For various reasons...

....it gives me great pleasure to be the Fixer of the Broken Machine (TM) while swiftfoxe takes care of being Cooker of the Fabulous Meal (TM). This may well have to do with gender stereotypes and the fact that some of my fondest memories of time spent with my father involve us fixing things around the house. So hee.

In addition, a truly lovely quote from one of the students in my LING240 class:

"So the moral of this story is never to be a naked maid for a deaf man."

(This is due to a discussion of the McGurk effect, which led to a discussion of visual influences on such things as badly dubbed movies and then to discussion of lip reading in general, which led to what the phrase "I want to vacuum" looks like when mouthed.)

when I took ling240, I volunteered to be one of the EEG dummies for three experiments, and the McGurk effect was one of the ones I did. LOTS of fun.

What's the broken machine, and what's the fabulous meal?

And the fabulous meal was something involving chicken and spices and rice in thoroughly pleasing quantities. ;)
