The e makes the "ee" sound. The I makes the "ist" sound. Seems legit to me. Drinking Beverage

The technical term for adjacent vowels that are pronounced as separate symbols is hiatus. I had to look that up.

Why do they call it a cervical collar? Seems a ways off from where cervical cancer is.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

Cervical is for neck, it's just information determined after necks were figured out that your little bit of anatomy is neck-shaped. Naming conventions are pretty

prosaic

Another girl at work seems to be noticing me, but unfortunately we rarely get the chance to talk. We work in different areas of the building.

That's the best part of any relationship.

I think I sometimes order small stuff from Amazon so that I have mail that isn't junk mail, a bill, or a depressing newspaper (really, the Chronicle of Higher Education and Freethought Today often remind me of how depressing higher ed can be, and government can be).

Have fun and good luck! Smile And some unsolicited advice that I give my students? Used books online or rentals online are your friends; they will save you a ton of money....well, unless you're like my student who got caught in a downpour with her rented books and owed Amazon the full price. A good bookbag or messenger bag is also possibly your friend for rainy days.

Need to think of a witty signature.
