drive-by update  

I started exercising about ten days ago. Ted has lost three pounds. *squinchy face* He said to me, “Keep up whatever you’re doing!” :) *laughs* *Men*. :)

Uh. Research questions: what’s the Italian for sorrow? Is “prime” the Latin plural of “primus”, and is it too mortally offensive to essentially Anglicize that and turn it into “primes” for a multitude of firsts, because I suspect most readers are probably unlikely to actually go from “Primus” as a singular to “Prime” as a plural? Uhm. I probably have other questions too, but those two are the ones that’ve leapt to mind just now. eta: Also: what would be the French for "the river Seine speech", or "the speech given on the river Seine"?

I have been meaning for *weeks* to mention, with delight, that the P-Con Match It For Pratchett donation box brought in $220. I wanted to say thank you to everybody who dropped a couple euro into the pot. You guys are awesome.

Back on my head.

Glad to help!

...oh, and now that I think of it, it doesn't even sound as bad as it looks. The "gl" is pronounced much like a Spanish "ll", not like English "gl". Much smoother all around. Just in case you were worrying :-)

Ooh! I hadn't been worried, but that's good to know. It does make it a much prettier word, doesn't it?

While I'm on the topic of Italian translations, what would be the translation for "priest" or "father" in terms of a priest? :)

Padre. That's easy :-)
