I would definitely bring some vegan cookies for you and Mrs. Bearish. Lucky woman, and certainly very special herself.
Nicely played! You are welcome anytime, with or without cookies.

Most of history is guessing, and the rest is prejudice.

Very nice, but missing one element!

And don't forget the varieties of love too:

Amicitia, Caritas, Felicitas, Agape, Eros... some are overworked and some are barely known nowadays.

and a few new ones, courtesy of this forum. :D

high-frequency love - in the words of Jimi Hendrix, "is it love or just confusion?" - or nymphomania? Hehe.
low-frequency love - very selective, but high impact, no doubt about that!
amateur love - maybe a bit awkward and shy, but pure and sincere too
professional love - ahem, let's use the term "luv" loosely here - this one has hooks and tentacles.  But if it's appealing, then study up on pre-nups!

Good weekends to all - snowing here and time to go skiing!

Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.
