That was a reply to Stilly.

As for you, Amos, my friend, you are a sad victim of the advanced symptoms of terminal California drivel-speak, the objective of which is to bury the listener under a veritable barrage of pretentious words like "heuristic", "jejeune", "frisson", and so on...not in order to actually say anything, mind you, but merely to sound as if one is saying something...something truly weighty and meaningful and significant...something that reminds the listener that he is in the presence of greater knowledge and urbanity than his own and that he would do best to merely sit with his jaw slightly open reveling in the joy of hearing the final truth on the matter, whatever the matter is or purports to be.

Utter and complete blathertwaddle in other words. ;-) It's one of the things I love in you, because you are so good at it. If I come out to California, I expect you to coach me in that technique so that I can go to the L.A. and San Francisco and San Diego Starbucks ooffee shops and wow the other patrons into awed silence.
