Kam, where are you putting the emphasis? On the Pat? On the Tin? On the Kin?



Emphasis on the 'tin' - Pat-TIN-kin.

^ Ahahahaha!!! ;D

Mandy Patinkin

Say his name. Is it Pat-eenk-kin? Pat-tin-kin? Pah-teenk-kin? Something else?

Where's the accent? Where's the emphasis?
Now that you mention it, this. This is my question too.

I heard Kitty Montgomery say "Pat-tin-kin" on Dharma and Greg once.

This might be a little gross...


Does anyone else cry when they throw up?

Ok, if Carnation is going to ask that question, I'm going to ask mine (this one is kinda embarrassing, but since we're on the topic!).

Can anyone else not use those disposable seat covers because they stick to the back of your legs and are worse than just sitting on the seat as is?  Or, is that just me?  Is there a way to not have that happen?  I end up with part of the cover in the toilet getting wet and then standing up and having icky water drip all over the floor and my feet, because the dang cover is stuck to my butt.

No, I'm sorry, I think it's a law of the universe that those will ever be more trouble than they are worth ;D

I agree.  If I feel like I need more than a wipe down on the seat, I would rather tear some pieces of toilet paper and lay them down and sit on them rather than those disposable covers.

Yes.  Not much, but I do tear up a little.
Talk nerdy to me.

Yes, I do. I think it must be something with how that mechanism works...and the force used or something.

Plus, the fact that it's disgusting sure doesn't help.

I don't but I'm also lucky to not be physically ill very often (as in, about 6 times in my life as I can recall it).

For me, I figure since I regularly go in the kid's elementary school bathroom (it's right across the hall from my class - the only adult one is two floors up), I've seen most of the germs around...  :o

You use the kids' bathroom? You are gonna live forever! You're like Keith Richards, except one assumes you still look, y'know, alive.  ;D

I'm wondering why a dude would be named "Mandy".

(Hopefully he doesn't send gravelings after me for asking  :o)

He wasn't. It's a nickname. His real name is Mandel Bruce Patinkin.

I do, but I always figured it was just because I'm so miserable then. :(

Physical distress often puts a strain on the emotions. I'm so glad it's not just me. I always felt ridiculous dissolving into tears whenever it happened.  :-[
