I heard like a little pause in the OBB version.

ETA: How is it the Vietnamese restaurants around here when I was growing up (80s) never had pho? Now it's quite a common dish. Weird.
OBB's version sounded like "fuh-uh" to me, like he had a little stutter.

I've never heard anyone say bang me.

I'm not arguing with you, but I've always heard it like she pronounces from other Vietnamese people.
And I've had Vietnamese people say that northern and southern pronunciation sound somewhat different. Like how southerners here pronounce "aunt"versus northeners, or how caramel gets pronounced.

That's awesome.

So I just heard some woman saying "I like pho" pronouncing it like "faux" and I cringed.
I know pronouncing it wrong is standard, but once you know it's wrong it's like nails on a chalkboard hearing it.

Also, I find it kind of funny how much more straightforward Chinese terms are to pronounce, since I've always heard that Chinese is the most difficult. I mean, I believe it, but just in terms of pronouncing, it seems a lot less tricky to me.
Heh, pointing is always good.
Who would like to go to the grocery store with me?

Anybody?
Anybody?

Anybody??

Yeah, me either. Not feeling it today.

i just got back from the grocery store, springy (oh, okay, it was an hour ago), otherwise i'd happily go with you!

i got all kinds of fun and fresh things - this city is in the major farming district in this province: sweet peppers in 5 colours, a whole pineapple (obviously NOT local - it was on sale), local strawberries (one of the growers on the east side of town does ever-bearing), blackberries, onions, garlic, romaine, field tomatoes, cucumbers and radicchio!



and the fun stuff: goldfish crackers (i really like them ), vanilla yogurt, ready-made souvlaki, a dozen whole wheat bagels, Frutopia (the frozen kind - to make sangria), a tiny 2-serving red velvet cake, perogies, full-fat sour cream and "paillot de chevre" goat cheese!

i am nibbling on some goldfish along with a glass of Hops & Robbers India Pale Ale from Double Trouble Brewing Co. in Guelph. it's marketed as a "strong beer" at 5.7% alcohol, but i think it's too heavy on the hops for my taste.

anyone want to drop by for dinner?

For the first time, Buddy hasn't run to the door meowing his head off because he hears me coming. Tonight, he sat on the couch and meowed normally at me to come greet him. I look at that as an improvement.
