I'm serving Fiesta and put the wrong date into the post! OMG! Can't Post

Could someone please change the November 16th date to November 9th where I'm announcing the Homecoming Fiesta next week?

THANKS LOTS! Gotta get back to the party! The natives are THIRSTY!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

That's at least the second time [In reply to] Can't Post

I've done that, mixed up you and weaver! Laugh

What's funny is how often I do it in RL, mix up two people who I know very well, and for a moment call each by the other's name. I wonder if there's a word for doing that sort of thing?

names and words for things [In reply to] Can't Post

to me are kind of shapes. Amy and Ann get input in my brain in the same general place so when I want to pull one out, I often grab the wrong one. I know a Dan who married a Don and I never call either of them by the correct name.

Magpie and weaver both have the same number of letters. Perhaps that's it.

I do something similar with names. [In reply to] Can't Post

Not so much the shape, but I group them instinctively by their feel: Ann, Jane, Mary would be grouped together; Rachel, Michelle, Tracey in another; Victoria, Margaret, Elizabeth etc. It's not uncommon for me to give someone the wrong name from within a 'group'. It's quite frustrating.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I have no idea why, but "magpie" and "weaver" have a similar "feel" to me.

Strange, how minds work! Laugh

Birds? [In reply to] Can't Post

Does "weaver" make you think of weaver birds?

That may be it! [In reply to] Can't Post

Or maybe it has to do with "weaving" a nest together...
