Is fearr sneachta ná siorbháisteach

5 July 2006

Táim, like officially, ró-te. Ró-fricking-te.

Also, I forgot to mention that Issue #4 of Estella’s Revenge is up. And focusing on Freedom. I’m supposin’ on account of that holiday all you American types had yesterday.

Did I mention I’m too hot?[1]


  1. – yeah, that is what the Irish bits mean.

    That may be the universes first ever utterance of "Ró-fricking-te". God bless the internet, and it is indeed far too hot.

    I don't know what to say. Ask a lovely and muscular Paul O'Connell lookalike type person to fan you and bring you ice-cool piña coladas or whatever tropical-sounding drink that strikes your fancy?

    That was indeed the inspiration, Fence. Wonderful additions from the writers outside the US I thought. Added a lot of dimension to the issue.

    It's too hot here in Edmonton, too. My folks in Southern Ontario are scorching too, or were when last I spoke with them.

    Alas! The world's not going to die amidst ice nor fire, but in a big muggy haze.

    It may be the first Geekmania, but is it correct, or does the te get a séimhiú (and is that the correct spelling?)?

    Anne, that sounds…. pleasant :)

    Andi I've just been flicking through it, and it looks really great.

    Sean, it isn't really that hot here. Low 20s I'd say. but it is close and humid and icky. Plus I'd been out walking at lunck. Between the hours of 12 and 1.

    When I first read that, for some reason, I read it téim and was most confused. Thanks for the translation – I see my mistake. I'm not familiar with táim, perferring the more Ulster (I guess) tá mé. :)

    I went to the library last week and got a bunch of early-reader Irish books and I get so excited when I can actually read something.

  7. Fence says:

    Yeah, tá mé would be the more accepted version. But I picked up táim when I went to the gaeltacht and would use it when speaking. And as my blog isn't that formal I figure táim works.

  8. Sean says:

    Low twenties. I would kill for some low twenties, though we had rain today, so it cooled off. We usually don't get so much hot weather up here, and it is a dry heat.

  9. Fence says:

    Well I'm a lot happier today Sean, the forecasters still say low 20's, but there is a breeze and the muggy humidity seems to have been blown away. Which is nice.
