(12:16:42) kesuari: literal definition often means "in accordance with, involving, or being the primary or strict meaning of the word or words; not figurative or metaphorical"

(12:17:01) [me]: fair enough

(12:17:07) [me]: people certainly use it that way

(12:17:49) kesuari: that's the first definition on dictionary.com ;)

(12:18:25) [me]: yeah, I guessed you'd pulled it from a dictionary

(12:18:44) kesuari: well, i was pointing out it's the *first* definition

(12:18:52) kesuari: i.e. the primary one

(12:20:08) [me]: dictionaries don't always know which to put first

(12:20:37) kesuari: in the case of "literal" i think they got it right

(12:20:49) kesuari: people don't use it to mean its literal definition i.e. "of letters" very often

(12:21:03) kesuari: (oh noes! i've used "literal" with a different definition!)

(12:22:46) [me]: you're just trying to be meta and ironic to get on my quotes page

(12:23:01) [me]: *to get more on my quotes page

(12:23:06) [me]: you dominate it anyway these days

(12:23:27) kesuari: lol no, i was just trying to be ironic because irony is funny

(12:23:40) kesuari: if that gets me on your quotes page, well then, i can use that in my plot to take over the world

(12:23:49) kesuari: and if it doesn't, well, it's not a vital step anyway

...

(12:25:40) kesuari: actually, that could be more a difference of the implications of "primary" anyway. so maybe i was using "literal" with its literal meaning, but "literal" and "primary" are both thankfully ambiguous in the same way?

(12:25:43) kesuari: i am confused.

Thatcher: "The funniest quote of the night was:

Thatcher: ‘Do you want a valium?’

Jonathan: ‘What's that?’

"

Jonathan: "I have enough quotes of myself under stupidity. Though all my friends seem to think that when I say something that should be under stupidity, I put it under wisdom or profoundness instead."

(02:24:46) [me]: don't really pay attention to how they say it unless I'm in linguist mode

(01:11:29) [Aladnsane]: No. I'm really getting into this insobriety thing tonight.

(01:11:34) [Aladnsane]: Which is close.

(01:11:43) [Aladnsane]: Because insobriety tends to lead to quotes

(01:12:03) [Aladnsane]: That, and I've been reading your quotes page and, to be honest, missing that brief period when I dominated it ;)

22:03:31 [me]: :-P

22:03:43 [me]: (I started to type :-P as 'th')

22:03:54 [me]: (which was weird. but that's how I'd pronounce it)

22:03:59 [Laura]: WHAT?

22:04:05 [Laura]: th=smiley face?

22:04:09 [me]: no.

22:04:11 [me]: pronounce :-P

22:04:21 [Laura]: "smiley face"

22:04:22 [Laura]: OH

22:04:25 [Laura]: pffft

22:04:28 [me]: no

22:04:31 [Laura]: no?

22:04:32 [me]: stick your tongue out

22:04:38 [me]: no ffs if your tongue's out

22:04:39 [Laura]: pbpbpbpbpbp

22:04:51 [me]: no ps or bs either

22:04:59 [Laura]: Absolutely it's a BP

22:05:17 [Laura]: The sounds of someone blowing a raspberry sounds like a p or b to me.

22:05:25 [me]: technically it's lingua-labial

22:05:36 [me]: yeah, but in this case your tongue is involved

22:05:40 [Laura]: a TH sounds is made by blowing air over over your tongue.

22:05:52 [Laura]: Maybe mrmrmrmrmrmrmrmr

22:05:59 [me]: no, an /h/ is made by blowing air over your tongue

22:06:08 [Laura]: But i like pbpbpbpbpbpbpbp

22:06:15 [me]: but you can do that without your tongue

22:06:20 [Laura]: Yes.

22:06:26 [Laura]: True.

22:06:38 [Laura]: But it's the same sound!

22:06:42 [me]: thbt might be better

22:06:48 [Laura]: Ok, ok.

22:06:55 [Laura]: It's understandable.

22:07:07 [me]: so that's why I started writing it as 'th'

22:07:10 [me]: instead of :-P

22:07:12 [Laura]: heh.

22:07:25 [me]: that conversation is almost worthy of my quotes page

22:07:38 [Laura]: pretty much.

(05:31:53) Laura C: people say really weird shit in your presence.

(05:33:57) [me]: such as?

(05:34:08) [me]: (and yeah, tell me about it...)

(05:34:45) Laura C: that made no sense.

(05:36:49) [me]: ?

(05:41:01) Laura C: 1. "such as?" implies that you need an example of how people say really weird shit in your presence.

2. "and yeah, tell me about it" suggests that realize that people say really weird shit in your presence.

3. your professor said "The raw act of boy fellating man would not go down well in mainstream America. No pun intended." hsfdkljsdhfksdfjhksdjfhsdkjfh!

(08:34:57) Laura C: I accidently lit my pencil on fire

(08:35:03) Laura C: And now it won't work.

(08:36:52) [me]: what kind of pencil

(08:37:05) Laura C: mechanical.

(08:37:20) Laura C: I wanted to see what happened if you lit the lead on fire.

(08:37:29) Laura C: except i caught the plastic on fire

(08:37:39) Laura C: and the top part kinda melted off.

(08:38:46) Laura C: And the peice of lead is completley covered in melted plastic.

(08:39:13) Laura C: BUT I CAN STILL WRITE WITH IT!

(08:39:33) [me]: I thought you said it didn't work?

(08:39:51) Laura C: Well, the tip of the piece of lead pokes through the plastic

(08:39:57) Laura C: So i can technically still write with it

(08:40:28) Laura C: But it's not like i can reverse the damage i did. When that peice of lead is through, it'll be completley broken.

(08:47:54) Laura C: this is the coolest pencil EVER

(08:48:56) Laura C: It's now more like an abstract art idea of a pencil
