October 2019 15k SPAM Thread

I'm not sure that the accent is neurological when singing. I think it's bio-mechanical.

Regular speaking accents are in the brain though.

Which makes it really fun when you make yourself sing 'bad' and with accents.  This drives my grandmother crazy because she could not carry a tune in a bucket whereas my mother/ dad/ the rest of my siblings can all sing fairly well and we love to sing 'bad' to joke with each other.  She does not like squeaky alien Hallelujah chorus.  I do not know why.

As for my mom saying she doesn't have an accent...she knows she has a thick LI accent.  That was her just making fun of me and trying to be prim and proper.  She just wanted to rant to someone for an hour (and my dad wanted to talk about mail), so my ten-minute call turned into a hour and a half.  😗

I feel this thread can understand more about my upbringing if they see my family chat. Highlight from last night:

Oooooo!  That sounds amazing, tj!  I want to do a safari one day, maybe a riding one?  I heard really good reviews for some of the preserves but I'm not sure I'm fit-enough to get back into horseback riding and do that type of trek.  How are you going to travel through South Africa?  Tour groups?  Random car hiring?

nice!

I did the great white cage diving out of Gansbaai. Eat the breakfast they give you, and take motion sickness pills. It can get rough on those tiny boats.

Whale watching is easy. There's literally a guy in Hemanus who job it is to make a noise when a whale is spotted in the bay - which is often.

DIY travel planning (6 of us). We're going to rent a car when we drive along the coast to the sharks and whales and the preserve. we did lots of research before we chose. a mixture of tours and diy sightseeing in cape town as well. we have a whole google spreadsheet matrix we use for planning lol

we're gonna do a combo thing of sharks in the am, shower the grime off, then whales in the pm for time efficiency. with the same company and they will feed us and keep us safe i hope! LOL

It's funny that you think my wife and I have that much culinary skill. We don't even have the turkey, yet. That's one of today's tasks.

:dunno: 🦃

Wow, international travel. I might be able to afford that eventually.

I might also discover Bigfoot...

You’re a bit late. Every Washingtonian ever has already discovered it.

Yeah, that's pretty normal.

Tours are weather dependent, if the seas are too rough, you may have to come back another day to do the swim. You may want to build some of that flexibility into your schedule.

Safety shouldn't be an issue. Eleven months out of the year, the sharks do not care about humans. We are just physical non-food objects in the background to be avoided while they try to eat the big-fish chunks that the boats use to draw them in. The sharks are just looking for an easy meal. The guides put the fishheads on a rope and pull it in front of the cages so the tourists can see the shark in action.

Unless you are visiting in July. That's their mating season. The males are hyped up on sex hormones and behave super aggressive and stupid. (sound familiar?). that's the only time the sharks start acting aggressive towards the humans in the cages.

 

Also, try to see the penguins while you are in the area. That species may be extinct in the wild in ~thirty years so you should try to see them while you can. You have a car, so it should be really easy to stop by one of their rookeries.

If you're into geographic extreme's see about driving to Cape Aghulas. It's the ACTUAL southernmost point of Africa and the place where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. Unlike the Cape of Good Hope, it's not very pretty.

Lamb?  Roast?  Pre-sliced spiral ham?
