I'm glad you had a "sunny" Christmas although Hallmark might have a hard time marketing that! My Christmas was fine, too, thanks, although it does seem strange discussing it at this time! That's my own fault though!:bugeyed
While always maintaining that he has always been in fact straight, Michael himself once said that ambiguous perceptions about his sexuality kept people wondering and therefore contributed to ongoing fascination with him something he wanted at least on his terms.
Yes, I know the word "shag" is different in other countries.
In the U.S., "shag" is far less offensive than in other English-speaking countries. Singapore briefly forced a title change to "The Spy Who Shioked Me" ("Shioked" means "treated nicely").
Although the word "shag" is less offensive in the U.S. than most other countries, not all translated the title into something less raunchy. The Norwegian title of the movie is "Spionen som spermet meg", which is a slightly dirtier way of saying "The spy who ejaculated on me".
Klein was Michael's friend for over 25 years and he's a dermatological genius!:wild: He also belongs on the cover of GQ because he's got a sexy way about him! I'm comfortable and confident enough with my heterosexuality that I don't feel insecure by pointing out the sex appeal of the sexy beast known as Dr. K!
I prefer the previous version of vBulletin as well but I don't think it's coming back anytime soon!
Before purchasing you might want to wait until the books are discounted during Boxing Day. I'm sure Jermaine's will be in the bargain bin in no time! Also, if you aren't that keen on the book you could borrow it from the library when it becomes available.
I just want to add that when I said "you don't understand," I didn't mean it in a way that implies that you're uneducated or generally ignorant since you clearly aren't. I simply meant that in relation to the topic under consideration I was able to inform you of certain facts.
I thought I'd clear that up in case you had any doubts about my meaning that you'd no doubt raise upon further review!
I don't think you understand the situation here. Most Canadians live within 30 miles of the U.S. border and we are inculcated with American media and there is only a subtle difference between the standard American accent and the standard Canadian accent so most people on both sides of the border, even native born but especially immigrants who bring their own distinctive accents, believe the two North American accents have overlapped and/or are the same. If I can't identify whether a specific speaker is originally American or Canadian that doesn't mean that I can't generally distinguish between the more nasal standard American accent and the slightly more enunciated standard Canadian accent.
This is a maxim I usually try to apply myself but you may find it of use as well: "Don't put off until tomorrow what you could do today." We should apply this to visiting MJEternal. The reason I haven't visited is because all my regular contacts are here, or on MJFC, and I get my Michael Jackson news on those forums as well so there's really no need to go there. We both decided we would visit (I did register when it opened) in order to establish an emergency contact destination should this forum ever go offline.
Blame? Klein? He deserves nothing but praise for the friendship and professional benefit he bestowed on Michael for twenty-five years!
