HAH! I read this before you did, and told myself, "Self, Kevin is going to use this as a Quote of the Day."

I don't know which feels better, me agreeing with you or you agreeing with me.

For just a girl, that Tamara has an amazing clarity and knack for verbiage, whether her own or gleaned from history and literature.

I am glad to see her given credit; others have used her writings and accepted credit for them (or worse, given attribute to the origin and skipped Tam's contemporary reference).

The lady is a (genuine) renaissance gurl. Al Terego

I'm not sure, but it's probably a good thing you didn't leave an email address. I think Tam might kick your a@@ for calling her a "gurl."

>>For just a girl,

I'm not so sure I'd be using diminutive phrases like that around someone as...formidable...as Tamara.

Not unless I wanted my spleen yanked out through the least convenient orifice and subjected to ridicule.

You boys need to look closer at Tamara's blog; she has a whole subsection called "just a girl", and obviously my ending is parody; I'm sure she gets it. Don't let the seriousness of most of the diatribes here rob you of your humor and appreciation for irony because you're gonna need it the next five years!

As for respect for Tam, I think "renaissance" says it all; there are knowledable people in every field, few are as knowledgable, well read, well-versed, and wide-ranging as Tamara K.


Your new post is amazing, Kevin. sUber dUber actually. I'm taking a rest halfway through; going back to it now..I wish it could be distributed outside the choir circle, though.

It was the super-cutesy "gurl" part that I was commenting on.

And I was being snarky myself. Hard to tell without the use of smileys, isn't it? ;)

Thanks. Hope the second half meets your expectations!

Smileys? Now that's cutesy...toyz for boyz. No, good humor and parody have to stand on their own...and those that don't get it? Well...
