that's a pretty extreme method to get out of learning hungarian!

i just love the weirdness of the language, and think that it actually sounds cool to listen to. oh, and i love hungarian folk music

*sigh* I just got sidetracked from my very short list of large, high-priority items to recover some stupid kid's floppy disk.

"Well, I see you were working on it from 3 AM to 5 AM - did you save it at any time during this period?"
"No."
"Did you print it, or e-mail it to yourself, or back it up in any other way?"
"No."

I can see something almost like a fingerprint on the cookie. Argh! The *one* file he needs is so corrupt that it crashes Word when I try to access the recovered fragment I found. Now I'm running ScanDisk.

BTW, let me take this moment to thank you, ct, for your point awhile back about R-Tools/R-Studio [Smile] . That's one good piece of software!

That sounds a lot like my parents....
It sounds a lot like mine too. I heard a zillion time "I didn't have you to just sit around. As a kid you are here for slave labor. Now get to work." Of course it was said in good fun and usually it got me to finish whatever chore was at hand. The scary part was recently hearing myself say that to my kids.....

Egads! I'm turning into my parents. HELP! [Big Grin]

Greygirl, you are wise beyond your years. I, however, have always suffered from terminal immaturity, hence my distress at what seems to be an upcoming "second midlife crisis"!!! This I will endeavor to avoid at all costs!

My kids DO help, and my wife does her part. I will not complain about my wife, it's just rude and disrespectful. I will say, that the "family dreams and goals" are about 5% mine. My personal goals and dreams, unfortunately, I have abandoned. Maybe I am trying too hard to make everyone happy, or overcompensating for many hard financial years now that we are OK.

I DO like the idea of making them watch "The Shining" !!!!! ROFL!!! All the time they are watching, I will be staring intently into their eyes!!!

Greygirl, how have you become so wise and calming! Your reponses are soothing and logical. I just have to "make it so" so to speak.

Arlo, I'm probably older than you think. I won't give my actual age, but put it this way... I'm old enough to have a son in HS (and before anyone asks, he doesn't post here. This is Mommy's playground). However, I've always been terminally mature. Got to fix that, somehow.
