"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    I really need this at this time. Completely exhausted after coming back from the study workshops of Statistics! :(

    @Bubbly, well, you should learn at last that there are much worse things in the world than statistics. E.g. Polish tongue twisters. ;)

    @Bubbly, I am sure when you learn how pronounce it you will be full of energy again. ;)

    @Xanthippe Life seems so easy as compared to statistics study workshops. ;) I hate when a teacher doesn't understand that they shouldn't speak statistical language whilst explaining standard deviation and anova.

    @Bubbly, poor you. :) That's life. But I am suffering too. ;) I haven't catch the kangaroo with a bag but the kangaroo has caught me with a bag.

    @Xanthippe nice idea. We will play the kangaroo's game during tomorrow's workshop. ;)

    @Xanthippe what is the relationship between a kangaroo and statistics? I am still thinking...LOL

    @Xanthippe I wish my mind runs like a kangaroo when it comes to understand the t and z tests. :(
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, the kangaroo's mind is like a razor: you would be the best. ;)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,834 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe I was thinking to replace my mind with kangaroo's but there was no such experiment done by the surgeons so far. :)

    @Bubbly, we are reaching the peak of silliness. Fortunately, I have a different nickname here. :D
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,834 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe sometimes this 'non-sense' makes a lot of sense. ;) I always enjoy talking to you about silliness as you make some sense out of it. :)
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, as you like Shakespeare ;) :

    O [the kangaroo's] hard condition,
    Twin-born with greatness, subject to the breath
    Of every fool, whose sense no more can feel
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,834 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe I thought that it was only you and me. But, Shakespeare was also like us who talked about silliness in his plays. Welcome to the silliness gang! ;)
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, we are in good company. :) This is a comfort. :)

    @Xanthippe I am still thinking about the silly pranks that mostly dramatists used in their plays.
