So, I've been basically a shut-in all vacation, except for numerous doctor's appointments. So not much interesting to talk about there, except that I've been playing a lot of WoW.

Cut for Latin grammar nerdery )

So, this entry is just for notes to myself, so that I have someplace to keep track of what I've done on my DCG final without having to a) have the right notebook with me or b) log into something distracting. (Although I'll still need to log in when I want to change it, but this is good enough.)

Cut for long lists that probably no one else cares about )

So, I've been toying with the idea for a while of an alien race naming its ships with verb phrases instead of nouns. (And there could be a plot thread where over-poetic translators render them as nouns anyway, so Our Heroes don't realize at first that The Samaritan is the same ship as To Help A Stranger In Need.  But I digress...) I figured I'd list them here so they get on paper pixels.  Some are sillier than others:
  • To Be Distracted By A Shiny Thing (probably an asteroid prospector; the equivalent of The Magpie)
  • To Appear To Fly Via Stage Magic
  • To Eat Dessert Slowly
  • To Build Bridges (either a diplomatic vessel or the Corps of Engineers)
  • To Temper a Sword
  • To Invent Steam Power (this one might be too human-specific)
  • To Help A Stranger In Need (like I mentioned above)
  • To Breathe Underwater
  • To Tend One's Garden/To Tend Someone Else's Garden (probably two entirely separate concepts)
  • To Defend An Unpopular Opinion
  • To Entertain Children
  • To Dig In Places One Shouldn't (a science/exploration vessel)
  • To Take Up Improvised Weapons
  • To Build Houses Out Of Impractical Materials
  • To Clean The Bones Of Carrion
  • To Juggle Unwieldy Objects
  • To Begin An Important Project (the closest I could get to Enterprise that wasn't just "to do something")
