(15:32:55) Aladnsane: Is it spelled with an H in yiddish? I always just guess with German orthography. Hell, it's written in Hebrew half the time *shrug*

(15:33:06) [me]: it's not written in hebrew

(15:33:09) [me]: just hebrew script

(15:33:13) Aladnsane: point

(15:33:33) Aladnsane: At least I didn't say it was written in Jewish :P I get asked if I speak Jewish way more often than is cool.

03:47:41 [me]: cause that sounds basically right

03:47:59 [Tristan]: my possibly faulty brain is getting a DNS resolution failure on that.
