I still wish Scotland had left before Andy Murray won Wimbledon.

Mr Corn - I think part of the reason for the nicknames was that so many of them had numbers. I've known two Fourths and a Fifth.

Another highly characteristic trait was their tendency, when at uni, to go in for wearing very loose, rather loud shorts - usually commando.

Ms Lava - Mourning a Tory?

Ms Fan - (Do I recall correctly that you wanted Scotland to stay because you needed the leftish MPs?) I hope you found the vote outcome to your liking.

Ms Fan - So that's what leaking out of the corner of your mouth...

I'm suspecting our old friend the Edit Bug has put in an appearance here. Assuming consensus on its being a Truth Universally Acknowledged that anyone who wants a Proposal Via Flashmob ought to die after a lifetime of never being engaged, I have serious doubts that LW ought to get what she wants. We also don't know what feedback Mr Savage received after the previous suggestion.

Ms Fan - You forget (or perhaps never knew) that My People are the Gentile Country Club Set. The number of weird nicknames I know that I know are considered professionally acceptable would raise tremendous jealousy among mere kinksters.

Ms Crinoline - You remind me of the rather 1%-y claim that the Roman Catholic Church was the one bastion of protection of gay men all through the dark ages (the priesthood).

Has anyone else here read Blue Heaven?

I suggest (to avoid the P-word) that she has proposed but wants him to Propose. (I wonder if Mr Maguire should get royalties - recall the difference in the Wicked series between animals and Animals.)

Seconding Mr Ophian, at least enough to wonder why Mr Savage varied this time. Was there some detail in this letter missing from the earlier one that tipped Mr S into the He Should Propose column?

And I still wonder about the prior response. Was, "I hope he says yes," just the sort of previous-Prudie-worthy banality one utters just out of politeness? Or was Mr Savage just grading that LW on a curve?

Mx Wanna - Well, at least that event does welcome women. I wonder what the saturation point would be.

Ms Fan @34 - May we add that the name in question is not considered inappropriate for professional use?

I'm going to stop now before I waste too much time trying to figure out why certain nicknames are considered professionally acceptable.
