Still Alive  
After several weeks of high stress today all of a sudden everything went smoothly and calmly. I feel rather like someone who's been riding a skateboard downhill and has suddenly hit a patch of gravel. The free fall moment of "uh-oh" feeling is ... rather daunting.

(Yes, over socialized. I had that conversation earlier in the week.)

Since I can't entirely remember the lead up to it, I shall refrain from posting about how fresne and I found out an interesting old meaning to the word "corvette". It had little to do with ships, and I shall forever look at the car a bit differently now.

Well, now you have me curious; what IS that old, obscure meaning?

glad to hear your high stress is coming to an end.
as for corvette, they thought the name would make the cars seem rather bad ass. has it worked? :b

Your turn of phrasing is unintentionally ironic. (I expect it's unintentional?)

I think the marketing group were trying to call to mind the fast, lightly armed warships from the days of yore.

the marketing seems to have worked, considering your new found appreciation.
i resent the fact that everyone now thinks "car" when they hear corvette. they were little frigates for centuries before some car company came along! what do you expect from a car company with a name mutated from chevalier? *pfft*

Like roseembolism, I'm curious too!
