Oh show, how I miss you...  
Ah the joys of being that little bit behind on a show on finale day...

Yeah, flist? Love you all, not going to be reading you until I catch up on show. (Have seen up ep 21 now, so only one ep to go!)

I have nothing really constructive or informative to say right now - still trying to work out what happened to all the extra coding on my layout and still trying to remember the really important thing I was coming to the library to look up...

Oh! Yeah, so etymologists amongst you, 'humble' - what's the roots? (Blame Neil Gaiman for that interest) - I did manage to find an entry in a universal dictionary concerning deer offal (and specifically the thigh muscle of the deer) but does it also have a similar meaning with regards humans?

And yes, I am just slightly morbid and wondering if eating 'humble pie' was ever used as a really grotesque punishment.

What? You're suprised I have these thoughts? Hello, my name's Sho. Have we met?


(There's no particular reason for the icon btw - it just makes me grin and I don't think I've ever used it here)

Awesome - the 'umble' origin relates to what I found - I hadn't found the 'numble' link though.


It doesn't however look as though it's been used for human entrails.

Hmmm. *plots to use it*
