left me wondering.
    We usually wear snEAcers to work, and release a small snicker when hearing of a famous man’s spelling mistake[5].
    [4] pun intended, indeed it was.
    [5] Please pardon my excitement, I simply adores your English, you write some really tough expressions (for me). No offence please, I’m just kidding.

      No offense taken. I will live the typo there for all posterity, so your amusing comment will remain in context. Cheers!
      /me adds ‘automatically spell check entry on lj-send-to-server’ to TODO list 😉

        [1] This kind of typo cannot be traced by a spelling checker just as “I seel all boxes I sea” will be just aspell-approved.
        [2] I actually thought it’s a pun (I can live with it+ I’ll leave it)
        This kind of small undetectable mistakes we wived into a monstrous thrids, will force you, eventually, to have a glass of gean, just to chear yourself up.
        Mmm… maybe I should’ve gone for a Lashon B.A. instead of mathematics…

        [1] A spell checker would catch some of my other, embarassing typos.
        [2] It was a typo, I shouldn’t lj before my first cup of coffee / orange juice in the morning.
        Don’t you know Lashon and Math are isomorphic?

        Lashon and math are isomorphic?
        Except of Chomsky’s[0] “Natural language is not Contextless Grammar” I know no other resemblances…
        [0] נועם חומסקי I have no idea how is it spelled with Eglish and no desire to check that with Google[1]
        [1] Checked with google eventually, I was miraculously correct. Miraculously as last name-language were known to be non-contextless even before Chomskies work…
