I really, really like my co-workers

From an e-mail exchange between me and D. this morning:

3/22/06, 7:58 a.m.
From Chris to David

[in reference to a job I needed to correct]: A-fixing I will go, a-fixing I
will go, hi-ho-fa-mare-ee-o, a-fixing I will go!

From David to Chris


I remember singing it "Hi, ho, the dairy-o..." but I'd accept just about
anything at this point. After all, I don't think I have sung it since
kindergarten.

From Chris to David


English existed when you were in kindergarten? Wow!

From David to Chris


Well, we spoke much like this:

But for to tellen yow of his array,
His hors were goode, but he was nat gay.
Of fustian he wered a gypon
Al bismotered with his habergeon,
For he was late ycome from his viage,
And wente for to doon his pilgrymage.


But yes, English existed.

From Chris to David


Please let me send this to Audrey. Please.

(Could I also please quote it on my journal?)
