Garak is just the best. I appreciate his character so much more watching DS9 through again as an adult.

#Haiku is fast, simple to use, easy to learn and yet very powerful. Agreed. Lunch then back to learning
Been thinking about interspecies communication and diplomacy a lot lately...
"So this is your alphabet. It has 26 glyphs in current use, it fits on a business card, and it makes no sense at all."
"No arguments there."
"This is your international phonetic alphabet. The alphabet of the human speech system. Can you memorize this sheet of paper?"
"Uh... Sure, yeah, if that's my job."
"Good." *phonebook-sized thump* "This is the intergalactic phonetic alphabet. We'll work up to that."
Woke up at 0500. Showering and one of the boys gets up. Tell him to go back to bed. Then the next one gets up. They yell at each other to go back to bed until I yell from the shower to go to bed *now*. Youngest one wakes up. The older two are in bed and I finish my shower. Then the steam from the shower sets off the fire alarm. Then *all* of the fire alarms. Then the older two boys start screaming. I finish resetting the alarm and now everyone's in our bed.
Good morning folks.
