This edit summary is a lie. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 12:32, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

It would be a lie, if I had written it with the intention of deceiving whoever reads it, but that wasn't my intention. Calling you a supernanny was perhaps unnecessary and gratuitous, but not a lie. It accurately describes my perception of (some of) your behaviour at the reference desks. ---Sluzzelin talk 13:16, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
And my better choice of words would have been "falsehood". Perhaps you've not been stalked by IP's as I have. If that's the case, consider yourself lucky. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 14:00, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I do consider myself lucky, and don't envy you for that kind of abuse at all. (Anyway, I like nannies) ---Sluzzelin talk 14:16, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
That nanny, we can agree on. :) :) :) ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 14:17, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Modern Times (Bob Dylan album), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Love and Theft. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Why did you delete my language question? --Askinghall (talk) 18:30, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

March 2014, September 2013, probably more, too lazy to search. I'll stop. Will you? ---Sluzzelin talk 18:51, 12 October 2014 (UTC)


Just to say it was a pleasure to discover your collection of paintings of readers. One of my eternal favorites is this one by Eastman Johnson. I used to visit her from time to time. I miss her now that I live too far away. Writegeist (talk) 19:21, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! I've been meaning to expand/refresh/rotate the gallery, just too lazy as usual, but I found Woman Reading on Commons and added her to the top row. I love perambulating readers! (That was me at a certain age walking home from school, and when I had to take our dog for a walk, I'd be reading all the way to the first bench on the top of the hill, sit down and read while letting her run around, and read all the way back home again! (hope my mother isn't reading). I guess nowadays it's people walking and staring at their phones when they're not stuck to their ears. ---Sluzzelin talk 20:08, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

What's AR?[edit]

A recent edit summary of yours: "actually, nm, I think I mis-got the joke, there will be plenty of more occasions to wind up m with AR". What's AR? Contact Basemetal here 17:16, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Ayn Rand. ---Sluzzelin talk 17:27, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Breeches not trousers I think[edit]

Greetings Sluzzelin. Thanks for your help at the RD. In the painting I would say Catherine the Great is wearing breeches not trousers. Contact Basemetal here 19:38, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Goodness, are you saying I picked The Wrong Trousers??? ---Sluzzelin talk 20:05, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Happy now? ---Sluzzelin talk 22:20, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

I wonder what's in the box?[edit]

Merry Christmas from Santa's little helpers! What can it be? A royal pie? A toy car? A stuffed camel? A guitar? Fireworks? A stink bomb? darwinfish, darwinbish BITE 12:45, 21 December 2014 (UTC).

(What would you like it to be?)

Ha ha ha, you're a vile one, Cindy Lou Who, but I'll take the last two, put them together, light a match, watch it spread, my soul being full of gunk, crying out the magic words "Stink! Stank! Stunk!". ---Sluzzelin talk 13:40, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Apologies for addressing you as Cindy Lou, dear Darwinishes. I was under the faulty impression that your edit was a reaction to another edit of mine to another editor, whom I thought to be identical to you and you. But now I've seen her refer to one of you in the third person and disrespectfully ...
I love that selection. The royal pie really fascinates me, up close there's so much life in it - the fireworks are beautiful, you picked one of the few car models for whom I have a soft spot, stuffed camels ... hmmm, ... Thank you dearest of all Darwinishes, and have yourselves a happy season! ---Sluzzelin talk 23:38, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
